1

What is nutrition?

This a dumb question but it's in the notes so... Nutrition is the acquisition of nutrients and water

2

What parts of the plants transport nutrients and wastes over short and long distances?

Transportation systems

3

Movement of oxygen and carbon dioxide between organisms and their environments is classified as what type of transport?

Gas exchange - only occurs with oxygen and carbon dioxide!

4

How is transportation of materials accomplished in single-celled organisms (ex. spyrogyra)?

Streaming or moving of the cytoplasm allows all materials to swirl around the cell like in a washing machine!

5

Can streaming also occur in the cells of multicellular PLANTS?

Yes, yes it can.

6

What two types of vascular tissue allow for transportation of materials in the plant?

Xylem and phloem transport water minerals and sugars.

7

Where are xylem and phloem cells found in many plants?

In their roots, stem and leaves

8

All xylem tissue (trachieds and vessel elements) are dead - why is this?

Dead cells have no organelles which allows for more efficient water transportation

9

The xylem cells form long tubes consisting only of what structure?

Cell walls
