Plant Growth Apical Dominance Stem Function Conduction involves moving substances

manufactured in the leaves through the phloem to other parts of the plant including developing leaves, stems, roots, developing flowers, seeds and fruits The xylem carries water from the roots to the

leaves, where water is transpired Support involves holding the plant off the ground Stems may function to a certain extent in storage as well, storing material in parenchyma cells

Primary Growth of the Stem The apical meristem adds cells to the plant body and forms leaf primordia and bud primordia that develop into lateral branches

The apical meristem of a stem lacks a protective cover like the root cap of roots Protoderm always originates from the outermost meristem cell layer

Procambium and part of the ground meristem (which will form the cortex and sometimes part of the pith) form from the peripheral meristem The rest of the ground meristem (which forms some or all of the

pith) is formed by the pith meristem Stem Growth

Increase in primary thickness Growth in thickness of the primary body of the stem involves longitudinal division and cell enlargement in both cortex and pith - in

plants with secondary growth, primary thickening of the stem is moderate Monocots usually lack secondary growth, but may have massive primary thickening

and growth (palms) Monocot primary growth

Primary and Secondary Stem Growth Primary Stem Structure

In some conifers and dicots, the narrow, elongated procambial cells (and consequently the primary vascular tissues that develop from them) appear as a more or less continuous hollow cylinder within

the ground tissue - the outer region of the ground tissue is called the cortex and the inner region is the pith A good example of this structure is basswood Tilia it has secondary growth

Basswood or Linden (Tilia) Primary Stem Structure

In other conifers and dicots, the primary vascular tissues develop as a cylinder of discrete strands separated from one another by ground tissue The ground tissue separating the procambial

strands (and later mature vascular bundles) is continuous with cortex and pith and is called the interfascicular parenchyma (between the bundles) The interfascicular regions are often called pith

rays Sunflower Stem Structure

Primary Stem Structure In most monocots and some herbaceous dicots, the arrangement of procambial strands and vascular bundles is more complex vascular tissues do not appear as a single ring,

but instead develop as more than one ring or are scattered throughout the ground tissue here ground tissue cannot be distinguished as pith and cortex seen in corn

Corn (Zea mays) stem structure Relationship of vascular tissue in leaves and stem

The pattern formed by the vascular bundles in the stem reflects the close structural and developmental relationship between the stem and its leaves at each node, one or more vascular bundles diverge

from the cylinder of strands in the stem, cross the cortex and enter the leaf or leaves attached at that node The extensions from the vascular system in the

stem toward the leaves are called the leaf traces Relationship of vascular tissue in stems and vascular bundles

Leaf Traces and Stem Bundles If stem bundles are followed either upward or downward in the stem, they will be found to be

associated with several leaf traces - a stem bundle and its associated leaf traces are called a sympodium In stems of some species, some or all or the

sympodia are interconnected In other species, all the sympodia are independent units of the vascular system

Vascular bundles are frequently arranged in spiral fashion Leaf Structure

Leaf Internal Structure variations in internal structure of leaves are largely due to growth habit of the plant

mesophytes are plants that require abundant soil moisture and a fairly humid environment - the most common plants - typically have fairly well developed epidermis, especially on upper surface of leaf, stomata on both sides of leaf

hydrophyte - plants that depend on a very abundant supply of water or which grow wholly or partially submerged in water have thin epidermis, stomata only on upper surface xerophyte - plants adapted to arid habitats - very thick epidermis, stomata open to stomatal crypts with protective hairs
