Plant Transport
How does water get from
the roots of a tree to its
top?
Plants lack the muscle
tissue and circulatory
system found in animals,
but still have to pump fluid
throughout the plants body

Plant Transport
Water first enters the roots and then moves to
the xylem, the innermost vascular tissue
Plants need water
As a starting product for photosynthesis
As a solvent to dissolve chemicals
For support
To ‘pay’ for water lost by transpiration
