Water's Pathway through a plant

Post by thattokenjewishkid » Sat Jul 29, 2006 3:55 pm

How does water move through a flowering plant, from the roots to leaving the plant, and what mechanisms are involved?

How come you don't know the answer? Look into any plant physiology book. Look for xylem transport.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Mainly via the xylem. Mechanisms include: transpiration and capillary action.
