Plants absorb water from the soil. How does this water reach to the top of the tree? Explain in detail.
Asked by pdcavita | 1st Dec, 2017, 09:57: PM
Vascular bundles play a vital role in transport and absorption of water. Xylem transports water from the roots to the all the parts of plant whereas phloem transports the food which is prepared in the leaves by the process photosynthesis from the leaves to all parts of body and by this xylem the water reaches to the top of the trees too. But this pressure is not enough to reach to the top of the plant. So, during transpiration water loses from the leaves which creates a low pressure of water which in turn pulls the water upward.

- Dear Sir/Madam Please explain me absorption of minerals by root hair and also absorption of water separatrely Thanks Regards
- Hello Sir/Madam Pls tell me whether the definition of translocation also includes ammino acids and hormones apart from food synthesized during photosynthesis, though i know sieve tubes carry ammino acids and hormones too. Thanks Regards
