Why Root Pressure Is Absent In Gymnosperms?


Root pressure in the root is the hydrostatic pressure in the movement of water up in the vascular tissue – xylem. Gymnosperms typically are tall plants. The root pressure is not a very feasible mechanism in them for the transportation of water all the way up to those heights. Also, in most of the gymnosperms, the vessels are lacking in the xylem hence, there is no root pressure either.
