What is Photoperiodism? The variations in day length are Galled photoperiod and the phenomenon is called photoperiodism. It is another very important way in which light exerts its influence on living organisms.

COORDINATION IN PLANTS | PLANT MOVEMENTS & HORMONES

What is Coordination in Plants? Plants behave but their behaviour is fundamentally different from that of animals. The difference is due to two ways of life sessile on one hand and motile on the other.      Passive, complex and dynamic: Plants, compared to animals are far from being passive, and are a complex dynamic organism […]

MOVEMENTS IN PLANTS | DIFFERENT TYPES OF MOVEMENTS

What are Movements in Plants? Living Organisms respond to the external as well as internal stimuli. Animals move in response to external stimuli by motion. Similarly, plants also show movements. Animals change their location in response to the stimulus. Plants are fixed therefore they change their growth pattern. Let’s discuss in detail different types of […]
