Hormonal regulation of tuberization of cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz)
The relative distribution of dry matter over shoot and tuberous roots is an important factor in determining the yield of cassava. Under sub-tropical conditions the dry matter distribution pattern is not always efficient. ...
The biochemical and cytokinin changes in the developing and germinating seeds of Podocarpus henkelli stapf.
A review of the literature revealed that there is a lack of depth in our knowledge of gymnospermous seeds with regard to the development and germination processes. The phytohormones, particularly the cytokinins have ...
The role of cytokinins in the regulation of apical dominance in Pisum sativum.
Intact or decapitated Pisum sativum seedlings were used to investigate the correlative inhibition of lateral buds by the shoot apex - a developmental process known as apical dominance. Apical dominance is considered to ...
