ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

A collection of experiments that cover a number of topics that help students learn and understand the physical and chemical processes that occur in plants. Such as, how water is taken up by plants; how cellulose facilitates passive transport; and the how changes in the concentrations of nutrients in soil, affects plant growth.
