Best Answer

Xylem is a complex permanent tissue that is made up of four types of cells or elements. These are:- 1. Tracheids 2. Vessels 3. Xylem parenchyma 4. Xylem fibres Among these, only Xylem Fibres are dead and the rest three are living. Xylem is also known as wood. Tracheids and Vessels have 5 types of lignifications: annular (in the form of rings), spiral (as a helix), reticulate (in the form of network), scalariform (as a ladder), and pitted (with small and circular unthickened areas called pits).
