Photoperiodism vs Vernalization
Similarities and Differences between Photoperiodism and Vernalization in Plants

The Photoperiodism is defined as the developmental responses of plants to the relative lengths of light and dark periods. It is a physiological reaction of plants to the length of day or night time. Plants sense the seasons by sensing the variations in photoperiods (length of day and night times in a day). The most important response of photoperiodism in plants is the induction of flowering. The Vernalization is a process of induction of flowering in plants by exposing them to prolonged cold temperature. The present post discusses the Similarities and Differences between Photoperiodism and Vernalization in Plants with a Comparison Table.

Similarities between Photoperiodism and Vernalization

Ø  Both Photoperiodism and Vernalization are physiological process in plants.

Ø  Both influence the flowering in plants.

Ø  Both processes are mediated through plant hormones.

Ø  Both can occur naturally or artificially.

Ø  Both have agricultural applications.

Similarities and Difference between Simple and Compound Epithelial Tissue


Simple vs Compound Epithelial Tissue

Simple Epithelium vs Compound Epithelium
(Similarities and Difference between Simple and Compound Epithelial Tissues)

Epithelial tissue is a tissue system in animals that forms the outer layer of body surfaces, the linings of the alimentary canal and the walls of hollow structures. It covers the internal or external surfaces of the body. In the previous post, we have discussed the Structure, Classification and Functions of Epithelial Tissues. Based on the number of cell-layers, the epithelial tissues are classified into Simple Epithelial Tissue and Compound (Stratified) Epithelial Tissue. The present post discusses the Similarities and Differences between Simple and Compound Epithelial Tissues in animals.

Physiological Effects of Auxins vs Gibberellins
(Difference between the Physiological Effects of Auxins and Gibberellins in Plants)

Auxins and Gibberellins are two major classes of plant hormones. Both hormones significantly influence the growth and various developmental processes in plants such as organogenesis, root initiation, sex expression, flowering etc. The physiological responses of Auxins and Gibberellins show many differences. The present post discusses the difference between the physiological effects of Auxins and Gibberellins in plants with a comparison table.
