What are the two basic mechanisms of morphogenesis in plants? Describe the patterns of cell division by which a plant part (a) grows longer and (b) adds girth.

Summary Introduction

To review:

The two basic mechanisms of morphogenesis in plants and the patterns of cell division by which a part of a plant grows in (a) length and (b) girth.

Introduction:

Morphogenesis is the process by which cell division leads to characteristic growth patterns in a plant tissue, with different parts developing differently as per need. It involves two basic mechanisms, that is, oriental cell division and cell expansion.

Explanation

The cells divide in specific patterns during morphogenesis, in order to develop specific parts of the plant tissue depending upon the function. The two basic mechanisms of morphogenesis in plants are oriental cell division and cell expansion.

The oriental cell division occurs when cells divide, and new cell plates and cell walls form, stacking cells atop each other in a transverse plane or parallel to each other in another plane...
