Students follow movement of water through a plant from the soil to the atmosphere. They calculate water potential at each of 5 locations in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. Students will: 1) predict the value and direction of the solute potential and pressure potiential in different parts of a plant, given information about... More

Buen material, ideal seria simular condiciones locales para acotar los calculos. de potencial hidrico

Permite vizualizar y ejemplificar el continuo suelo-planta atmosfera, puesto que trabaja a nivel de celulas radicales, xilema celulas del mesofilo entre otros

Navegacion amigable y de faáil uso 

Puede ser utilizado en aula o como apoyo complementario en asignaturas como Fisiologia Vegetal

Buen trabajo, pero está muy acotado a una zona geográfica de Estados Unidos.

Excelente como ejercicio para estudiantes iniciales de fisiología vegetal y/o suelos.

Es de muy fácil uso y navegación.

En cuanto a la calidad de la información es relevante.

Material bueno, pero es bueno que se identifique el nombre  en la animación lo que se está mostrando, idealmente traducir al español.

Es importante que sea más específico los procesos fisiológicos de las plantas para que sean entendidos de forma más efectiva, para lograr aprendizajes y entendimiento de los usuarios.


Technical Remarks:

Los procesos de la absorción de la savia bruta, deben ser especificados en la animación de manera de ser más entendida por las personas que observan este material.
