Differentiation between Panax ginseng and Oplopanax horridus

The secondary xylem of P. ginseng consists mostly of parenchyma, whereas that of O. horridus consists primarily of fibers. Overall, the wood of O. horridus has a much denser and more regular appearance (compare photomicrographs of the root transverse section of each species). In addition, the secretory ducts of P. ginseng are considerably smaller in diameter (up to 120 |im) compared to those of O. horridus (up to 200 ^m).
