    • Abstract


      Vascular orientation of one week old seedling ofBrassica campestris Linn. has been studied. The studies rule out the possibility of splitting and torsion of xylem; instead there is a gradual inward shifting of the xylem differentiation pole. Unlike the existing reports,Brassica campestris Linn., in spite of having epigeal germination, shows the continuity of primary vasculature of root-hypocotyl-cotyledon in the first and second foliar node. The cotyledonary node is unilacunar two trace which supports Bailey’s suggestion of unilacunar double trace as a basic type.
