  • TRANSPORToIN THE XYLEM
    • WATER UPTAKE BY ROOTS
      • Water is drawn up from soil, through the roots & transported to leaves
        • this water is used in PHOTOSYNTHESIS & lost through STOMATA
        • large loss of water through stomata = TRANSPIRATION (must be replaced with water from soil)
        • region of greatest uptake is ROOT HAIR ZONE
