Detailed studies on the initiation and development of axillary buds in
Works so far done on this problem in Ferns, Monocotyledons and Dicotyledons have been briefly reviewed.
In Ferns an axillary bud is initiated in the
In the shoot apices of Ferns, Monocotyledons and Dicotyledons leaf primordia are laid down first and buds are initiated in their axils later. A year may elapse between the laying down of the axillant leaves and formation of buds in their axils as reported in the winter buds of
Bud trace originates in the bud primordium and then differentiates backwards into the
As the buds normally originate in the axils of leaves which are removed some distance from the apex and which are growing vigorously or unfolding, it is suggested that their initiation is due to some physiological processes than to any specific qualities inherent in the apical meristem.
