Featurestissue/cell/structure
first plant structure to absorb water from soil
irregular photosynthetic cells in leaves, first to lose water via transpiration
outside daughter cells of the vascular cambium become this layer
lignified vascular cell that transports water and minerals
nonliving layer that reflects both heat and water; found on leaves and stems (but not roots!)
most common and most versatile plant cell; has only one cell wall and is used for storage, secretion, growth (it is meristematic), photosynthesis and wound repair
general term for cells that die at maturity in order to transport water and minerals
a region of soft spongy parenchyma cells in herbaceous stems, found in the center of dicot stems; replaced by xylem in older trees
a ring of vascular cells where lateral roots grow out of
specialized companion cell (phloem) that 'feeds' starch to a seed
the portion of wood that is light-colored functional xylem
layer of cells created by the cork cambium, replaces epidermis in woody plants
the phloem of ferns and pines is made up of this type of cell
common name for all stem layers outside of the vascular cambium
plant cell in ground tissue with one thick cell wall that supports growing leaves and stems
a layer of cells filled with wax and suberin, made to the outside of the cork cambium
a waxy ring that blocks apoplastic water movement
use proton pumps to move sugars along cell walls near sieve tube cells
Featurestissue/cell/structure
what surrounds the spongy mesophyll
created by the vascular cambium and is functional when dead and unfilled
secondary stem growth strengthened by lignified xylem, surrounded by bark
vascular cell that actively transports carbohydrates in angiosperms
supporting cells of ground tissue with extremely thick cell walls and sometimes lignin
column-shaped photosynthetic cells in leaves
general term for cells that transport carbohydrates
meristematic tissue that gives rise to periderm and a wax-filled protective layer (and to more of itself)
when these swell, stomata close
regulatory vascular tissue that, in some monocots, concentrates carbon dioxide near RuBisCO
a layer for photosynthesis and storage found in herbaceous stems and roots
meristematic tissue that gives rise to secondary xylem and secondary phloem (and more of itself)
a term for the cluster of xylem and phloem in the center of roots
short wide vascular cell with gaps in both cell walls; efficiently moves water and minerals in angiosperms
the portion of wood filled with dark oils, gums and resins
ring of cells containing the Casparian strip
cell that secretes substances (often, insecticides) to the outside of the leaf
hole that is found in leaves to allow gas and water vapor exchange
