The root cap needs to be continually supplied with new cells by the root apical meristem (RAM) because: Select one: a. the root cap needs to recruit new cells from the RAM to develop lateral root hairs. b. the population of root cap cells needs to be replenished from the RAM as older root cap cells differentiate into epidermal, cortex, and vascular tissues. c. root cap cells are damaged or become separated as elongation in the tissue produced by the RAM forces it through the soil. d. the root cap must add cells to cover the additional surface area created by the growing root tip. truck driver is transporting a load of unripened bananas in an air-tight vehicle and decides to stop and eat an apple after checking on his cargo. He opens the back of his truck and, while walking around the unripened bananas, he decides the apple is overripe and drops it. When the bananas are finally delivered days later, he is surprised to find that all of his bananas have ripened. Why has this occurred? Select one: a. Opening the back of the truck stimulated the production of gibberellic acid. b. Exposure of the bananas to the apple (and its ethylene) instigated their ripening. c. Opening the back of the truck exposed the bananas to light of blue wavelengths. d. Opening the back of the truck exposed the bananas to CO, which accelerated their ripening.
