Abstract

IN CURRENT USAGE, THE ADJECTIVE SYMPLASTIC HAS TWO DIFFERENT MEANINGS: in the term, symplastic growth, as defined by Priestley; and in discussions of transport through the symplast, as defined by M√ľnch. To avoid confusion, it is recommended that symplastic be reserved to characterize growth deformation, that symplasmic be used to refer to transport through the symplasm, and apoplasmic, to refer to the apoplasm.
