- Zone of elongation
- types of seed dispersal
- Growth inhibiting hormone
- a root cells elongate, sometimes to more than ten times their original length; it is cell elongation that pushes the root tip farther into the soil; the cells lengthen, rather than expand equally in all directions, because of the circular arrangement of cellulose fibers in parallel bands in their cell walls. The cells elongate by taking up water and the cellulose fibers separate
- b The nonliving portion of a plants vascular system that provides support and conveys xylem sap from the roots to the rest of the plant. Xylem is made up of vessel elements and/or tracheids, water-conducting cells. Primary xylem is derived from the procambium. Secondary xylem is derived from the vascular cambium in plants exhibiting secondary growth. DEAD CELLS MOVES WATER AND MINERALS UP FROM THE ROOTS.

- An outgrowth of an epidermal cell on a root, which increases the root's absorptive surface area.
- A sac in which pollen grains develop, located at the tip of a flower's stamen
- - osmotic pressure caused by the buildup of solutes in the xylem of roots; root xylem up solutes, down water, therefore water in soil diffuses into root; pressure in root xylem forces water up through stem xylem
