Consequently, the objective of this study was to evaluate the vegetative growth of orthotropic and plagiotropic
branches of C.
Time course of plant height and number of primary plagiotropic
branches observed at different planting densities and irrigation regimes are shown, respectively, in Figure 2A and B.
As primary shoot length neared 10 to 15 cm, a gradual change in the orientation of growth from orthotropic (upright) to plagiotropic
At 120 days after transplantation, when the coffee plants had approximately 21 pairs of leaves and six plagiotropic
branches, the glyphosate was applied in a way that it would not reach the upper third of the coffee plants; a backpack sprayer pressurized with C[O.
branches grow horizontally and have a limited life span (IRITANI et al.

The unique aspect of species belonging to the family araucariaceae is that the orthotropic stems with their bud traces, and the plagiotropic
branches with their bud traces, remain permanently orthotropic and plagiotropic
, respectively, regardless of any orientation or treatment imposed on them .
In large treefall gaps beech [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE 8 OMITTED] saplings showed plagiotropic
growth with no clear leader so total extension growth was much greater than net vertical extension growth.
In some Piperaceous plants, such as Peperomia parnassifolia species, vegetative propagation has been reported to occur naturally by stolon, defined as fresh plagiotropic
stem aerial branches formed in the base of the plant.
Well grown leaves belonging to the third pair were collected from the plagiotropic
branches of the medium third of adult mother plants and then taken to the tissue culture laboratories where the experiments were conducted.
The total number of leaves and plagiotropic
branches were obtained by direct counting.
At 120 days after transplantation in September 2008 when the coffee plants had approximately 21 pairs of leaves and six plagiotropic
branches, glyphosate was applied in a way that it would not reach the upper third of the coffee plants using a pasteurized coastal pulverizer, which was pressurized with C[O.
