organs of plants - is part of the body with a certain structure and are intended to perform certain functions.Vegetative organs, and these are the roots and shoots to form the body of the plant, keep it in the soil and keep it running - nutrition and metabolism.

root



root - is the axial organ plant, located usually under the ground.It is capable of unlimited growth, serves to secure the plants in the soil, and also to absorb water with dissolved mineral substances necessary for living organism, and carrying it to the stems and leaves.Also, the root may be the storage of nutrients, which is not currently required.The root is able to interact with the roots of other plants, fungi mycelium and microorganisms living in the soil, benefiting from such a community.

There are main, lateral and adventitiou
s roots, length and intensity of which varies depending on the type of plant, its origin and the conditions for its growth.Sometimes the roots can and does mutate, forming the roots and root tubers with a supply of nutrients.Some roots have not only the basic function of power and securing the plant, but also allow the plant to cling to being nearby objects, or by being handed down to the outside, are involved in breathing.

Escape Escape



plant consists of a stem and leaves arranged on it.The stem is the mechanical axis of the plant.Also, through transport and storage of committed nutrients.The green part of the stem along with the leaves carry out photosynthesis.Some modifications stems (eg spines) are used to protect plants.

main function of leaves is photosynthesis.In the cells of the body plant chlorophyll pigment is able to trap the sunlight and under the action of the water to form carbon dioxide and sugar glucose.This substance is a versatile source of energy and is involved in many biological processes.Also, the leaves are stomata, through which plants breathe, like animals, consuming oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide.Authority participates in the removal of excess liquid.Leaves, as part of the stem can be modified into spines, and carnivorous plants - form a trap to catch insects and small animals.
