  • Supports the plant
  • Transports substances through the plant


  • Produces food by photosynthesis


  • Anchors the plant
  • Takes up water+ minerals from the soil


  • Reproduction
  • Epidermal tissue- covers the outside of the plant+ protects the organs
  • The bulk of the stem+ root is composed of packing cells filled with watery fluid- makes the cells firm-> help support the plant
  • Xylem+ phloem- found in the tube-like vascular bundles that run up through roots, leaves+ stems- strong+ support the plant
  • Palisade mesopyll cells- located on the upper surface of the leaf+ contain chloroplasts that absorb sunlight energy for photosynthesis
  • Xylem- dead cells stacked upon one another to form long hollow tube-like vessels; transport water+ dissolved minerals from the roots to the shoots+ leaves
  • Phloem- living cells stacked on top of one another in tubes- transport food substances made in the leaf to other parts of the plant
  • Glucose…
