Unformatted text preview: lonizing new habitats. 3. The movement of water through vascular plants is important to their survival.
(a) Explain the mechanism of water movement through vascular plants during transpiration. Include a
discussion of how the anatomy of vascular plants and the properties of water contribute to this process.
(b) Explain how gas exchange affects transpiration.
(c) Describe TWO adaptations that affect the rate of transpiration in desert plants. 4. The evolution of circulatory systems allowed larger and more-complex animals to arise.
(a) Describe the respiratory and digestive systems' specialized structures that facilitate the movement of oxygen
and glucose into the circulatory system of mammals.
(b) Explain how oxygen and glucose are transported within the circulatory system of mammals.
