Germination

Post by MsJamaica » Tue Jan 31, 2006 2:35 am

Need help ASAP:

why does a seed increase in weight at the beginning of germination?
what is a root cap and its functions?

it absorbs water
it is a tough filament on the "cap" of the root that allows it to pierce down into the ground
Don't you have a textbook?

Read this: Seeds and Seed Germination

It provides you a complete information in paragraphs, figures, diagrams. If you don't like read paragraphs (like myself) you can 'read' the diagrams or figures.

Happy study ;)
