Quick Reference

A tropic response of a plant organ in which it takes up a position at right angles to the direction of the force of gravity. An example is the ivy-leaved toadflax (Cymbalaria muralis), which climbs vertical stone walls and has diageotropic fruits. The seeds are thus pushed laterally into crevices in the wall. See Tropisms.
