Phloem

Verlag von Gustav Fischer, Jena: 234. In vascular plants, phloem or bast is the living tissue that transports the soluble organic compounds made during photosynthesis and known as photosynthates, in particular the sugar sucrose, to parts of the plant where needed. This transport process is called translocation.

In trees, the phloem is the innermost layer of the . A secondary school revision resource for OCR Gateway GCSE Additional Science about the transport in plants, xylem and phloem , transpiration and adaptations.

One or more companion cells may be associated . In most plant species, phloem is made up of phloem fibres, phloem parenchyma, sieve cells (sieve elements) and their accompanying companion cells (Figure a). Sieve elements are ideally suited for rapid transport of substances at high rates over long distances. They are elongated and are . Vascular plants have two types of conducting tissues: phloem and xylem. These events take place in the phloem loading zone (Figure 2A).

The tissue is responsible for translocation, a process in plants responsible for transporting the photosynthate materials to all parts of a vascular plant. Phloem is the living tissue that. The xylem and the phloem make up the vascular tissue of plants and transports water, sugars and other important substances to leaves, stems and roots. A tissue that conducts food materials in vascular plants from regions where they are produced (notably the leaves) to regions, such as growing points, where they are needed. The transport of sugars throughout the plant, called translocation, is.

With an emphasis on natural materials and traditional joinery, all pieces are designed by founder and craftsperson Benjamin Klebba with occasional collaborators. The phloem is the main conduit for the transport of photoassimilates, the sugars produced through photosynthesis. To allow for an unobstructed flow, the sieve elements, cells through . This is as good an example as could be found of the circularity of arguments about path and substance we have already . A vascular tissue in land plants primarily responsible for the distribution of sugars and nutrients manufactured in the shoot. The other vascular tissue is the phloem.

Its principal function is the conducting of assimilates and food. All organisms, and in particular multicellular ones, need to maintain functional coherence. It is composed of the sieve elements, of which two types can be distinguishe sieve cells and sieve-tube members. In land plants, the phloem tissue is an essential actor in .

An example of the phloem is the tissue in plants that distributes the sugar that plants eat. Xylem and phloem make up the big transportation system of vascular plants. As you get bigger, it is more difficult to transport nutrients, water, and sugars around your body. You have a circulatory system if you want to keep growing. As plants evolved to be larger, they also developed their own kind of circulatory systems.

In this lesson, we will look at how these sugars move throughout vascular plants, including the importance of phloem and the pressure flow hypothesis in the process.

It is well known that phloem and xylem vessels transport small nutrient molecules over long distances in higher plants.
