    Talking draw

    Plants do play an important role in the land phase of the cycle and are therefore part of the cycle. Trees and plants circulate and store water - they draw it up through their roots and return it to the atmosphere through their leaves during evapotranspiration. (Hi, everybody! What does "draw" mean in this context? I found a lot of defintions for "draw" in the dictionary, and I am not sure which one in better for this case. Could you have a look for me! Thanks a lot! )

    1...'land phase', not "land phrase".
    2...evapotranspiration (no "e" after the last "r")
    3...The part in blue should be separated from the sentence you are asking about. (even though you used a different color)

    Hi, 2006,

    Thanks for your help.

    Sorry, I made a lot of typos in the original paragraph, I should have checked it more than two times. It seems this condition always happens between you and me. Sorry!!

    Thank you, your opinion is helpful, I get it!

    Nice day!
