The purpose of this paper is to analyse and interpret, so far as is possible, the natural geostrophic torsions of growing organs, and also those caused by applied auxin, in the light of evidence presented previously (I942, I945, I946, I947) or to be presented here. The original purpose of these studies was to analyse only the process of movement; but after the discovery of the torsions which are caused in petioles, stems and roots by hetero-auxin applied to them on one flank when horizontal or… Expand
