In view of the fact that function and structure, at cytological levels, cannot he separated, electron microscopic studies of the sieve tubes of Nymphoides petiole using different preparation techniques were carried out concurrently with physiological work. The structure of the sieve plate was investigated in detail. Side by side some exploratory experiments to work out a method of measuring the velocity of transport and its temperature dependence were carried out using again the long petiole of Nymphoides. The implications of the present findings are discussed in relation to the prevailing theories of transport mechanism.
