Osmoregulation is the control of the water and electrolyte balance in the body. So in osmoregulation, there is maintenance of constant osmotic pressure in the fluids of an organism by the control of water and salt concentrations.
Lenticel is a raised pore or opening on the stems of woody plants that allows the interchange of gas between the atmosphere and the interior tissue. There are many such lenticels present on the stem.
