Question

Name the different types of elements found in the xylem


Solution

Xylem is composed of cells of four different types: 1. Tracheids; 2. Vessels or tracheae; 3. Xylem parenchyma and 4. Xylem Sclerenchyma. Except xylem parenchyma, all other xylem elements are dead and bounded by thick lignified walls. Vessels are shorter and wider than tracheids. Vessels are very long tube-like structures formed by a row of cells placed end to end. Tracheids are elongated cells with tapering ends. They also conduct water.
