Terrestrial or land plants use sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water to make food. Plants have mineral requirements, just like animals, to maintain their tissues and cells. For terrestrial plants, these nutrients come from the soil. Terrestrial plants can be either woody or herbaceous. An example of a woody plant is a tree. Grasses and other plants with nonwoody stems are herbaceous plants. Terrestrial plants get their nutrients primarily from root absorption in the soil. Aquatic or wetland plants get their nutrients from root absorption in wetlands, oceans, rivers, or streams.
