Roots respiration

Postby kumar985 » Fri Jun 28, 2013 3:42 pm

In plants through stomata exchange of gases occur and the stem respire through lenticels.Then how do roots respire.
How does exchange of gases takes place through roots?

I think that all of the gases needed for the normal function of cells in the root get there with diffusion trough the symplast from the cells that are above ground.
