Withering: definition and meaning


Wilting occurs in plants when there is a temporary loss of water by the tissues due to, for example, excessive transpiration (as can happen on a too hot and windy summer day with little water in the ground) or salty soil (the where excessive salt concentration prevents the roots from absorbing the water present in the soil) or frozen soil, just to give a few examples.The plant either disperses too much water or is unable to absorb it. In all cases there is a temporary loss of turgor from the tissues, a wilting, which however is not necessarily disastrous because if the water is replenished in time, the plant regains its turgidity and resumes its normal activity.
