  Root - New World Encyclopedia
In vascular plants, the root is that organ of a plant body that typically lies below the surface of the soil (though not always) and whose major functions are to absorb water and inorganic nutrients and to anchor the plant body to the substrate.
The outside surface of a root is the epidermis, an outer single-layered group of cells covering the young tissues and leaves of a plant.
The deepest roots are generally found in deserts and temperate coniferous forests; the shallowest in tundra, boreal forest, and temperate grasslands.

 Inside a root A
The cell walls of the epidermal cell and its root hair are thin, thus not inhibiting the uptake of water and dissolved salts by the epidermal cell.
Root hairs greatly increase the area of the root which is exposed to the soil and through which water and dissolved nutrients can move into the root.
Root hair development is suppressed when some land plants are grown with their root suspended in water (hydroponically) and their growth is negatively influenced by high soil nutrient concentrations and high and low soil temperatures.

 root: root user, superuser, administrative user, root account
root, which is also referred to as the root user, the administrative user, the system administrator, the root account and the superuser, is the user name or account that has access to all commands and files on a Unix-like operating system.
One of these is the root directory, which is the top level directory on a system, i.e., the directory in which all other directories, including their subdirectories, and files reside.
The use of the term root for the all-powerful administrative user may have arisen from the fact that root is the only account having write permissions (i.e., permission to write data to files) in the root directory.
