Plant Cells & Tissues
CHS Advanced Biology students will use these flashcards to study specific plant cells and tissues
Flexible, thin-walled, spherical cells that perform a wide range of functions.
Plant cells that are elongated and occur in long strands or cylinders that provide support for surrounding cells.
Plant cells that lack cytoplasm when they mature, but retain their thick, cell walls.
Regions of rapidly dividing cells
A thin cylinder of meristematic tissue that can run the entire length of roots and stems.
Produces cells that develop tough cell walls that form a protective outside layer on stems and roots.
The layer of cells that makes up the outer covering on a plant.
The two cells that form a stoma.
The water-carrying vascular tissue that is composed of vessel element and tracheid cells.
Cells in the xylem tissue that are tubular and stacked end to end forming long strands.
Long, cylindrical cells in the xylem that have pitted ends.
The main food-carrying tissue in vascular plants.
sieve tube members
Cells in the phloem tissue that lack a nucleus, but are long and cylindrical for conducting sugar water.
Cells in the phloem tissue that have a nucleus and assist the sieve tube members.
Consist of parenchyma, collenchyma, and sclerenchyma cells and have diverse functions, including photosynthesis, storage, and support.
