dc.description.abstract Hypothesis: We hypothesize that the hypocotyl length, leaves number and survival rate will be greater in plants with cut leaves than cut roots. Background: Plants rely on root absorption and leaf photosynthesis to grow. Roots not only absorb nutrition from soil but also function in nutrient storage and reproduction. We exposed Arabidopsis thaliana to three different treatments: cutting leaves, cutting roots and a control group. We observed their growth, morphology and the survival rate. en_US
