explain ascent of sap
The transportation of water and minerals in the plant is called ascent of sap.
the upward movement of water and minerals from roots to all parts of the plant.
It is fascinating to understand how water moves in plants to such great heights such as 400 ft. or more. For example, trees like Sequoia semipervians are as tall as 300 to 400 ft. They are the 4000 yrs old and giants among the tree plants. These plants transport water through their stem must be incredible.
