Plant Tissues (Meristematic tissue (Vascular Cambium (thin cylinder of…
increase diameter of plants
Found in roots and stems
Protect apical meristem
These cells form a protective layer on the outside of stems and roots & rootcap
Produce cells that develop a tough cell wall
Found at one or more location along a monocot stem.
Produce cells that promotes growth
thin cylinder of meristematic tissue
run the length of roots or stems
Produce new transport tissues
THE ADDITION OF NEW VASCULAR TISSUE INCREASES THE DIAMETER OF THE STEMS
Found in tips of stems
AND THE TIPS OF THE ROOTS
Promote primary growth in length
Opening and closing of stomata
Aid in gas exchange
THE CHANGE IN WATER PRESSURE IN THE CELLS WILL LEAD TO THEOPENING AND CLOSING OF THE STOMATA
Increase surface area for water absorption
Fragile extension of root epidermal cells.
PROJECTIONS FROM THE ROOT
Provide protection against foreign by releasing chemicals
Hair-like projections/fuzzy appearance
Help cool some plants by reflecting light
prevent foreign materials and water loss
CAN PRODUCE CUTICLE
stacked end to end
lack end walls allowing free movement of water
xylem in flowering plants
fiber sclerenchyma cells
with pitted end and end walls
make up xylem in flowering and nonflowering plants
2 types of cells :
Sieve tube members
Lack nuclei & ribosomes when mature.
Have a nucleus
Preform cell functions for both cells
Transport nutrients from leaves and stems to roots and the other way around.
Main food carrying tissue in vascular plants.
Consist of all types of cells
Found all over the plant
