What vascular tissue at transports water and minerals in plants?
Water and disolved minerals are transported by xylem from the roots through the plant. The products of photosynthesis are transported by phloem. xylem Xylem and Phloem xylem In vascular plants, water and minerals are transported by xylem cells. xylem plants dont have tissues as such. but the veins transport water and neutrience in a plant, the phleom carries glucose and the xylem carries water. Vascular tissue, specifically, xylem. the xylem carries water and the phloem carries nutrients xylem xylem xylem Xylem Tissue The vascular tissue called xylem. Xylem ...

How many types of element together make up the xylem tissue?
In Angiosperms , it is xylem vessels ( proto and meta xylem together ) , Xylem sclerenchyma and xylem parenchyma ; together form Xylem tissue ( That is why xylem is called a compound tissue ). In Gymnosperms , xylem vessels are replaced by Xylem tracheids . All other tings are almost the same . ...

What are the difference between primary xylem and secondary xylem?
primary xylem is primary in nature & is derived from procambium. But secondary xylem is secondary in nature and derived from fascicular cambium and interfascicular cambium. Primary xylem is differentiated into protoxylem and metaxylem, but secondary xylem has no such differentiation. In primary xylem vessels and tracheids are long and narrow, and vessels don't have tyloses, but in secondary xylem, vessels are blocked by tyloses, and vessels and tracheids are wider and shorter. Xylem fibres are more abundant in secondary xylem , and...

Why is xylem considered as complex permanent tissue?
Xylem is a complex tissue, as it consists of both parenchymatous and sclerenchymatous cells. Xylem consists of living and non-living cells. Xylem is composed of four elements- (a) tracheids (b) vessels (c) xylem parenchyma (d) xylem fibres. ...
Describe where the phloem and xylem located in the root?
the xylem is in the roots and the phloem is in the stem actually, their is xylem and phloem in the roots. there is a large central core of xylem often in the shape of an x. and the phloem is found in between the arms of the x shaped xylem. ...
