Regular price £4.95 Sale

Teach translocation of sucrose in the phloem in a new way!

Our colourful and interactive model shows how sucrose is transported within a plant.

Your students make the specialised plant cells then use them to make a stem. They can then follow how sucrose made by photosynthetic cells (source) is moved by phloem sieve-element cells and transported through the stem to root cells (sink). Students can use the model the pressure-flow hypothesis. 

Covers: phloem structure, companion cells, source and sink, pressure-flow hypothesis, plant cell specialisation.
