Origin of phloemGerman from Greek phloios bark ; see bhleu- in Indo-European roots.
First attested in 1872. From German PhlÃ¶em, from Ancient Greek Ï†Î»ÏŒÎ¿Ï‚ (phloos, “husk, bark"), from Ï†Î»ÎÏ‰ (phleÅ, “I abound")
- The xylem and phloem also, rarely form perfectly continuous layers as they do in a solenostelic fern.
- The phloem is generally Type.
- Eventually the new phellogens reach the level of the secondary phloem, and are formed in the parenchyma of the latter, keeping pace in their inward march with the formation of fresh secondary phloem by the cambium.
- In the primary and secondary tissue, is that the proteid cells of the phloem are here always sister-cells of the leptoids and are known as companion-cells.
- Sometimes in such cases the cambium ceases to be active round these bays and joins across the outside of the bay, where it resumes its normal activity, thus isolating a phtoem strand, or, as it is sometimes called, a phloem -island, in the midst of the xylem.
