Plant Tissues and Organs...


Plant organs...

What organs do plants have?...

  • Stems - support the plant, and assist in the transport of water and nutrients between the roots and the leaves.
  • Roots - absorb the water and mineral ions for the plant, and hold the plant in place.
  • Leaves - the main site of photosynthesis in a plant.

What tissues do plants have?...

  • Mesophyll tissue - this is where most of the photosynthesis in a plant occurs.
  • Xylem and phloem - these tissues transport things like water, mineral ions and sucrose around the plant.
  • Epidermal tissue - this covers the whole plant.
