Expert Answer:

Significance of osmosis and diffusion in plants and animals:

  • Plants use this to absorb water from the soil to the roots. Osmosis is important to plants because it allows for water uptake, photosynthesis and general stability. 
  • Osmosis ensures that all cells and structures within a plant have correct water pressure and volume. 
  • In animals, osmosis helps to absorb water from the intestines to the blood.
