    Transport in plants Transport in plants Presentation Transcript

    • Transport in Plants
    • Body is too large.
      Diffusion from the external environment is not an option
      Why do large organisms need a transport system?
    • Most plants have developed complex vascular systems that move nutrients and water throughout the plant body through "tubes" of conductive cells.
      The vascular tissues of these plants are called xylem and phloem.
      Transport Systems
    • The xylem of vascular plants consists of dead cells placed end to end that form tunnels through which water and minerals move upward from the roots (where they are taken in) to the rest of the plant.
      Xylem
    • Phloem, which is made up of living cells, carries the products of photosynthesis (organic nutrients) from the leaves to the other parts.
      Phloem
    • Absorption of Water
    • Transpiration
      Transpiration is the evaporation of water into the atmosphere from the leaves and stems of plants.
    • Stomata
    • Stomata
    • Transpirational pull is the main force behind the movement of water through the xylem.
      Transpirational Pull
    • Capillarity
    • Xylem in root
      Soil particles
      Leaves
      Root hair cells
      Xylem in stem
      Transpiration
      Use the following words to prepare a flow chart showing water transport in plants
    • Why organisms need a transport system
      Xylem
      Phloem
      Transpiration
      Transpirational pull
      Capillarity
      Stomata
      Guard Cells
      Osmosis
      What we learned

    • Viewing Xylem 13.1
      Looking at root hairs 13.2
      Demonstrate transpiration 13.3
      Comparing water loss from each side of leaf 13.4
      Stomata and water loss 13.5
      Measuring the rate of water uptake 13.6
      Experiments related to transport in plants
    • Osmosis
      Transpiration
      Diffusion
      What is the name of the process by which water travels up through a plant from the roots to the leaves?
    • Glucose
      Carbon dioxide
      Minerals
      What substances, necessary for growth, do plants take in along with water?
    • Diffusion
      Osmosis
      Active absorption
      Through which method does water enter plant cells?
    • They are similar to human hair
      They increase surface area
      They produce toxic products
      What is special about root hair cells?
    • Xylem vessels carry water from the leaves to the roots
      Xylem vessels carry water from the roots to the leaves
      Xylem vessels carry sugar from the roots to the leaves
      Which of the following statements is true of xylem?
    • Phloem tubes carry food from the leaves to the storage organs
      Phloem tubes carry nitrates from the leaves to the roots
      Phloem tubes carry food from the roots to the leaves
      Which of the following statements is true of phloem tubes?
    • Water travels up through plants, from the roots to the leaves, through their __________ vessels. It is pulled up the plant by two forces ________ and _________. The transpiration stream ends with water ________ from the leaves through the ________.
      (Phloem, Osmosis, Xylem, Evaporating, Suction pressure, stomata, Water, Capillarity)
