What is plasmolysis?????

Expert Answer:

When a living plant cell loses water through osmosis, the contents of the cell shrink away from the cell wall. This process is called plasmolysis. Plasmolysis does not occur in dead cells. Plasmolysis is seen when plant cells loses water to a hypertonic environment.
