Biology

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!

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

    http://biog-101-104.bio.cornell.edu/biog101_104/tutorials/cell_division/onion_review_fs.html
    http://staff.jccc.net/pdecell/celldivision/oniontip.html
    http://biology.northwestcollege.edu/biology/b1010lab/mitonion.htm

    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.
