What causes a green plant exposed to the light on only one side, to bend toward the

source of light as it grows?

1. Green plants need light to perform photosynthesis

2. Green plants seek light because they are phototropic

3. Light stimulates plant cells on the lighted side to grow faster

4. Auxin accumulates on the shaded side, stimulating greater cell elongation there

Dr. F Went noted that if coleoptile tips were removed and placed on agar for one hour, the agar would produce a bending when placed on one side of freshly cut coleoptile stumps. Of what significance is this experiment?

1. It made possible the isolation and exact identification of auxin.

2. It is the basis for quantitative determination of small amounts of growth-promoting substances

3. It demonstrated polar movement of auxins

4. It supports the hypothesis that IAA is auxin
