Abstract
Understanding of many wood technological features depends on anatomical characteristics which, unfortunately, researchers in Iran have not focused on recently.

Three mature shrubs were selected and small cubic samples of woody stem and root were taken. Micro-sections were obtained with micro-tome and after dying with Astra-blue and Safranin the sections were mounted in Canada balsam. The results showed that many differences between roots and stems exist, such as distinct...
