5 Transport Sugar molecules from photosynthesis are transported in throughout plant, including into roots. Most water that plant absorbs is transpired into atmosphere. Once inside roots, water and minerals are transported upward in xylem to stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds. Roots obtain water and dissolved minerals from soil. Fig , p. 740 Water Potential A measure of the free energy of water Pure water = 0 water = lots of free energy no solutes Water with dissolved solutes has lowered water potential (a negative number) Water moves from higher (less negative) water potential to lower (more negative) water potential From area of fewer solutes to more solutes Tension Cohesion Model Explains rise of water even in the tallest plants! Transpiration evaporative pull causes tension at top of plant result of water potential gradient (ranges from slightly negative in soil and roots to very negative in atmosphere) Tension Cohesion Model Column of water pulled up through the plant remains unbroken due to cohesive and adhesive properties of water Tension Cohesion Model Root Pressure Explains rise of water in smaller plants particularly when soil is wet Pushes water up through xylem water moves from soil into roots due to active absorption of mineral ions from soil 5

6 Root Pressure (solutes) Water enters roots by osmosis (No solutes) Soil Root xylem Stem xylem Leaf xylem atmosphere Water is pulled and pushed through a plant Sugar Translocation Dissolved sugar is translocated upward or downward in from area of excess sugar (usually a leaf) to a sink (area of storage or sugar use: roots, apical meristems, fruits, seeds) Sucrose is predominant sugar translocated in Pressure Flow Hypothesis Explains movement of materials in Companion cells actively load sugar into sieve tubes at source requires ATP Pressure Flow Hypothesis Turgor pressure gradient produced by water entering at source and water leaving at sink drives flow of materials between source and sink ATP energy pumps protons out of sieve tube elements 6

7 Source ATP Pressure Flow Hypothesis Pressure-flow hypothesis translocation Sucrose loaded and unloaded requires ATP Water moves osmotically Sink 7
