  • Lateral growth from the apex of vertical structures is widespread in cladoniiform lichens. In the family Cladoniaceae, it is accomplished through a developmental shift in the meristem, in which growth orientation changes from isotropous to anisotropous. In anisotropous development, the more or less constant relationship among the axial, radial, and circumferential planes of growth is altered during ontogeny. The result is pronounced lateral elongation of the apical meristem, a departure from… CONTINUE READING
