Tunica-Corpus Theory: Schmidt in 1924 postulated tunica- corpus theory on the basis of studies of shoot apices of angiosperm. This theory is concerned with planes of cell division in the apex. In contrast to apical cell theory and histogen theory tunica-corpus theory is applicable only to shoot apex and not to root.
Root cap derived from
A fourth histogen, the calyptrogen, produces the root cap. The histogens have been thought to lie in linear order in the apex, with the initial cells of the vascular system toward the older part of the root, and those of the cap toward the tip.
Roots developed from parts of the plant other than radicle are called
Some roots, called adventitious roots, arise from an organ other than the root—usually a stem, sometimes a leaf. They are especially numerous on underground stems, such as rhizomes, corms, and tubers, and make it possible to vegetatively propagate many plants from stem or leaf cuttings.

In an inflorescence where flowers are borne laterally in an acropetal succession, the position of the youngest floral bud shall be
In racemose type of inflorescences the main axis continues to grow, the flowers are borne laterally in an acropetal succession, i.e. youngest flower is present at apex and oldest flower is present at the base. In racemose, inflorescence the growth of floral axis is unlimited or indefinite.
In cymose type of inflorescence the main axis terminates in a flower, hence is limited in growth. The flowers are borne in a basipetal. order, i.e. youngest flower is present at the base and oldest flower is present at the apex. In cymose inflorescence oldest flower remains in center and youngest towards the periphery. This type of arrangement is called centrifugal.

In excitable cells, re-polarization is closely associated with one of the following events
After depolarisation axon membrane causes potassium gates to open, within a fraction of secs, K+ diffuses outside the membrane and restores the resting potential of the membrane at the site of excitation & the nerve fibre becomes once more responsive to further stimulation.
All are None law (principle) states that
The all-or-none law is the principle that the strength by which a nerve or muscle fibre responds to a stimulus is independent of the strength of the stimulus. If that stimulus exceeds the threshold potential, the nerve or muscle fibre will give a complete response; otherwise, there is no response.
When we move from light to to dark, we fail to see for some time but soon the visibility becomes normal. It is
Our eyes cannot see everything clearly when we enter a dark room from a bright light. The reason for this is that in bright light the size of pupil of our eye is small. When we enter the dark room, due to small size of pupil, very little light enters our eyes. But after some time, the pupil expands and we become able to see things as more light enter our eyes now. so there is adaptation of pupil according to light intensity
