ok guys here lets have a brain teaser ... 1) do u know guys virus is unable to infect shoot tip :O 2) well in general we all think that mosquito is a parasite but in the reality mosquito is not consider as a parasite.. -_- 3)there is a plant name pomato in this plant above the soil tomato grows and below the soil potato grows or u say 2 in 1 ;) but these plants cannot survive much longer ... :( 4)do u know guys at the time of cultivation rice is given an aquatic medium but at the time of harvesting it is given dry medium .

    5) doo u know presence of tubifex in drinking water indicates the water is contaminated 6)breathing rate is zero when we swallow the food and its minimum when we sleep.. 7)do u know guys animals having true coelom always respire aerobically :)

    from the above fact i guess everyone is having a question in their mind.. ques1. virus can infect plant body but y not shoot tip ?? ques.2.mosquito sucks human blood and act as parasite then why it is not consider as parasite ?? ques3. why pomato plant cannot survive much longer if they are capable of producing offsprings either ?? que4.Is it necessary to provide aquatic medium to rice plant den my ans is yes but why try to find all these question's ans by urself :))

    Really great facts @heena.. I'd like to add a note on how virus normally spread throughout a plant. Actually, viruses move through the vascular system of the plant. Since, the shoot tip is found away from the vascular system there's less chance for it to be infected. Moreover, the shoot tips contain meristems. Meristems are groups of undifferentiated plant cells which can undergo divisions to form all types of tissues. Hence, there are high metabolic activities in the actively dividing meristems. Furthermore, there's a high endogenous auxin (a hormone) level in these regions. These conditions are the reasons why viruses can't affect shoot tips. This is an important fact in biotechnology as it is a way to produce virus-free plants. This can be done by meristem culture followed by micropropagation to get more virus-free plants. This is now a common biotechnological technique to produce virus-free plantlets to combat epidemics.

    ques.2.mosquito sucks human blood and act as parasite then why it is not consider as parasite ?? Mosquitoes are not considered as parasite because they do not live in or on another organism/ host .

    Well yes, it can also mean that they live in a close relationship with another organism and not upon or in it.

    @aceace pomato is formed by genitically cross breed so they are that much advanced that they cant bear the present atmosphere so they dont live dat much..

    @Miss_Deva we all know mosquito suck bloods (female mosquito name anopheles) they suck blood but not for themselves they suck blood to get heat for the young ones having inside in it.. so thats why mosquito is not consider as parasite

    well i hear it is once did genetically in lab but they dies as i said being more advance is also dangerous as much being primitive.. the only that can surivive which can acomodate itself acc. to the present environment

    Mhh, well it's pretty cool that they were able to make a plant like that but I think people would be happy just having serpent plants. Also don't each of those plants have different parasites? How would they deal with a plant having more then one different type of parasite? How would it effect the plant?

    good question :) well ofcourse it do but u knw being more advance they have resistance to those parasites so when these parasites tries to attack the plant then the plant remain unaffected

    That would definitely be a plus side for farmers. They wouldn't have to spend the money or time on spraying their plants. And wouldn't it make the produce healthier for you because they are not spraying chemicals on it?

    well for these plant it require much more advance atmoshphere wat thing in atmosphere i dunno correctly but the present atmosphere is v.much primitive for them but scientist are trying to make it better so that it can survive in present atmosphere so by that less fertilizers are used and varieties of crops can be grown :)

    They would definitely me something farmers would want to grow. They don't have to spray it, they would have more room to grow other plants, and they would have much healthier produce because the less use of chemicals. And with out advancement now a days, I'm sure they will be able to fix the atmosphere problem soon. And thanks for the brain teaser, I did not know allot of these things and it was very interesting to learn them. :)

    u knw azolla pinnata is an aquatic fern and it grows only in aquatic medium and in rice plant its leaf contain cavity in which symbiotic BGA-anabena azollae is present which do N2fixation with the help of azolla pinata leaf dats y it is kept in aquatic medium

    Very interesting. It's amazing how things you can learn about plants. Also question about the pomatoe, do you think that that the with all the advancements that they add to the plant that something in it might be harmful to humans or would effect them in anyway?

    well not sure but i think might be it can as u see both are in same plant so how the taste of the fruits will be different ... well only one thing i ll say nature made everything amazing like see humanbody so many process were going inside to protect ourself from outside affects isntd everything is amazing and i guess nature also decided something for pomatoes too like might these plant can take any adaptation so that they can be live long life as other plantss isntd?

    True, for me I just think that things should just be left the way nature tends it to be.If nature wanted a pomatoe plant, it would have created a pomatoe plant. It seems that every time we try to control the nature of things something bad always comes out of it. And we never know what the negative effects that they will have on our planet. But I guess we will never know until we actually use the plant in the environment. Maybe it'll have positive effects to it? Who knows.
