How do root hair cells of a desert plant differ from tropical rainforest plants?
In desert plants the root hairs are more sensitive for water absorption and can absorb water at times from the moist air present in the porous soil. The root hairs of tropical rain forest plants absorb only capillary water present in the soil.

They are a useful part in the plan. They collect water from underground. Strangely though, as they are plant cells, they don't have any chloroplasts. That is because… they don't need them. Obviously, being roots, they are underground so couldn't collect light
desert plants and tropical plants have evolved in different ways such as: . desert plants sore water to survive whereas tropical plants have waxy leaves to drain the… water . tropical plants have huge leaves to help encourage pollinators and reach the sun light whereas desert plants have thorns and smaller leaves that are grey to reflect the sunlight.

Something okay get me
it is in the main root
They absorb minerals dissolved in water via diffusion from the soil. They increase surface area so a plant can absorb water and other minerals that are further away in the so…il. Plants in dry locations have deeper roots and more root hair cells to absorb water and nutrients from deep underground and if the roots were closer to the surface it would be easier for the water to be lost by evaporation.
they provide a good surface area to absorb water and minerals from the soil

yes, it is in the root, and is used for intake of vital minerals, water etc
its in the roots
Chlorophyll needs sunlight to convert water and soil nutrients into food, and the roots do not get any sunshine.
These cells are found near to the tip of the roots. Most water enters the root through them. Hope this answers your question. Good luck :)
because it helps it to absorb water from the soli.

How would you expect the root hair cells from a desert plant to differ from those of a tropical rain forest plant?
i have to ask my teacher
