Electron microscopic examination of vessels and fibre-tracheids of Alstonia scholaris exposed to tunneIIing bacteria (TB) in liquid cuItures showed degradation of aU areas of the secondary waU incIuding the highly lignified middle lameUa in advanced stages of attack. However, vestured pit membranes and vestures appeared to be resistant to degradation by TB even when aU other waU areas in A. scholaris wood ceIIs were severely degraded. The size comparison indicated vestures to be considerably smaIIer than TB, and we suspect that this may be the primary reason why vestures in A. scholaris wood were resistant to degradation.
