Concept Summary Soil-what is it and what does it do. How the plant uses soil for nutrients and water. phosphorus (general processes) Review types of transport Compare transport features of tonoplast versus plasma membrane and how this affects the cytoplasm versus the vacuole Negatively charged soil particles influence the adsorption of mineral nutrients Size of soil particles influence the field capacity (how much water can be held) Soil pH has a major influence on soil: it affects weathering of rock (which provides minerals), growth of fungus and bacteria. Plants develop extensive root systems of high surface area to maximize water and mineral uptake and foster the microenvironment. Roots have different zones—cell division, elongation and regions for specific uptake of water or nutrients into the plant. Mycorhizae grow “into” plants and take carbohydrates from the plant and in return facilitate water and nutrient uptake to the plant. (~ 80% of angiosperms).
