Rays more than 10 per mm abundant.

A population of Aspidosperma macrocarpon Apocynaceae with leaf galls induced by a Pseudophacopteron sp. Assuming the morphological similarity between host leaves and intralaminar galls, a gradient from non-galled leaves towards galls should be generated, establishing a morpho-physiological continuum.

Drying Defects Ease of Drying: Planing This species is easy to plane. Our objective was to analyze the nutritional status and the establishment macrocarpkn a physiological continuum between the galls and the non-galled leaves of A.
