Biology Question Bank for Entrance Exams

For AIPMT Main other Medical Entrance Exam Prepration, Question Bank for Biology Growth and Development in Plants is given below.

  • In plants development is considered as the sum of these processes – (1) Growth and (2) Differentiation.
  • During this process a complex body organisation is formed that produces roots, leaves, branches,flowers, fruits, seeds eventually they die.
  • Growth can be defined as an irreversible increase in the size and weight also number of the cells of an organism
  • Physiologically speaking, growth is an outcome of metabolism. There is an increase in the dry weight as an outcome of growth.
  • In plants, growth is limited to meristematic tissues only. There are three main activities involved inthe process of growth – (1) Cell division of meristemic cells. (2) Enlargement of newly formed cells.(3) Cellular differentiation.
  • Growth in length is called- primary growth and growth in the girth is called- secondary growth. Theincreased growth per unit time is known as growth rate.
  • Growth is divided in to three phases: (1) Phase of cell division. (2) Phase of cell enlargement and (3)Phase of cell differentiation. The entire period, covering the period from cell divison to cell differentiation is called grand period of growth.
  • Some cells lose power of division and acquire definite characteristics and become permanant tissue.
  • This are called differentiated cells. Such differentiated cells regain their power of division underspecefic conditions; this cells are called dedifferentiated cells (eg. root cambium)
  • Factors which affect growth are water, oxygen, temperature, light and nutrients. For a more exact measurement of growth in length of a plant, an auxonometer is used.
  • Development is a term that includes all  changes, that an organism goes through during its life cycle from germination of the seed to senescence. The plant growth regulaters (PGRS) are small, simple,molecules of diverse chemical composition. Such chemicals are called plant-growth regulators orplant hormones. They are classified in to five main groups: (1) Auxins, (2) Gibberrelins, (3) Cytokinins,(4) Abscisic acid and (5) Ethylene. Some of the vitamins also act as growth-regulators.
  • Seed dormarcy is defined as a state in which seeds are prevented from germinating even under environmental conditions or external factors normaly are favorable for germination. There are mainlyfour types of dormancy: (1) Exogenous dormancy, (2) Endogenous dormancy, (3) Combinational dormancy, (4) Secdonary dormancy. The entire process from the showing of the seed in the soil to the emergence of a young sapling, consititutes germination. “Mangrooves” are a special type of vegetation which live in the basin (creek) region around sea-shore. They exhibit a different kind of germination, Such a germination is called “Viviparous germination”.
  •   Senescence is a period between complete maturation of an individual and the death of that individual.The phenomenon of the dropping of leaf, flower and fruit is called-abscission. In the developmentof plants and process of flowering, response to the stimulus of “period of available light” by plants is called photoperiodism. Better and earliar germination is induced, when seeds are provided with specific low temperatures for a definite period of time. Flowering is also earlier in the plants which develop from them. This artificial treatment is called vernalization.
  •  There are two main types of plant movements; (a) Locomotory movement (1) Autonomous movement; (i) Amoebic movement; (ii) Induced movement; (iii) Circulatory movement and (iv) Rotation movement. (2) Induced movment (i) Phototaxis, (ii) Chematoxis (iii) Thermotaxis, (iv) Thigmotaxis.
