*     Respiration in Plants


Plants have evolved themselves in such a manner that their every part may get air from atmosphere individually. Therefore, they do not need a respiratory system like animals. All parts of plants like roots, stem, and leaves perform respiration individually. Root has root hair for exchange of respiratory gasses. Root hairs lie in-between the soil particles, where air is trapped and receive air through the process of diffusion and send to the cells of root. Older plants have a pore called lenticels instead of root hair for exchanging respiratory gasses. Stem also have lenticels to get required air. Leaves have a pore on its lower surface called stomata through which exchange of respiratory gasses takes place.
