Plants Qs

Post by kyw3 » Mon Oct 29, 2007 6:00 am

Gooday! I'm new here as you can see. The forum was very useful, but I have a few more Qs to ask. Any inputs will be appreciated :D

How does a plant can resist (tolerate or avoid) (a) overheating, (b) atmospheric and soil water deficits, (c) cold temperature injury, and (d) oxygen deficiency in the soil.

AND

The differences in the mechanisms of uptake of water and nutrients from soil by plant roots.

Hope you guys can give me a hand as I'm preparing for the coming up exam :? Any inputs will be appreciated, thanks in advance.

umm....you can find all the answers in one of these books:
1. Salisbury, F.B. & C.W. Ross. 1985. Plant Physiology. Wadsworth Pub.
2. Hopkins, W.G. 1998. Introduction to Plant Physiology. John Wiley & Sons Pub.
3. Taiz, L. & E. Zeiger. 1998. Plant Physiology. Sinauer Associates Inc.

Or, if you're not willing to open those books, you can search it in wikipedia :D
Q: Why are chemists great for solving problems?
