    The early embryo is linear with apical meristems on either end and one or two seed leaves or axis below the cotyledons is called the hypocotyl, at the tip of which is the radicle that gives rise to the primary root of the seedling. The axis above the attachment of the cotyledons is the epicotyl, which also ends in an apical some seeds, the first foliage leaves .

Beck. A plant has two organ systems: 1) the shoot system, and 2) the root system. The shoot system is above ground and includes the organs such as leaves, buds, stems, flowers (if the plant has any), and fruits (if the plant has any). The root system includes those parts of the plant below ground, such as the roots, tubers, and rhizomes.

    In a plant’s male reproductive organs, development of pollen takes place in a structure known as the microsporangium (Figure ). The microsporangia, which are usually bilobed, are pollen sacs in which the microspores develop into pollen grains. And it is those structure–function aspects that are emphasized here, underlining Evert's view that a ‘thorough knowledge of the structure and development of cells and tissues is essential for a realistic interpretation of plant function ’ (Preface, page xv).Cited by:

It is an auxin, a member of one of six known classes of plant growth regulators (sometimes called plant hormones), all of which have powerful influences on plant development.

The five other known classes are the gibberellins, the cytokinins, abscisic acid, the gas ethylene, and the brassinosteroids. In angiosperms, the process of seed development begins with double fertilization and involves the fusion of the egg and sperm nuclei into a zygote.

The second part of this process is the fusion of the polar nuclei with a second sperm cell nucleus, thus forming a. Plant Propagation.

Root growth begins with seed germination. When the plant embryo emerges from the seed, the radicle of the embryo forms the root system. The tip of the root is protected by the root cap, a structure exclusive to roots and unlike any other plant structure.

The root cap is continuously replaced because it gets damaged easily as the root pushes. Structure and Development of the Plant Body—An Overview. Search for more papers by this author.

Consequently, a basic knowledge of plant structure is assumed. The facts of plant morphogenesis can be obtained from the books listed in the General Reading seetion at the end of Chapter : Springer Netherlands. What I'm gonna show you now, is the molecular model for flower development, which is termed the ABC model.

This model was first proposed by Elliot Myerwitz, and his labmates at Cal Tech University. And it's based on numerous studies of mutants in floral structure.

The ABC model claims three types of genes that are needed for flower development. All cells of a plant are descendents of the zygote.

The question is, then, why and how do they have different structural and functional attributes. Development is the sum of two processes: growth and differentiation. To begin with, it is essential and sufficient to know that the development of a mature plant from a zygote (fertilised egg) followFile Size: KB.
