2] down from the shoots into the roots (Colmer and Voesenek 2009), as well as its ability to produce specialised roots with aerenchyma
(van der Moezel et al.
An example of the latter is aerenchyma
, a specialised type of parenchyma tissue containing continuous intercellular spaces, typical of aquatic plants in which it aids buoyancy and air circulation within submerged parts of the plant.
Rhizomes and stems of wetland Equisetum species have large canals that are thought to function like aerenchyma
tissue in facilitating [O.
ARS scientists and university breeders have introduced aerenchyma
into wheat and corn experimentally.
exclusion and salt resistance of wheat (Triticum aestivum) in saline-waterlogged conditions are improved by the development of adventitious nodal roots and cortical root aerenchyma

cells and parenchyma cells under different levels of cadmium and calcium.
Morphological and anatomical structures that confer adaptation to prolonged flooding include adventitious roots, increased aerenchyma
tissue in stems, and development of hypertrophic stem lenticels (Schaffer et al.
Sections done in the stem did not present any alteration in the conduction tissues of xylem, phloem and aerenchyma

prostrata because its roots do not contain aerenchyma
tissue (Egan 1999).
tissues in the cortex permit the rice plant to persist in very poorly drained soils.
