Sample text

The cells farthest from the micropyle divide more rapidly in the ensuing period than do those at the micropylar end, and the embryo at this time exhibits a marked axial gradient in cell size. These small cells, occupying about one-third of the embryonic volume, give rise upon further development to the organized embryo with shoot and root apices and cotyledons. The larger cells, which make up the other two-thirds of the embryo, divide more slowly, are vacuolated, and, according to some, constitute a suspensor (Wardlaw, 1955).

The free nuclear stage may be even more extensive than in Ginkgo, as in the cycad Dioon edule, where more than a thousand nuclei have been noted in the coenocytic embryo. Conversely, this stage may be relatively brief, as in the conifers, in which the number of free nuclei may range from 32 or 64 in members of the family Araucariaceae to 2 in the Cupressaceae. In Sequoia (redwood) the first division of the zygote is followed by cell wall formation, so there is no free nuclear stage in the embryo of this species.

Pollock and Jensen, 1964). Embryo size Cell size 10 20 50 100 Cell number in the embryo proper decreases progressively until, at the 100-cell stage, average cell size is about one-twentieth that of the zygote. Cell size then remains relatively constant until about the 1,000-cell stage, when it is further reduced by a half. Cell size continues to be reduced for a variable length of time in embroys of different species and may then remain constant during further growth until changes associated with histodifferentiation appear.
