Historical Examples of stolon
Stole, or Stolon, a trailing or reclined and rooting shoot, 40.The Elements of Botany
This stolon is divided into a series of lateral buds after the solitary asexual Salp has begun to lead an independent existence.
On this stolon there develop two entirely different types of buds, lateral buds, dorsal median buds.
The stolon, like that in Salpa, contains a prolongation of the branchial sack.
This stolon is simply the stalk by which each median bud was primitively attached to the stolon of the first asexual form.
