1. Increased oxygen intake induces
microbial growth, enzymes break up
contaminants be process of
phytodegradation and are absorbed
with ground water into roots.
2. Particles are absorbed through cell
membranes of epidermis of root hair until they
reach the xylem.
3. Contaminant particles and water are pulled up
through the xylem from roots to shoots by force
of transpiration.
4. Stomata and guard cells regulate the
movement of water in and out of the cell
wall by the process of plasmolysis.
