Here is Mr Taylor’s presentation on this topic.  Transport in angiospermophytes

  • How do water and mineral ions enter a plant?
  • How does water move upwards, against gravity, in a plant stem?
  • What is transpiration and what are the factors that affect it?
  • How are plants adapted for particularly dry or wet environments?

We will also set up a lab to investigate which surface of a leaf transpires the most, and learn what a potometer is and how to use it.
