Fibres

Fibres are elongated cells with pitted cell walls. Found in water-conducting tissue, xylem (transport tissue in vascular plants ) and food-conducting tissue, phloem (living tissue carries organic nutrients), along leaf veins and margins, and surrounding vascular bundles in stems.

Morphology (fibre)

Morphology is a term used to describe the study of the physical form and structure (see below) of a material and include a broad spectre of characteristics. Fibre morphology contains macro-structure, micro-structure, the sub-microscopic and fine structure of fibres, which are only observable through a light microscope.
