cork cambium

Which of the following is a meristematic tissue?

protoderm

Which of the following is a primary meristem?

nodes

In grasses and related plants, intercalary meristems are found in the vicinity of

apical meristems

Primary tissues are produced by

base of grass leaves

In which location would an intercalary meristem be found?

meristems

Actively dividing cells can be found in

apical meristems

Primary tissues can be traced to their origin in

cork cambium

Which of the following is a meristematic tissue?

protoderm

Which tissue is derived from the apical meristem?

cell division

The primary activity of cells of meristematic tissues is _.

vascular cambium

Secondary meristems, such as _ produce tissues that increase the girth of a plant.

increase the length of a plant

Primary meristems produce tissues that _.

tissues

Groups of cells that have a similar structure or common function are called _.

collenchyma

Which of the following tissues has support as one of its primary functions?

sclereid

Which of the following cells has a relatively thick wall?

transfer cells

Parenchyma cells that develop irregular extensions of the cell wall that greatly increase the surface area are called

fiber

Which of the following is a type of sclerenchyma cell?

aerenchyma

A tissue composed of thin-walled cells with interconnecting air spaces between them is called

sclerenchyma

Lignin is found primarily in

lumen

The tiny cavity at the center of fiber and stone cells is called a

the epidermis

Collenchyma cells are most often found adjacent to

provide strength to growing organs

What is the function of collenchyma tissue?

parenchyma cell

A cell type that has thin primary cell walls, a large vacuole, and is living at maturity is a

sclereid

Which cell type has a thick and lignified cell wall?

sclereid

Which is a type of sclerenchyma cell?

cortex of herbaceous stems, just underneath the epidermis

You would expect to find collenchyma tissue in the

parenchyma

Simple tissues such as ____________ are formed from a single type of cell.

phloem

Which of the following tissues has sugar conduction as a primary function?

epidermis

In woody dicots, the periderm eventually replaces

chloroplasts

Guard cells differ from other epidermal cells in having

xylem

Fiber cells are commonly found in

water conduction

A primary function of tracheids is

sieve plates

The porous cell wall regions of food-conducting cells are called

lateral transport

Rays function primarily in

vessel elements

Conducting cells that are open at either end include

periderm

The tissue in which lenticels are formed is

suberin

The fatty substance in the walls of cork cells is

nectar, oils, mucilage, resins

Which of the following may be secreted by secretory cells?

guard cell and trichome

Which is a type of epidermal cell?

root hair

Underground epidermal cells may have the exterior cell wall extended into a long, thin thread-like structure called _.
