A simple mathematical model of allometric exponential growth describes the early three-dimensional growth dynamics of secondary xylem in Arabidopsis roots

Abstract:

Unravelling the specific growth dynamics of key tissues and organs is fundamental to understand how multicellular organisms orchestrate their different growth programmes. In plants, the secondary growth (thickening) of stems and roots provides the mechanical support that plants need to achieve their developmental potential. We used conventional anatomical and microscopy techniques, image-processing software, and quantitative analysis to understand and mathematically describe the growth dynami...
