time.

Leaves are adapted to maximise the amount of carbon dioxide that gets to their…

Active transport occurs against the concentration gradient, whereas diffusion doesn't.
Active transport needs energy from RESPIRATION.
Phloem tubes transport food substances, made in the leaves to growing regions and storage organs
