    • Phloem
      • Transports Food (Sugars/Glucose)
    • Xylem
      • Transports Water (Mineral Ions)
    • Diffusion
      • Stomata
      • Flattened Shape

    • Roots
      • The role of the roots is to absorb water from the soil by osmosis and dissolve mineral ions from the soil by active transport.
      • Root Hair Cells Adaptions
        • the tube-like protrusion provides a greater surface area across which water and mineral ions can be exchanged
        • the tube-like protrusion provides a greater surface area across which water and mineral ions can be exchanged
        • the root hair cell contains lots of mitochondria, which release energy from glucose during respiration in order to provide the energy needed for active transport
