This tissue exists in dicots but not monocots
vascular cambium
This tissue is one of three meristematic tissues in the region of meristem in roots. It fills the space between the protoderm and procambium
ground meristem
this tissue is one of the three meristematic tissues in the region of meristem in roots. it is the outer layer of cells. these cells are flattened
this is one of the three meristematic tissues in roots in the region of meristem. it is located in the central core. cells in this tissue will later differentiate into vascular tissues
this kind of cell makes up the periderm
cork cells
this tissue exists in monocot roots but not in dicot roots
this tissue is made up of a single layer of parenchyma cells which are covered with a waxy strip called the casparian strip.
in dicot roots this tissue is arranged between the arms of xylem
primary phloem
tissues that originate from the vascular cambium are called
secondary tissues
this tissue is composed of large parenchyma cells and is positioned between the endodermis and epidermis. cells in this tissue usually contain starch making it a food storage tissue
this tissue matures from the protoderm
tjis tissue can become meristematic and produces secondary roots. in dicot roots it can become cork cambium
this tissue produces secondary xylem and secondary phloem
vascular cambium
in roots this tissue contains merstematic cells and forms a narrow band of cells between the xylem and phloem
vascular cambium
this tissue in dicot roots makes periderm
cork cambium
the formation of tissues originated from a cambium is called
secondary growth
in dicots this tissue often produces an X in the cross section
primary xylem
name the 3 secondary tissues in dicot roots
secondary xylem, secondary phloem, periderm
formation of the primary tissues is called
primary growth
tissues that originated from the apical meristem are called
primary tissues
cells in this tissue are the source of secondary roots
in roots these four tissues form the stele
pericycle, primary xylem, primary phloem, vascular cambium
