BACKGROUND AND AIMS During lateral root development a new meristem is formed within the mother root body. The main objective of this work was to simulate lateral root formation in Arabidopsis thaliana and to study a potential role of the principal directions in this process. Lateral root growth is anisotropic, so that three principal directions of growth can be distinguished within the organ. This suggests a tensorial character of growth and allows for its description by means of the growth… CONTINUE READING
