Xylem is one of the two types of transport tissue in vascular plants, phloem being the other the basic function of xylem is to transport water from roots to shoots and leaves, but it also transports nutrients. Tissues are composed of cells, and tissues are parts of the organs in each bodily system however, each type of tissue is responsible for specific functions that promote the health of the body. In plants xylem and phloem are the complex tissues which are the components parts of conductive system. B08 comparison of plant & animal tissue 3 march 25, 2013 1 dermal tissue the xylem transports water and dissolved mineral from the compare and contrast animal and plant tissues title: b08 comparison of plant & animal tissue subject: smart board interactive whiteboard notes keywords.
Difference between xylem and phloem xylem and phloem are two different types of tissues which are mainly involved in transporting the minerals, water, and food from the roots to the leaves every living thing on earth evolves the biological process, from the nucleus to tissues and glands processing every single element. Phloem and xylem are complex tissues that perform transportation of food and water in a plant they are the vascular tissues of the plant and together form vascular bundles they work together as a unit to bring about effective transportation of food, nutrients, minerals and water. Pares and contrast the xylem,and phloem to the viens and arteriesthere are difffrences between the xlyem, phloem, to viens and arteries the first diffrence is that xylem transport water,minierals, and nutrients, up and down the plant, but the veins and arteries transports blood to the heart and away the heart. Xylem is the complex, dead and permanent tissue responsible for carrying nutrients and water, whereas phloem is the soft and permanent tissue play its role in transporting the food and other organic material produced by the green parts especially leaves by the process of photosynthesis.

Dicot roots have their xylem in the center of the root and phloem outside the xylem a carrot is an example of a dicot root diagram illustrating the tissue layers and their organization within monocot and dicot roots. Xylem is the specialised tissue of vascular plants that transports water and nutrients from the plant–soil interface to stems and leaves, and provides mechanical support and storage the water‐conducting function of xylem is one of the major distinguishing features of vascular plants. Xylem composes the woody or stem part of a plant its job is to transport water and dissolved minerals from the roots to the other parts of the plant xylem is made up of long, hollow cells that create water-conducting tissue. The main type of complex tissues are xylem and phloem xylem is complex tissue and is also called hydrome xylem is complex tissue and is also called hydrome this is responsible for the conduction of water in the plant.
Class 11: biology: anatomy of flowering plants: types of xylem. #60 distribution of xylem and phloem in roots, stems and leaves - in the roots, xylem and phloem are in the centre to withstand stretching forces - in the stems , they are arranged in bundles near the edge to resist compression and bending forces. A group of flowering plants belonging to the class lilliopsida (or monocotyledonae of angiospermae (angiosperms), characterized by having only one cotyledon in the seed and an endogenous manner of growth monocots are named for & recognized by the single cotlyedon, or seed leaf, within the seed the. Xylem tissue- 1)a vascular tissue in plants which is responsible ffor transportation of water and minerals in plant 2)it is responsible for transport of water and minerals 3)transportation of water and minerals through xylem is known as ascent o. Signiﬁcance of xylem structure in terms of the carbon cost of transpiration and the net carbon proﬁt via gas exchange keywords: xylem evolution, ecological wood anatomy, cavitation, plant water relations.
Compare and contrast the phloem and xylem vessels science explain why it is necessary for phloem to be alive to be functional,whereas xylem can function as dead tissue. Both xylem and phloem are vascular tissues found in a plant xylem is a tubular structure which is responsible for water transport from the roots towards all of the parts of the plant. Similarity: both stems and roots contain vascular tissues (xylem and phloem), the circulatory system of the plant difference: in herbaceous stems, the vascular tissues are contained in bundles these bundles sit relatively near the surface of the stem. Xylem is the tissue responsible for supporting the plant as well as for the storage and long-distance transport of water and nutrients, including the transfer of water-soluble growth factors from the organs of synthesis to the target organs.
The complex permanent tissue is composed of several types of cells the two types of complex permanent tissues are xylem and the phloemxylem conducts water and minerals from roots to leaves the four types of cells in the xylem are tracheids, vessels, xylem fibers and xylem parenchymaphloem conducts organic substances throughout the plant body. Compare and contrast the structures and functions of the root, stem and leaf be sure to connect structure with function any help is greatly appreciated. Wood is primarily composed of xylem cells with cell walls made up of cellulose and lignin woody plants form a new layer of woody tissue each year, increasing the diameter of the stem you can see these tissue layers inside a tree if you were to cut it down.
Compare and contrast the mechanisms of fluid transport in xylem and phloem the information below was adapted from openstax biology 305 sugars move from “source” to “sink. Tissue formation in angiosperms exceeds the amount and complexity found in gymnosperms angiosperms have a triploid vascular tissue, flat leaves in numerous shapes and hardwood stems because of the innumerable varieties of the fruit and/or flower-bearing plants, they have variegated colors and shapes of leaves, flowers and fruits. Xylem and phloem are the components of the vascular tissue system in plants in the young parts of the stem, the xylem and phloem are together organized as vascular bundles both xylem and phloem are complex tissues which composed of more than one types of cells. Table to compare transport systems in mammals eg humans with those in flowering plants mammals have blood circulation while flowering plants have xylem and phloem plants have 2 types of transport tissue: xylem moves water and solutes from the roots to the leaves in contrast, hemolymph.
It consists of xylem and phloem tissues which are found as strands termed as vascular bundles the main function of xylem is to conduct water, materials to different parts of the plant body the main function of phloem is transportation of food materials in different parts of the plant.
