imbibition: some kind of step in the development of cotyledons? biologists, please help!



I don't see any relationship to the science of "Physics". This is Biology - that is obvious. So I removed the physics category. Steve Quinn (formerly Ti-30X) (talk) 05:35, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Maybe not so "obvious" after all - see for instance Technicolor:
  • Technicolor IB printing ("IB" abbreviates "imbibition", a dye-transfer operation): a process for making color motion picture prints that allows the use of dyes which are more stable and permanent than those created in chromogenic color prints.
  1. The act of imbibing.
  2. Chemistry Absorption of fluid by a solid or colloid that results in swelling.
  1. To drink.
  2. To absorb or take in as if by drinking: "The whole body . . . imbibes delight through every pore" (Henry David Thoreau).
  3. To receive and absorb into the mind: "Gladstone had . . . imbibed a strong prejudice against Americans" (Philip Magnus).
  4. Obsolete To permeate; saturate.
Middle English embiben, to soak up, saturate, from Latin imbibere, to drink in, imbibe
