Osmosis inwards, ie towards the solution (also enˈdosmose /-mōs/)
n pl -mo·ses : passage (as of a surface-active substance) through a membrane from a region of lower to a region of higher concentration —compare EXOSMOSIS — end·os·mot·ic adj — end·os·mot·i·cal·ly adv
- This gradient of water potential causes endosmosis.
- The endosmosis of water continues till the water potential both in the root and soil becomes equal.
- Phosphates from bird faeces ( guano ) are mainly concentrated in the beach rocks by the way of exchange-endosmosis.
- If solute concentration is high and water potential is low in the root cells, water can enter from soil to root cells through endosmosis.
