I'm writing a paper on wrinkling of plant leaves. For biological and physical background information, I would like to know whether leaves grow by adding cells at the edge, at the center or in a completely different way. Since I need to confirm any information I get, please do not write opinions or guesses. It would be great if someone could find a reliable source with link since all my researches didn't lead to a good answer to this question. Thanks in advance!
Plant leaves develop from leaf primordium or meristem tissue (this tissue has special properties that allow it to continue dividing to make more more cells, i.e. stem cells - not stem cells like cells in the stem but the technical term 'stem cells). Because of the hormone balances to maintain this division property the meristem tissue will remain close to the stem or branch of the plant at the base of the leaf whilst the new cells added to the leaf slowly move outwards. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1369526616300929
