Science / Transportation in Plants and Animals

Science / Transportation in Plants and Animals

  • Living organisms need a transport system to transport food, gases, mineral salts, hormones which is required for normal functioning.
  • Transportation of substances is done by the Circulatory System comprising of blood, blood vessels (arteries, veins and capillaries) and heart.
  • The movement of the blood from the heart to all parts of the body and back to the heart is called Circulation of  Blood.
  • During, this blood flows to arteries with pressure called blood pressure. It is measured with an instrument called Sphygmomanometer.
  • Transportation of water and food take place by Xylem (water) and Phloem (food) through diffusion and osmosis.
  • Diffusion - movement of gas or liquid from higher concentration region to lower concentration region
  • Osmosis - movement of water molecules from a weaker solution to a stronger solution through a semipermeable membrane .
