Arvind sometimes go for late ecening walk with his father who has a background of biology. While walking in the colony park, he observed many plants having colour flowers. He also saw gew plants having white flowers. Most of these flowers emit pleasant fragrance (=aroma). Out of curiousity, Arvind asked his father the following questions:
(i) Why do plants have variously coloured flower? Give two reasons.
(ii) Why do certain flowers emit frangrance? How does frangrance of flowers spread in the environment?
(iii) Which scientific phenomenon is obvolved when (a) frangrance spreads in the house at the time of cooking of food in the kitchen; (b) exchange of gases occurs across the respiratory surface.Dr. P.S. Verma & Dr. V.K. Agarwal - Biology
