The role of auxin in leaf development in Solidago species
Author(s): R. H. Goodwin
Article Topic(s): Plant growth regulator,Morphology
Research Setting(s): Laboratory,Greenhouse
Species Referenced: Solidago sempervirens (Seaside goldenrod),
AbstractProvides a detailed comparison of leaf growth and morphology between Solidago sempervirens and S. rugosa. Solidago sempervirens has one leaf that rapidly elongates at a time, and this leaf prevents others from elongating. The elongation and rapid growth corresponds to high levels of auxin.
