Ch 36: Campbell Biology Chapter 36: Resource Acquisition and Transport in Vascular Plants

About This Chapter

The Resource Acquisition and Transport in Vascular Plants chapter of this Campbell Biology Companion Course helps students learn the essential lessons associated with resource acquisition and transport in vascular plants. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Resource Acquisition and Transport in Vascular Plants textbook chapter.

How It Works:

  • Identify the lessons in the Campbell Biology Resource Acquisition and Transport in Vascular Plants chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons with this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the resource acquisition and transport topics you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, rewatch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn:

  • The evolutionary history of vascular plants
  • The function of plant tissue compartments
  • How the transport of water and solutes in plants occurs
  • The effects of solutes and pressure on water potential
  • The role of xylem in water transport
  • The structure and function of stomata
  • The function and composition of phloem

The Evolution of Vascular Plants

1. The Evolution of Vascular Plants

This lesson will cover the basics of the earliest evolution of vascular plants, as well as why and how they came to be. Terms such as stomata, rhizoids, xylem, and phloem are defined.

Plant Tissue Compartments & Transport

2. Plant Tissue Compartments & Transport

This lesson goes over three ways substances like water and solutes can be transported from cell to cell in a plant: the symplastic, apoplastic, and transmembrane routes.

Transporting Solutes & Water in Plants

3. Transporting Solutes & Water in Plants

How do plants move water and nutrients where they need to go? That's the question we'll be exploring in this lesson as we look at both xylem and phloem transportation systems and see how plants stay hydrated and energized.

How Solutes and Pressure Affect Water Potential in Plants

4. How Solutes and Pressure Affect Water Potential in Plants

Plants are great at using and moving water. In this lesson, we'll explore the concept of water potential as it applies to plants and check out how solutes and pressure can both impact the total water potential within an organic system.

Xylem: The Effect of Transpiration and Cohesion on Function

5. Xylem: The Effect of Transpiration and Cohesion on Function

Roots absorb water and leaves release water, but how does water move up a plant? In this lesson, we will look at how this happens in vascular plants, including the importance of xylem, cohesion and transpiration in the process.

Stomata of Plants: Function, Definition & Structure

6. Stomata of Plants: Function, Definition & Structure

Did you know that plants 'breathe' through their leaves? Tiny openings called stomata allow plants to exchange gases necessary for cellular processes, such as photosynthesis.

Phloem: The Pressure Flow Hypothesis of Food Movement

7. Phloem: The Pressure Flow Hypothesis of Food Movement

Leaves produce sugars and stems; roots and fruits use these sugars for energy. In this lesson, we will look at how these sugars move throughout vascular plants, including the importance of phloem and the pressure flow hypothesis in the process.

Plant Guard Cells: Function & Definition

8. Plant Guard Cells: Function & Definition

Plants 'sweat' through openings in their leaves, but what controls these openings? Guard cells are small but important cells in leaves that help plants maintain optimal health.
