Section 4- Structures of Seed Plants You have different body systems that carry out many functions, such as the  nervous system, digestive system, and the blood system. Plants have systems too – a root system, a shoot system, and a reproductive  system. A plant’s root system and shoot system supply the plant with what it needs to survive. The root system is made of roots. The shoot system is made of stems and leaves. There are two kinds of vascular tissue: xylem and phloem xylem - provides support conducts water and nutrients from roots phloem - conducts food from leaves to plant Roots 3 Main Functions 1. supply plants with water and dissolved materials. These materials are absorbed from the soil. The water and minerals are transported to the shoots in the xylem.   2. Roots hold plants securely in the soil. 3. Roots store surplus food made during photosynthesis. The food is produced in the leaves.
