Student Introduction: Plants are capable of rapidly adapting to changes in their environment. Plants can grow to replace damaged parts, bend in the direction of light cues, or elongate rapidly under good conditions. Plant hormones often play a role in plant development by affecting patterns of growth. Gibberellins, in particular, can elicit changes in growth, elongation, and flowering.
