Transport in Plants

Small distance transport

Diffusion

Cytoplasmic streaming

Active transport

Translocation

Transport over a long distance

Through vascular tissues, xylem and phloem

Multidirectional transport

Organic compounds and mineral nutrients

Unidirectional Transport

Through xylem, water and minerals

Diffusion

Passive transport from higher to lower concentration

Gaseous movement in plants

Depends on the concentration gradient, permeability, temperature and pressure

Facilitated diffusion

Diffusion of hydrophilic moiety through a carrier protein

Concentration gradient is required

No expenditure of energy

Aquaporins

Water channels

Symport

Diffusion of two molecules in the same direction

Antiport

Diffusion of two molecules in the opposite direction

Active transport

Transport against the concentration gradient

Uphill transport

Expenditure of energy

Osmosis

Movement of water through a selectively permeable membrane from higher potential to lower potential until equilibrium is achieved

Plasmolysis

Water moves out of the cell leading to shrinkage

Occurs in a hypertonic solution

Flaccid

When cells are kept in an isotonic solution, there is no net movement of water

Turgid

Cells become turgid when placed in a hypotonic solution

Imbibition

Absorption of water by solids and colloid

E.g. water absorption by seeds, dry wood

Apoplastic path

Cell wall and intercellular spaces

Symplastic path

System of interconnected protoplast

Transpiration

Loss of water through evaporation

Guttation

Exudation of xylem sap near the tip of grasses mostly at night due to root pressure

Transpiration Pull

Driving force for transportation of water upwards from roots to leaves

Phloem translocation

Bidirectional, active process

Water, sucrose and other sugars, amino acids, hormones
