is a condition that results when the plant takes up more water
through the roots than the leaves can give off in the form of
water vapor through the stomates. The excess water accumulates in
the leaf cells, causing them to enlarge and often burst. As the
cells become engorged with water, swellings may appear on the
upper or lower surface of the leaf. The afflicted cells often
have a dark green bacterial-like water-soaked appearance
surrounding these swollen cells.
formerly known as dropsy or hydropsy, is an abnormal accumulation
of fluid in the interstitium, which are locations beneath the
skin or in one or more cavities of the body. It is clinically
shown as swelling. Generally, the amount of interstitial fluid is
determined by the balance of fluid homeostasis, and increased
secretion of fluid into the interstitium or impaired removal of
this fluid may cause edema.
