Question and answer
Explain different modes of nutrition in plants.
Plants can obtain their nutrients through different modes of nutrition, including: 1. Autotrophic Nutrition: This is the most common mode of nutrition in plants, where they produce their own food through the process of photosynthesis. They use sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water to produce glucose (sugar) as a source of energy. 2. Heterotrophic Nutrition: Some plants are heterotrophic, meaning they cannot produce their own food and rely on other sources for nutrition. This mode of nutrition is seen in parasites and saprotrophs, where they obtain their nutrients from other living or dead
organisms. 3. Mixotrophic Nutrition: Some plants can exhibit both autotrophic and heterotrophic modes of nutrition. For example, some plants can use photosynthesis to produce energy while also obtaining nutrients from the soil or other organisms. ]
