Histological foundations of differentiation and development in plants

  • R. Bloch
Part of the Handbuch der Pflanzenphysiologie / Encyclopedia of Plant Physiology book series (532, volume 15)

Abstract

Growth rarely occurs as a mere, amorphous increase in mass; it is usually associated with organized development. Differences may be noted in the amount, distribution, and character of the growth processes. These gradually lead to differentiation of the internal structure and the external form of the plant1.
