Xylem and Phloem – Transport in Plants | Biology for All | FuseSchool
Plants have a transport system to move things around.
The xylem moves water and solutes, from the roots to the leaves in a process known as transpiration.
The phloem moves glucose and amino acids from the leaves all around the plant, in a process known as translocation.
The xylem and phloem are arranged in groups called vascular bundles. The arrangement is slightly different in the roots to the stems. The xylem are made up of dead cells, whereas the phloem is made up of living cells.
