I had to observe slides of onion root tip to study plant mitosis. And the question I have to answer asks,if your observations had not been restricted to the area of the root tip that is actively dividing, how would your results have been different?

I believe majority of cells would have stayed in interphase, but I am not too sure. Please help me out!

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "*'onion root tip' mitosis*" to get these possible sources:

From what little I have read, I would tend to agree with you. In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
