Xylem transports - water and mineral ions , Xylem vessels - are dead and hollow, Phloem tubes - are living , Phloem transports - sugars (glucose) , Transpiration - evaporation of water from leaves , Stomata - leaf pores allow gas exchange , Night time - stomata close to stop water loss, Day time - stomata open to allow gas exchange, Carbon dioxide - diffuses into the leaf, Oxygen - diffuses out of the leaf , Transpiration stream - route water takes: root hairs-root-stem-leaves via xylem, High humidity - slows transpiration, High wind, temperatures + light - speed up transpiration,
