The root apical meristem gives rise to the root cap and the primary meristems

The root apical meristem produces all the cells that contribute to growth in the length of the root. Some of the daughter cells from the apical (tip) end of the root apical meristem con-

Essentials of Human Physiology

This ebook provides an introductory explanation of the workings of the human body, with an effort to draw connections between the body systems and explain their interdependencies. A framework for the book is homeostasis and how the body maintains balance within each system. This is intended as a first introduction to physiology for a college-level course.
