Roots Information

Roots are branched structures that anchor plants and enable them to absorb water and mineral salts. Most roots are underground, but some roots are aerial. A root consists of a three zones: a ramification zone that produces secondary roots, a feeder root zone that is covered with absorbent hairs, and a growth zone where new cells at the point extend and divide.
