Electron transport system or Oxidative Phosphorylation in Plants

Electron transport system or Oxidative phosphorylation: Oxidative phosphorylation is conceptually simple and mechanistically complex. It is seen in the light reaction of photosynthesis that the......

What is Chemosynthesis?

Chemosynthesis: Few algae and bacteria can prepare carbohydrate without sunlight. Thus, this process of production of carbohydrate without the use of sun light is said......

What is Plasmolysis?

Plasmolysis may be defined as the shrinkage of all the protoplasm away from its cellulose wall when placed in a hypertonic solution. Such cell are......

Necessities of Water in Plant Body

Protoplasm is the physical basis of life and about 90% of the protoplasm is occupied by water. The activity of protoplasm is stopped due to......

Significance Imbibitions in Plant Life

Significance Imbibitions in Plant Life Imbibitions: The process how a colloidal substance (completely or partially dried) absorbs water is said to be imbibitions. Explanation: Imbibition......

Define Diffusion with its different Regulating Factors

Diffusion: At a normal temperature and pressure, when molecules of any substance of it’s area of higher concentration diffuse to the area of lower concentration......

Importance of the Osmosis is Plant Life

Importance of the osmosis is Plant Life Water absorption: Plants absorb water from soil through osmosis. Diffusion: Diffusion of water from one cell to another......

Osmosis: Definition and Classification

Osmosis: Osmosis is thought to be a special type of diffusion and may be defined as the diffusion of solvent (e.g. water) through a differentially,......

Difference between Diffusion and Osmosis

Difference between Diffusion and Osmosis: Diffusion Diffusion is a spontaneous movement of particles from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration. The molecules......

Passive Absorption of Water in Plants from Soil

Passive Absorption of water in plants from soil: The organ by which plant Absorbs water: Plant absorbs water by root hair The water which plant......

Active Absorption of Water in Plants from Soil

Active absorption: Metabolic energy is required in this process. In fact, the absorption in this process takes place by osmosis. Aikens (1916) and Priestly (1921)......

How Plants Absorb Mineral Salts?

Plants can only absorb soluble minerals. They absorb minerals dissolved in solution from the soil through their root hair cells. Organs through which plants absorb......

Ascent of Sap from Root to Leaf

Ascent of Sap from Root to Leaf Ascent of sap: Water together with dissolved mineral salts is called cell sap or sap. This solvent absorbed......

Describe Transpiration of Plants with Types

Transpiration: The physiological process by which the excess water is lost from the living tissues of plants in the form of vapor is called transpiration.......

Importance of Transpiration in Plants

Importance of transpiration in plants: Transpiration is an important biochemical process, through it has some harmful rules; it is mainly an essential method. It creates......
