The apex of a growing shoot where primary cell division occurs and new organs are initiated.
a region of active mitosis at the stem tip or near the root tip. The meristem responsible for primary growth.
The meristem at the tip of a shoot or root; responsible for the plant's primary growth. Apomixis (ap oh mix´ is) [Gr. apo: away from + mixis: sexual intercourse] • The asexual production of seeds.
Meristem is embryonic tissue. Apical meristem is meristem at the tip of the stem. Thus, apical meristem is meristem tissue that is contained in the terminal or apical buds. DIAGRAM: Root Anatomy PHOTOS
A mass of undifferentiated cells at the tip of a root or shoot that are capable of division. See Apical Dominance
Growing point. A zone of cell division at the tip of the stem or the root. Behind the meristem the cells continue to divide and differentiation begins.
the growing point (bud) of the stem through which vertical growth occurs.
embryonic, totipotent tissue in the tips of the roots and shoots of plants
A group of plant cells that are found at the growing tip of a root or a stem. These cells are capable of dividing indefinitely and their main function is the production of new growth.
The embryonic tissue at the 'growing tips' of stems and roots of plants.
meristem (embryonic tissue) at the tip of a shoot or root that is responsible for increasing the plant's length.
Meristematic cells at the apex of a root or shoot.
Group of cells at the growing tip of a branch or root. It divides cells to create new tissues.
The apical meristem, or growing tip, is a completely undifferentiated meristematic tissue found in the buds and growing tips of root in plants. Its main function is to begin growth of new cells in young seedlings at the tips of roots and shoots (forming buds, among other things). Specifically, an active apical meristem lays down a growing root or shoot behind itself, pushing itself forward.
