Science / Biology / Cambium: A lateral meristem in plants. Types of cambiums include vascular, cork, and intercalary.

Vascular Cambium

Science / Biology / Vascular Cambium: A layer of lateral meristematic tissue between the xylem and phloem in the stems of woody plants. Lateral meristem tissue in plants that produces secondary growth. MORE

Cork Cambium

Science / Biology / Cork Cambium: A layer of lateral meristematic tissue between the cork and the phloem in the bark of woody plants. MORE


Science / Biology / Xylem: Tissue in the vascular system of plants that moves water and dissolved nutrients from the roots to the leaves; composed of various cell types including tracheids and vessel elements. Plant tissue type MORE


Life Style / Wine Grapes / Muscadine: Is a native American species of grapevine commonly found in the Southern states of the U.S. and Mexico. Technically classified as 'Muscadinia rotundifolia', this genus has 40 chromosomes as opposed to MORE

Growth Rings

Science / Biology / Growth Rings: Features of woody stems produced by plants growing in areas with seasonal (as opposed to year-long) growth. The growth ring marks the position of the vascular cambium at the cessation of the previous MORE

Vascular Bundle

Science / Biology / Vascular Bundle: Groups of xylem, phloem and cambium cells in stems of plants descended from the procambium embryonic tissue layer. MORE
