TYPES OF STEMS

 

Herbaceous stems:

They do not have developed ligneous stiffened structures. They are generally frail. We find them in plants like the following:

STEMS

Annual plants: Plants with a year life-time. Weeds generally belong to this group.

Vivacious plants: Plants with aerial stems lasting a single season, but keeping underground structures from which new stems spring again next seas on.

Ligneous stems:

They have developed rigid, stiffened structures, what we normally know as "wood". According to the height they attain we classify them into:

Trees: Plants with ligneous stems, with a superior height of five meters. In this case we call the stems trunks. They do not generally branch up to a considerable distance from the soil.
