Chapter 35 - 35.5 - Concept Check - Page 778: 2


Plants have indeterminate growth, at least in many parts, unlike animals which generally show determinate growth. Plant cells get their ultimate fate more from their placement in the plant rather than from the cell lineage from which they are determined. Plants may have both juvenile and adult parts on the same plant while animal bodies generally go through the transition from vegetative growth to sexual reproduction for the entire animal.
