Sugar transport in plant

  1. 1. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTS The Pressure Flow Theory best eksplains themovement of sugars from the leaves to the roots
  2. 2. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTSThe leaf cells are called the “Source” because sugars are made there
  3. 3. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTSThe root cells are called the “Sink” because sugars are stored there
  4. 4. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTS Xylem Phloem “Source” Leaf Cell From the root system To the root system
  5. 5. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTS Xylem Phloem “Source” Leaf Cell From the root system To the root system
  6. 6. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTS Xylem Phloem “Source” Leaf CellFrom the root system To the root system
  7. 7. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTS Xylem Phloem Water molecules move up the Xylem vessels by tranpiration “Source” Leaf CellFrom the root system To the root system
  8. 8. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTS Xylem Phloem Water molecules move up the Xylem vessels by tranpiration “Source” Some water molecules move into the leaf cell by osmosis Leaf CellFrom the root system To the root system
  9. 9. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTS Xylem Phloem Water molecules move up the Xylem vessels by tranpiration “Source” Some water molecules move into the leaf cell by osmosis Sugar molecules created by the leaf cells are actively transported to the Phloem cell system Leaf CellFrom the root system To the root system
  10. 10. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTS Xylem Phloem Water molecules move up the Xylem vessels by tranpiration “Source” Some water molecules move into the leaf cell by osmosis Sugar molecules created by the leaf cells are actively transported to the Phloem cell system The hipertonic solution in the Phloem causes water to move from adjacent cells to the Phloem cell system Leaf CellFrom the root system To the root system
  11. 11. SUGAR TRANPORT IN PLANTS Xylem Phloem Water molecules move up the Xylem vessels by tranpiration “Source” Some water molecules move into the leaf cell by osmosis Sugar molecules created by the leaf cells are actively transported to the Phloem cell system The hipertonic solution in the Phloem causes water to move from adjacent cells to the Phloem cell system Sugar and water molecules move to the root system Leaf CellFrom the root system To the root system
