Answer the following question.
Define and or explain the term:
- During the absorption of water, the continuous flow of water develops hydrostatic pressure in living cells of the root. This is called root pressure.
- Root pressure causes water to flow from pericycle into the xylem. It also causes upward conduction of water against gravity.
- A manometer is used to measure the root pressure.
Concept: Path of Water Across the Root
