Structures involved in plant growth
Meristems are sites of continuous cell division in multicellular plants.
Found in meristematic zones where cells form, specialize and differentiate
Cambium gives rise to the xylem and phloem for transport
They transport water and nutrients necessary for plant growth.
Flowers facilitate reproduction through self pollination or cross pollination
Seeds store food manufactured by plants as a reservoir
Plant structures associated with cytokinins
They also promote the plant species propagation through dispersal.
Leaves and meristems are plant structures majorly associated with cytokinins
Cytokinins promote cell division and differentiation in meristematic zones.
They promote nutrient synthesis, prevent yellowing and aging in leaves.
How cytokinins influence plant growth and function.
Effects of cytokinin deficiency and excess on plant growth and function
