When analysing the fermentative breakdown of cell wall material in plants it is important to realize that it is not homogeneous. The cell walls are composed of different cell wall types which can differ in both their breakdown characteristics and composition. In this experiment in vitro cumulative gas production (Theodorou et al., 1994) was measured to study breakdown characteristics of cell walls from hulls and endosperm of soya beans.
