Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In plant physiology, apical dominance is the phenomenon whereby the main central stem of the plant is dominant over (i.e., grows more strongly than) other side stems; on a branch the main stem of the branch is further dominant over its own side branchlets. The apical bud (or tip) produces the growth hormone auxin, which not only promotes cell division but also diffuses downwards and inhibits the development of lateral bud growth, which would otherwise compete with the apical tip for light and nutrients.show more
