  • Specialised Cells
    • Sperm cells
      • Found in testes of male animals.
      • They have a flagellum, mid piece and head.
      • Contains DNA to produce offspring.
      • Has flagellum for movement of sperm.
    • Root hair cell
      • Found in the outside layer of plant roots.
      • They absorb water and nutrients from the soil.
      • Lots of mitochondria to absorb minerals.
    • Phloem
      • Found in plants.
      • They carry sugar from the leaves to the rest of the plant.
      • They consist of columns of living cells.
    • Nerve cell
  • Xylem cells
    • Made of dead cells.
    • Found in roots, stems and leaves of vascular plants.
    • They are made of vessels that are connected end to end fro maximum speed to move water.
