Transport in Plants

14 Feb

Like other living things, plants need a transport system to move water, nutrients and food around. Plants have two different types of ‘transport’ tissue. Xylem transports water and solutes from the roots to the leaves, Phloem transports organic molecules such as the products of photosynthesis from the leaves to the rest of the plant.Both of these systems are rows of cells that make continuous tubes running the full length of the plant.
