Origin of xylemGerman from Classical Greek xylon, wood
Xylem vessels in a leaf skeleton.
xylem Xylem cells in a stem carry water from a plant's roots to its leaves. Phloem distributes food that is made in the plant's leaves to other parts of the plant. Cambium cells divide into either xylem or phloem cells. The cortex and pith, seen in the st
An example of xylem is what moves water and some nutrients through a plant.
Origin of xylemGerman from Greek xulon wood
From German Xylem, from Ancient Greek Î¾ÏÎ»Î¿Î½ (ksulon, “wood").
- Xylem and protophloem alone are differentiated) being very much shorter than in the stem.
- Differentiation of the xylem progresses outwards, of the phloem inwards, but the two tissues never meet in the centre.
- The xylem being centrifugal and the m, Medullary bundles.
- After the cambium has been active for some time producing secondary xylem and phloem, the latter consisting of sievetubes, phloem-parenchyma and frequently thick-walled fibres, a second cambium is developed in the pericycle; this produces a second vascular zone, which is in turn followed by a third cambium, and so on, until several hollow cylinders are developed.
- Occasionally happens that groups of (After Worsdell.) xylem and phloem are developed pd, Periderm in leaf-bases.
