Data from: An ignored anatomical variable: pore shape shows a nonrandom variation pattern in xylem cross section

Xiping Zhao, Pingping Guo & Haixin Peng
Anatomical characteristics of vessels have a profound impact on the hydraulic conductivity of the xylem. However, pore shape, the cross-section shape of a vessel, has been ignored in previous hydraulic architecture studies. In this study, we examined whether pore shape tended to be circular, and whether this variation tendency might be affected by water flow path-length and cambial age. The circularity pores in Betula platyphylla Roth and Quercus mongolica (only earlywood) were analyzed from the...
