  • It is well known that plant tissues which have been thoroughly dried readily absorb atmospheric moisture. This process has been termed rehydration. In recent years it has been established that living plant tissues bind a portion of the water associated with their cell constituents. It is considered that this bound water possesses properties differing from those of the remaining water in the cells. It has been proposed that this water-binding capacity of plant tissues is of importance in such… CONTINUE READING
