Shootward and rootward: Peak terminology for plant polarity. Trends Plant Sci. 2010 Sep 15. [Epub ahead of print] Note: The authors propose now using the terms "shootward" and "rootward" to designate plant polarity, that is, towards the shoot apex and root apex, respectively. These terms would replace the terms "apical/acropetal" and "basal/basipetal", whose usage was organ dependent and could be confusing, depending on whether anatomical or cellular usage was being referred to.
