Transport in Plants accounts for around 2% of all inquiries asked in the previous eight years. It comes under the list of high-weightage chapters from Biology. Here in this article, we are sharing a glimpse of transport in plants along with lecture classes, conducted by subject matter experts.
Transport in Plants
The process of moving water and nutrients to all regions of the plant body is known as transportation. Plants have a specific mechanism for distributing water and nutrients throughout their bodies. They utilize a variety of water-related mechanisms, including translocation, absorption, storage, and use.
Transport in Plants: Different Process
Transport in plants takes place through different mechanisms.
- Simple Diffusion
- Faciliated Transport
- Passive Transport
- Active Transport
In this system, molecules travel from a higher concentration zone to a lower concentration and this requires zero energy.
With the aid of membrane proteins, this process transports chemicals from a low-concentration area to a high-concentration region. Since it requires ATP to operate, this mechanism is known as active transport.
In this case, the system uses a carrier, generally a protein, to transport molecules from a high-concentration region to a low-concentration one. Since this process does not require any energy, it is referred to as a passive process.
Molecules are transferred from the higher concentration gradient region to the lower concentration gradient region during passive transport. The molecules in this process are bi-directional. Because of the lack of resistance, the molecules go downwards and there is no need for energy.
Passive Transport is classified into four subcategories
- Facilaited Diffusion
