The interaction of photo- and gravitropic stimulation was studied by analysing the curvature of maize (Zea mays L.) coleoptiles subjected to rotation on horizontal clinostats. Gravitropic curvature in different directions with respect to the stimulation plane was found to be transient. This instability was caused by an increasing deviation of response direction from the stimulation plane towards the caryopsis. The bending angle as such, however, increased steadily. This reorientation of the… CONTINUE READING
