The hydrolysed lateral primary walls of tracheary elements of the petiolar xylem of Eucalyptus delegatensis were examined by electron microscopy. Vessel-vessel and vessel-tracheid hydrolysed walls were strikingly different in appearance from tracheid-tracheid walls. The difference seemed to be in the degree to which the primary walls were hydrolysed. The observations suggest the wall hydrolysis to be an ordered and controlled process.
