Water shoots or long shoots are those which appear low on the trunks of trees, or about stumps of trees recently cut down. The ordinary twigs are those found at the ends of branches. Interest in the cooperative study of water shoots and ordinary shoots on trees was aroused by the very marked differences, even in a single years growth, in length and the diameter of two types. The former is greater in diameter , much longer, and with more nodes, longer internodes and longer leaves than the twigs which grew ordinarily at the ends of branches. The object of this investigation was to correlate gross differences with differences in microscopic anatomy and to see what developmental phenomena are responsible for the differences.
