hormones and mutation


A mutation is an inheritable change in DNA. So I  agree with 
Andrew that hormones dont lead to mutations. THey can change a 
plant for a shorter or longer time just as food deprivation in a puppy 
leads to a small dog but it will not inherit to the offspring. There is 
no difference in DNA nor a mutation between the creeping and 
fruiting form of ivy either, despite looking "'permanently" very 
different
