the most abundant kind of plant cells
long cells with unevenly thickened walls. this type of cell wall allows the cells to grow
cells with walls that are very thick and rigid. at maturity these cells often die, leaving cell walls to provide support for the plant.
dermal tissue that is composed of flattened parenchyma cells that cover all parts of the plant
openings in the cuticle of the leaf that control the exchange of gasses.
cells that control the opening and closing of the stomata
hairlike projections that extend from the epidermis
plant tissue composed of tubular cells that transports water and minerals from the roots to the rest of the plant
tubular cells, with tapered ends, which transport water throughout the plant
lateral meristem that produces a tough covering for the surface of stems and roots
vascular tissue that transport sugars from the leaves to all parts of the plant
sieve tube member
long, cylindrical phloem through which sugars and organic compounds flow.
nucleated cells that help manage the transport of sugars and other organic compounds through the sieve cells of the phloem
areas where new cells are produced
growth tissue found at or near the tips of plants
tubular cells that transport water throughout the plant. these cells are wider and shorter tracheids
lateral meristem that produces new xylem and phloem cells in the stems and roots
