Name The Common Simple Tissues Of Plant Body And Write One Function Of Each

Simple tissues are of three types, namely parenchyma, collenchyma and sclerenchyma.

Parenchyma

They are living cells and walled, soft in nature due to the presence of thin-walled cells.

Parenchyma consisting of chloroplasts are termed chlorenchyma. These tissues help in photosynthesis. Some parenchymatous cells perform as storage chambers for starch in vegetables and fruits.

Collenchyma

These are characterised by uneven thick-walled living cells. This unevenness in the thickening

of the cell walls offers flexibility with the structural framework and provides mechanical support.

Sclerenchyma

They have cells with thickened lignified walls, providing them strength and making them waterproof.
