Fava Bean Root Tip Mitosis

Fava beans have been an important crop in the Mediterranean area and Asia since the late Neolithic period, about 3,000 BC. During the Bronze Age, around 1,500 BC, the plant was distributed north of the Alps, where it represented one of the most important food plants until the beginning of modern times. Today, it has achieved a wide distribution throughout the temperate regions of the world and is one of the most important winter crops for human consumption in the Middle East.
