Meristematic tissues in roots and shoots are characterized by fast-dividing cell groups, contributing to the continuous growth and development of plants. In both plants and animals, somatic growth occurs through mitotic division, where daughter cells are produced with unchanged chromosome numbers. Through this simulation, participants will delve into the structure and significance of meristematic tissue, gaining insights into its vital role in supporting plant growth. Specifically focusing on the activity of meristematic tissue in onion roots, learners will explore how this specialized tissue drives the growth and sustenance of roots. By the end of the simulation, participants will have a comprehensive understanding of the intricate processes involved in meristematic tissue function and its importance in plant biology.
