CHARACTERISTICS OF ROOT AND RHIZOME DEVELOPMENT IN STRAWBERRY VARIETY ELSANTA

J. Papp, P. Gracza
Four types of root organization are found: main root, lateral roots, hypocotyl roots and stolon-derived roots. Both external and inner differences are found among the different roots. The hypocotyl and stolon roots have secondary thickening. The cells of the pith tissue are transformed into transport elements and continuous transport tissue develops due to the activity of wavy cambium. The pericambium develops paracambium which forms periderma, and the primary bark abscises. The hypocotyl stem and the stolon with rosetting leaves become thicker due to the functioning of the cambium
