In botany, plant roots[?] are the portion of a plant which is below the level of the soil. Roots have a tendency to grow downward in order to reach more nutrients and water which the plant needs to survive.

In mathematics, a root of a function f is an element x in the codomain of f such that f(x)=0. For example, 3 is a root of f(x)=x^{2}6x+9. A substantial amount of mathematics was developed in order to find roots of various functions, especially polynomials. For example, the roots of a quadratic are given by the quadratic formula, and the Fundamental theorem of algebra states that every polynomial of degree n has n complex roots. See also: square root.
In computer science, the root of a tree structure is the starting node.
