The article explains the anatomical features of a rosebush and the process of plant nutrient uptake. The main structures involved in the process of nutrient uptake are the roots, the xylem, and the stomata. There are various types of cells that can be found in the root. Epidermal cells are found on the root surface, and many of these are modified into root hairs. The xylem elements are bundles of pipes running up the plant stem.

    Root tips of intact willow (Salix dasyclados Wimm., Clone 81-090) plants were partially dried by exposure to ambient greenhouse air and then kept in water-vapor-saturated air for up to 3 days. The drying treatment increased abscisic acid (ABA) concentrations in both the root tips subjected to...

    We studied the effect of tree architecture on xylem anatomy in three Betula pendula Roth., three Picea abies (L.) H. Karst. and three Pinus sylvestris (L.) trees (mean age 35 years). First, the analysis of conduit anatomy in different tree parts showed that conduits tapered and their frequency...

    In all conventional agricultural systems based on the application of mineral or organic fertilisers, their impact is assessed depending on the final product (production of green matter or of seeds) and on its quality. At plant level, the impact of fertilisers differentiates depending on the...
