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

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

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
