What is xylem composed of?

vessel elements, tracheids, fibres, and parenchyma

How does xylem tracheids and vessels help the plants when they are placed end to end like tubes?

The xylem tracheids and vessels placed end to end like tubes in plants help in the conduction of water.

Water and minerals flow up through the?

Tracheids and vessels of xylem

Write four elements of xylem?

Tracheids Vessels Xylem parenchyma Xylem fibres

What does Tracheids and vessels together make up?

Tracheids:1. These are xylem elements found in all types of vascular plants.2. These are single cells with tapering ends, hence are not syncytes.3. Tracheids are shorter in length.Vessels:1. These are also xylem elements but restricted to angiosperms only .2. A vessel is formed by several cells arranged end to end and dissolved cross walls, hence is a syncyte.3. Vessels are much longer than tracheids and are main component for water conduction.

What is the function of a vascular tissue?

i think the answer would be that if its in plants the vascular tissue includes Xylem and Phloem which we know that its for 1) transportation and distrubition of nutrients in plants 2) absorption of nutrients ans minerals

What two cell types make up xylem amd phloem?

Xylem - Tracheids and Vessels. Phloem - Sieve-tube cells and Companion cells.

How is Xylem tissue well adapted to its function?

The tracheids, fibres, and vessels present in the xylem, become lignified during development, losing their living contents. This makes the tissue impermeable (to water) so none is lost as water is transported via the xylem. The tracheids' bordered pits allow for the rapid movement of water from cell to cell. As is with tracheids, the lignification of vessels can occur as rings, spirals, scalariform or reticulate. In the first formed xylem, rings and spirals occur more frequently. This allows for a limited amount of stretching which may occur in young structures. Both tracheids and vessels provide a pathway for the transportation of water, whilst also contributing to support.
