Structures involved in plant growth

Meristems are sites of continuous cell division in multicellular plants.Found in meristematic zones where cells form, specialize and differentiateCambium gives rise to the xylem and phloem for transportThey transport water and nutrients necessary for plant growth.Flowers facilitate reproduction through self pollination or cross pollinationSeeds 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 cytokininsCytokinins promote cell division and differentiation in meristematic zones.They promote nutrient synthesis, prevent yellowing and aging in leaves.
