Transport Systems in Plants and Animals
This post will be an introduction to transport and will explore transport systems in plants and animals for Prelim Biology.
- Investigate transport systems in animals and plants by comparing structures and components using physical and digital models, including but not limited to:
- Macroscopic structures in plants and animals
- Microscopic samples of blood, the cardiovascular system and plant vascular systems
Transport System in Plants
The transport system for plants has been explored in previous posts in greater depth but here are some videos.
Transport in vascular plants.
Transport in non-vascular plants (simply diffusion and osmosis).
Transport Systems in Animals
In animals, nutrients and gases are transported via the circulatory system (aka cardiovascular system) which is an intricate network of blood vessels that carry blood to the heart (veins) and away from the heart (arteries).
This video will go through the circulatory and respiratory system.
This video will explore the three types of circulation in the body.
This video also explores how the heart and the circulatory system work together.
