Summary Introduction

Concept introduction: The directional movement of different plant parts in response to different environmental stimuli like light, water or gravity is known as tropism. There are several types of tropic movements exhibited by plants and they are primarily depending on the type of stimuli associated with the movement. The directional movement of plant roots in response to gravity in that particular area is called gravitotropic movement.

Explanation

Statoliths: Organelles are made up of amyloplasts seen in the root cap cells and border vascular tissues of every plant are primarily responsible for the gravitotropic movements of plants. They are the amyloplast cells involved in sensing gravity of a particular area.

The movement of root system is primarily dependent on the gravity of the area where it is growing...
