Secondary Growth 1. Defined as an increase in girth initiated by cell  divisions in  lateral meristems 2. Occurs in woody plants: all  gym nosperm s, 20%  of dicots and 5%  of  m onocots 3. Occurs in stem s and roots after they are  no longer growing in length

Secondary Growth 1. Lateral  or secondary  meristems  produce  secondary growth 1. Lateral m eristem s are cylinders rather  than clusters of undifferentiated stem   cells 2. Secondary growth is radial 3. New cells are added internally and  bidirectionally (toward centre and  surface)
