GASEOUS EXCHANGE IN PLANTS

GASEOUS EXCHANGE IN PLANTS Oxygen is required by plants for the production of energy for cellular activities. Carbon (IV) oxide is required as a raw material for the synthesis of complex organic substances. Oxygen and carbon (IV) oxide are obtained from the atmosphere in the case of terrestrial plants and from the surrounding water in
