  • Transport system in plants
    • flowering plants have separate transport systems
    • XYLEM tissues transport water and mineral ions from the roots to the stem, leaves and flowers
      • The movement of water from the roots through the xylem and out of the leaves is called the transpiration stream
    • PHLOEM tissue carries dissolved sugars from the leaves to the rest of the plants, including the growing region and the storage organs
