Anatomy Anatomical features of the mantle Anatomy of the outer mantle layer of the ectormycorrhizal tip

anatomy mantle outer mantle layer {of ectomycorrhizal tip} organisation

1 like other parts of mantle
2 plectenchymatous
3 pseudoparenchymatous
4 of a transistional type between plectenchymatous and pseudoparenchymatous

Plectenchymatous mantles are always plectenchymatous at the very tip. But pseudoparenchymatous mantles may have a plectenchymatous very tip. This is, because the most extreme ends are the youngest parts in an ontogenetical view and are therefore less differentiated.
