Root hairs form an intimate contact with the soil particles, and enormously increase the root's absorbing surface area. The Cress family (Cruciferae) includes about 2,000 species of annual and perennial herbs. They are found in many kinds of habitats and are mainly northern temperate. The family includes greatly important food crops including the turnip, cabbage, cauliflower, radish, watercress and mustard. Magnification: x200 at 5x7cm size.
