What does vascular bundle consist of?

The vascular bundle is a part of the transport system in vascular plants which is comprised of two tissues: xylem and phloem.  There are different types of vascular bundles found in the plants and each of them functions in a different manner.

The Vascular Tissue System

  • It consists of complex tissues of the xylem and phloem
  • Dicots have cambium present between the xylem and phloem of the vascular bundle
  • Cambium forms secondary vascular tissues
  • Dicots have an open vascular bundle
  • Monocots have a closed type of vascular bundle, i.e. cambium is absent
  • Roots have a radial arrangement of vascular bundles, i.e. xylem and phloem are present alternatively
  • Stem and leaves have a conjoint arrangement of vascular bundles, i.e. xylem and phloem are present at the same radius
