Describe the cortex region of dicot root.


#2

The cortex consists of several layers of thin-walled parenchyma cells. Intercellular spaces are small but abundant. The cortical cells can be rounded, oval or angular. They store food. The major function of the cortex in the root hair zone is conduction of water and minerals from epiblema to the interior of the root.
