Vascular Tissue and Transport VASCULAR TISSUE & TRANSPORT Plants rely on specialized tissue, called vascular tissue, to transport water, nutrients, and the products of photosynthesis around the plant. The two types of vascular tissue are: xylem (zy-lum) phloem Water Transport Xylem - Transports water from the roots up to the rest of the plant in one way flow. Tracheids - Hollow cell in xylem with thick cell walls that resist turgor pressure Water Transport Water rises through the thin tubes by a process called capillary action (cohesion of water molecules and adhesion to solid surface). The thinner the tube, the higher the water will rise.
