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
