- Animals grow for a limited period of time after which their growth ceases and they ultimately die.
- Plant growth is unique because plants retain their capacity for unlimited growth throughout their life.
- This ability of plants is due to the presence of meristematic tissue at certain locations in their body.
- The cells of such meristems have the capacity to divide and self-perpetuate.
