Question

Explain why a land plant may die if its roots remain waterlogged for along time?


Solution

ANSWER :-
A land plant may die if its roots remain water logged for a long time because too much water expels all the air from in-between the soil particles. Due to this, oxygen is not available to the roots for aerobic respiration. Under these conditions the roots will respire anaerobically producing alcohol which may kill the plant .
