what is the difference between autumn wood and spring wood????
This concept is actually based on the activity of cambium rings....
(1) In the spring season the cambium rings are frequently formed that is they are active. They form a large no. of xylem elements......and hence the wood formed during this season is called SPRING WOOD.
(2) Similarly, in winter this cambium activity is not that much active......and the wood formed during this time is called AUTUMN WOOD
Hope its convenient....:-)
