Z. noltii. Proposed schematic growth model for the seagrass Z. noltii. Each step corresponds to an apical plastochrone interval (PI-A). Figures with roman numbers show the proposed model using the “phytomer” structure (see text for further information). Symbols used in the model are explained in the inset square
Figure 6 a–e shows the proposed growth model for Z.
noltii derived from plant growth monitoring, whereas the schematic
model obtained after successive additions of “phytomer” units is
illustrated in Fig. 6 i–v.
For simplicity, in the schematic model (Fig. 6 i–v) the
development of the older axillary shoots (i.e.
growth of new leaves and shoot primodum) is not illustrated, as it
is showed in Fig. 6 a–e (development of the lateral shoots).
If this shoot primordium is finally released, which can be
monitored by appearance of L-5, a new lateral shoot will arise
(Fig. 6 ). .
