What are secondary roots? In origin how secondary roots differentiate from shoots?

11 months ago

Secondary roots are ramifications of the primary (main) root. The secondary roots emerge from the pericycle, inner tissue of the root. The shoots originate from the lateral buds of the stem. Therefore the origin of the secondary roots is endogenous and the origin of the shoots is exogenous.
