  • The mature embryo has a limited number of parts—
    frequently only a stem-like axis bearing one or more
    leaf-like appendages, the cotyledons (Fig. 1.8). Because
    of its location below the cotyledon(s), the stem-like axis
    is called hypocotyl. At its lower end (the root pole),
    the hypocotyl bears the incipient root, at its upper end
    (the shoot pole) the incipient shoot. The root may be
    represented by its meristem (apical meristem of the
    root) or by a primordial root, the radicle. Similarly the
    apical meristem of the shoot located at the shoot pole
    may or may not have initiated the development of a
    shoot. If a primordial shoot is present, it is called

Xylotomist Arthur Koehler of the United States Forest Service undertook a meticulous examination of the ladder and when the case finally came to trial four years later, offered the first botanical testimony ever to be heard and accepted in American courts.
