Plant cells either die by "accident" (traumatic cell death) or by "design" (programmed cell death; PCD). There is clear evidence that cell death during plant development and interactions with the environment involves PCD (in Gray and Johal, 1998). K. daigremontiana reproduces asexually by forming plantlets from leaf indentations which fall to soil and convert into adult plants. In nature, its entire plant body except leaf-plantlets senesces as consequence of floral differentiation or stressful… CONTINUE READING
