Name three types of modified plant structures essential for storage of water and nutrients and provide one axample of each type?
The three plant structures for storing water are stems, leaves and roots. Modified plant structures are called tubers.
An example of a modified plant structure for a stem is a potato. We call a potato a stem tuber. The stem has been exaggerated to allow for holding more nutrients.
A root tuber is very similar to a stem tuber. An example of a root tuber is a sweet potato. It is a storage root. A bulb is also a modified stem.
A tendril is an example of a modified stem. Tendrils are used by plants to climb. For example, a plant may affix itself to a building or tree and climb it.
