One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The growth or turning of plant roots towards or away from moisture.
- ‘These analyses indicate that the application of new genetic screens for dissecting complex signaling phenomena such as hydrotropism is promising.’
- ‘Sensor cells for the presence of water are found in the root cap and studies indicated that calcium plays a role in the induction of root hydrotropism.’
- ‘Finally, decapitated roots don't seem to show hydrotropism, which hints at the root caps playing a major role in this phenomena.’
- ‘Such seedlings behaved identically to seedlings grown on uncovered filter paper and, hence, any possible effects of hydrotropism were eliminated.’
- ‘Our experiment proved that hydrotropism really does exist, and watering the plants differently affects root growth.’
