This happens due to cell divisions that occur in such a way that a single longitudinal file of cells becomes double files. The other three sides donate cells to form epidermis, cortex and vascular cylinder.

One of the layers gives rise to the stele and the other to the cortex and root cap. It consists of conspicuous longitudinal files of cells.

In Korper-Kappe theory

Apical cell theory is confined to vascular cryptogams only as the root apical meristem of flowering plants does not have a single apical cell. In certain members of the families Juglandaceae, Rosaceae, Leguminosae, Tiliaceae etc.

The korper-kappe theory of root apex is comparable with tunica-corpus theory of shoot apex. Anybody can ask kaope question Anybody can answer The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.


Here’s how it works: According korepr Hanstein root apical meristem consists of three cell-initiating regions called histogens Fig. The root apex forms no branches, and no lateral structures like the leaves. Apical Cell Theory 2. The cells of this region divide first horizontally.

For that reason the root apex shows no change in morphology. Here’s how it works: This type is found in majority of dicotyledonous plants. It divides longitudinally and the two daughter cells thus formed have the potentiality of cell division.

The Korper-Kappe Theory of Root Apex | Essay | Botany

Thus the planes of the two divisions form a T in a median longitudinal section of the root. The theory says that the cells in the root apex divide in a pattern called T-divisions. The daughter cell that faces the root apex inherits the initial function.

The epidermis arises from the outermost layer of the cortex. A single apical cell is present only in vascular cryptogams, e. During growth the root changes in diameter. This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging articles, answers and notes. The body-cap concept is illustrated below on analyzing the divisions in the derivatives of apical cell Fig.

In the fourth additional type, there are four rows of initials giving rise to the root cap, the epidermis, the cortex and the stele, independently. The third type is found in Haemanthus coccineus. Korper and kappe-these two zones of root are delimited by planes of cell division.


What modification is needed in the statement?

In Korper-Kappe theory

The daughter cells are parallel in arrangement, share a common wall and divide by transverse partition followed by longitudinal partition in one cell.

Though histogen theory is abandoned to explain shoot apex, Eames and MacDaniels illustrated the root apical meristem on the basis of histogen concept. In contrast to that of the shoot apex, the apical ,orper of the root apex generates cells not only toward the axis but also away from it to form the root cap. It is the T-division that characterizes korper and kappe. Continuous T-divisions result in the formation of double-rowed region over a single rowed region.

The inner region of the apex is the korper. In the korper the initial cell first divides by transverse partition and forms two cells. Anticlinal division is the characteristic of tunica whereas corpus exhibits both anticlinal and periclinal division.
