1. What is the symplast pathway?

  • Movement of water through the cytoplasm through the plasma membrane. The cytoplasm of cells is connected through plasmodesmata.
  • Movement of water through cell walls, allowing mineral ions and salts to be carried with the water.
  • Movement of water through the vacuole.

2. What transports water, minerals and ions up from the roots to the leaves?

  • Xylem Tissue

4. What are companion cells?

  • Living cells that connect phloem tissue together.
  • Living cells found in phloem that support sieve tube elements by carrying out the living functions for them e.g. providing energy
  • Dead cells that assist sieve tube elements by controlling what they do.

5. What is the SINK in transportation of solutes?

  • The site where assimilates (solutes) are used up. e.g. roots
  • The site of production of assimilates (solutes). e.g. leaves
  • The uptake of ions in the roots.
  • The removal of ions from a plant.
