 A. Water Relations of CellsB. Water Relations of the Whole Plant
 A. Water Relations of Cells
Objective: To provide the basis for understanding watermovement within the plant, and between plant and itsenvironment.
 A review of the unique physical and chemical properties of water which make it particularly suitable for life;
Physical processes that underlie water movement in plants,including diffusion, osmosis, and bulk flow as mechanisms for water movement; and
 The chemical potential of water and the concept of waterpotential.
B. Water Relations of the Whole Plant
General Objective:
 To examine the phenomena of transpiration and watermovement through plants.
Specific Objectives/ Topics to be addressed:
 The process of transpiration and the role of vapor pressure differencesin directing the exchange of water between leaves and the atmosphere.
 The role of environmental factors, in particular temperature andhumidity, in regulating the rate of transpirational water loss.
 The anatomy of the water-conducting system in plants and how plantsare able to maintain standing columns of water to the height of thetallest tress.
 Water in the soil and how water is taken up by roots to meet thedemands of water loss at the other end.
