INFLUENCE OF WATER ON VEGE TATION. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 1 January 1914
INFLUENCE OF WATER ON VEGE TATION. To explain tilio influence of water on vegetation, it is necssarv to inquire into its manner of acting upon the various organs ofi plants. It cer. tainly passes into ^.leir substance through the roots. When tho roots of a withered, dry, and shrivelkd plant are placed in water, it recovers its freshness and vigor, and renews its vegetation. Colored liquor peroap tibley penetrates and rises up through tho vessels of the young and white radical fibres, to which it communicate color. Every tree or plant grows or carries out its vegetative functions with moro or less vigor in proportion as its roots are less or more furnished with moisture. This water, absorbed by tho roots, passes up tlirough the stems into all parts of the plant. It partly exudes from the leaves, whioh return to the atmosphere; and the more abundant the production of this transudation, in consequence of the heat and solvent power of the air, so much the greater is the absorption of wa...
