Dicotyledonous Plants
Plants with two seeds leaves and a braching patterns of veins in the leaf
1 of 19
Meristem
A layer of dividing cells, here it is called the pericycle
2 of 19
Phloem
Transports dissolved assimilates
3 of 19
Vascular Tissue
Consists of cell specialised for transporting fluids by mass flow
4 of 19
Xylem
Transports water and minerals
5 of 19
Companion Cells
The cells that help to load sucrose into the sieve tubes
6 of 19
Sieve Tube Elements
Make up the tubes in poloem tissue that carry sap up and down the plant. The sieve tube elements are separated by sieve plates

Xylem Vessels
The tubes which carry water up the plant
8 of 19
Plasmodesmata
Gaps in the cell wall containing cytoplasm that connects two cells
9 of 19
Potometer
A device that can meausre the rate of water uptake as a leafy stem transpires
10 of 19
Transpiration
The loss of water vapour from the aerial parts of a plant, mostly through the stomata in the leaves
11 of 19
Adhesion
The attraction between water molecules and the walls of the xylem vessel
12 of 19
Cohesion
The attraction between water molecules caused by hydrogen bonds
13 of 19
Hydrophyte
A plant adapted to living in water or where the ground is very wet
14 of 19
Xerophyte
A plant adapted to living in dry conditions
15 of 19
Assimilates
Substances that have become a part of the plant
16 of 19
Sink
A part of the plant where those materials are removed from the transport system
17 of 19
Source
A part of the plant that loads materials into the transport system
