Which is the significance of the apical meristem?


Answer 1


The Apical meristem helps in the elongation of  the plant part where it is present.


  • Meristems or meristematic tissues are simple tissue composed of a group of similar actively dividing cells that can form new cells.
  • Meristems are found in the growing parts of the plant like tips of the root, shoot and branches.
  • The main function of meristematic tissue is to help in plant growth.
  • The cells of meristems are thin walled with a large centrally located nucleus.
  • The cytoplasm of these cells are dense with no vacuoles.

Depending on the position, meristems are of three types-

  • Apical meristem - It is present at the tip of the roots,stem and their branches. It produces growth in length of part where present.
  • Intercalary meristem- This meristem is located at the base of the internode. It helps in the elongation of the internodal region.
  • Lateral meristem- This is also known as cambuium, It occurs below the bark and in the vascular bundle of dicot stem and root. This meristem takes part in increasing the girth or width of he plant. This is also known as secondary growth.
Answer 2


B) It enables photosynthesis by facilitating primary growth of the plant.

This system relates to the structure and support of an organism. It is made of salts and proteins and found in vertebrate animals.


Answer: Skeletal System


The skeletal system of the body helps the body in their movement and support. The skeletal system of the body is made of salts and proteins.

The skeletal system is the basic structure which provides the body its structure. The main function of this system is to help in movement of the body like bending, walking, sitting, et cetera.

The main constituents of bone is salts of calcium and phosphate. This makes the bones so strong that it can handle weight of the whole body.
