For instance, gibberellin promotes rapid internodal growth in deepwater rice by enhancing the activity of p34cdc2/CDC28-like histone H1 kinase in the intercalary meristem
of intemodes (Sauter et al.
This is a process similar to that which occurs in bamboo, which also have stems that lengthen primarily via intercalary meristem
growth (Judziewicz et al.
Hornworts have no specialized structures to aid spore dispersal but a unique intercalary meristem
results in relatively long period of spore production.
They are unique in that the partially dependent sporophyte has an intercalary meristem
at the base of the sporangium (Fig.
