Q. What are the components of the transport system in highly organized plants?
The main components of transport system in plants are:
1. Xylem, 2. Phloem.
Xylem – It consists of vessels and tracheids. Xylem helps to conduct water and minerals from soil to the leaves.
Phloem – It consists of sieve tubes and companion cell. Phloem helps to transport food materials from leaves to various parts of the plant. This process is called translocation.
