Roots of a Flowering Plant - Biology Poster, 36x26
by American Educational Products

Roots are essential for flowering plants being able to carry out their life functions. Part of a specialized series of organs, they perform four general functions over the course of the plants lifetime. In addition to anchoring the plant firmly to the ground, the roots are responsible for the absorption of minerals and water from the soil, which provides the plant with the nutrients that it needs to grow, and survive. In some plants, they are also used as storage depots for extra food and nutrients, or as reproductive organs.

This poster features a series of 8 different photographs taken from slides. Slides 1-3 show off the basic structure of a mature plant root, while slides 4-6 explain the growth and development of the root. The final two slides, 7 and 8, show and explain how the root is equipped to absorb water and minerals for nutrition.
