(1) These expression patterns are consistent with roles for invertases both in vegetative and sexual growth cycles.(2) In addition, the modular structure and less targeted vegetative morphology of plants enable them to have much greater morphological plasticity than could typical animals.(3) A summary of the dominance of the herbicide resistance trait, its fitness cost, and its effect on vegetative plant morphology for each of the eight mutant lines(4) The tree borders or vegetative buffer strips that are often planted around farm fields to filter out sediment and pesticides in runoff may also provide habitat.(5) The ability to grow plants devoid of secondary phenolics for several vegetative generations could yield important insights with regard to these, and other processes.(6) The imminent threat of Malcolm's death or long-term permanent paralysis and vegetative state from serious brain damage had immobilized and terrified them.(7) According to noted plant ecologist Andre Clewell, this vegetative mix is normally found on the coast - more than 15 miles away.(8) Older patients, particularly women, may have vegetative symptoms and cognitive dysfunction.(9) These sugars, normally associated with the seed desiccation process, apparently are not involved in the WD responses of lupin vegetative tissues.(10) The usual mode of reproduction in Hydra is vegetative , by forming asexual buds.(11) Winter chilling has two principal effects: it removes dormancy, so that when warm conditions return in the spring the plants have renewed vegetative vigour.(12) These are the potential meristems that are formed at the base of each leaf during vegetative growth.(13) Persistent vegetative state usually occurs after a severe head injury.(14) A vegetable is technically derived from any other part of the plant - the vegetative parts, including the roots, stem, and leaves.(15) Thymus loscosii might have a combined strategy of sexual and asexual reproduction, since vegetative propagation of stolons has been observed in the field.(16) A vegetative physiological parameter widely used to study plant tolerance to temperature is cell membrane thermostability.
