Goetghebeur (1986) proposed the Cyperus-type as a specialised Helothrix-type, with a lateral displacement of the root cap caused by the strong outgrowth of the coleoptile
, which results in a basal position of the first primordial leaf (Fig.

growth was stimulated by diffractaic (1) and hypostictic (2) acids, but inhibited by protocetraric (3), salazinic (4), secalonic (5), and usnic (6) acids and atranorin (7).

is regarded either as the second leaf or as part of the cotyledon itself." Of course we cannot assign to the author of this one book any culpability for confusion in the botanical literature.
Darwin's experiments with the oat coleoptile
showed that cells on the dark side of the stem elongate more rapidly than those on the light side.
