Transportation in Animals and Plants


Describe the function of the heart.


The heart is an organ that pumps blood to all parts of the body through blood vessels. For the transport of blood, our heartbeats continuously like a pump. The heart has four chambers. The upper two chambers are called atria (singular: atrium) and the lower two chambers are called ventricles. The partition between the chambers helps to avoid mixing up blood rich in oxygen with blood rich in carbon dioxide.
