Transportation in plants is the vital process of transporting or distribution of water molecules, essential minerals, food and other nutrients to different parts of the plants. In all, higher plants transportation play an essential role in their growth, development and for their survival. Different parts of the plant involved in movement or transport of water molecules and other essential nutrients are the roots, stem and the leaves.
Transport in plants occurs at three levels. Xylem and phloem are the two complex tissues which play a major role in the transportation process. Transport in plants occurs at three levels:
- Cellular transport
- Absorption of water
- Transfer of water and nutrients from the root to the highest part of the plant.
