Bundled roots

Bundled roots

In botany, with the term of bundled (or collated), we mean when the roots of a radical apparatus are numerous and all roughly of equal development.
More precisely, for bundles we mean the lateral roots that develop more or less numerous and equivalent in a bundle, equaling and sometimes overcoming the main root, which has ceased to grow,

(they lack the secondary structure), becoming all the main roots with the possibility of forming lateral roots.
Typical examples of plants in which this phenomenon occurs are: Lilium, Ranunculus, Avena, Tulipa, etc.
