Differentiate between parenchyma, colenchyma and sclerenchyma

Parenchyma:

  • These are the cells found in soft part of plants such as leaves,fruits
  • These cells are not the specialised cells
  • These cell consists of thin cell wall
  • The cell wall is made up of cellulose
  • These consists of living cell at maturity

Collenchyma:

  • These cells
  • These cells are found in petiole, leaves and young stems
  • These cells are specialised cell
  • These cell consists of unequally thin cell wall
  • The cell wall is made up of pectin and cellulose
  • These consists of living cell at maturity

Sclerenchyma:

  • These cells are found in mature parts of the plant like herbaceous perennials and woody plants
  • These cells are specialised cells
  • The cell wall consists of a thick and rigid cell wall
  • The cell wall is made up of waterproofing lignin
  • These cells consists of dead cells at maturity
