Auxins and Shoot Tropisms--A Tenuous Connection?
Hall, A. B.; And Others
Journal of Biological Education, v14 n3 p195-99 Sep 1980
Discussed is the Cholodny-Went hypothesis which explains geo- and phototropic curvature in shoots in terms of a perception phase at the apex with a response at some remote site. Hormonal messages, lateral transmission of a stimulus, auxin concentration gradients, and what should be taught concerning this hypothesis are discussed. (DS)
