Abstract

Formally, anatomy deals with both the actual and conceptual isolation of various parts and systems of an organism for the purpose of describing its parts, their positions, relations, structures, and functions. Although you may associate memorization with anatomy, it really serves to structure our thinking about an organism. In fact, the human mind seems to understand a complex situation or structure by first subdividing it into components, then studying each component and finally relating the components. Reflect for a minute: we do this as teachers, researchers, and students. It seems reasonable, even though perhaps not formally correct, to describe the dissection of a study into its parts, their examination, and their relations as the anatomy of a study. I plan for the following anatomy to focus your attention on general structures without particular concern for occasional difficulties and degeneracies.

The seedcoat anatomy in the hilar region was examined in dry, imbibed and germinating seeds of Eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis L.). A discontinuous area was observed between macrosclereid cells in the palisade layer of the seedcoat which formed a hilar slit. A cap was formed during germination as the seedcoat separated along the hilar slit and was hinged by the macrosclereids in the area of the seedcoat opposite to the hilar slit. The discontinuity observed in the palisade layer was the remnant of the area traversed by the vascular trace between the funiculus and the seedcoat of the developing ovule. There were no apparent anatomical differences in the hilar region of the seedcoat between dormant and nondormant imbibed seeds. However, the thickened mesophyll of the seedcoat in this region and the capacity of the endosperm to stretch along with the elongating radicle may contribute to maintaining dormancy in redbud seeds.
