Š ´Layers or groups of SIMILAR cells with a COMMON function.µ A group of closely associated cells that perform related functions and are similar in structure. Š .

Types of tissues 1) PLANT TISSUES .

ANIMAL TISSUES Epithelial tissue Connective tissue Muscular tissue Nervous tissue .TYPE OF TISSUES CONTD 2).




Function-the main function of meristematic tissue is to continuously form a number of new cells.polygonal or rectangular in shape.MERISTEMATIC TISSUE 1. 2. Each meristematic cell contains dense or abundant cytoplasm & a single large nucleus. 5. Occurrence-Meristematic tissues are growth tissues & are found in those regions of the plant that grow. The meristematic cells may be spherical. The meristematic cells contain few vacuoles or no vacuoles at all. . 4. These cells show the following characteristics: The cells of meristematic tissue are similar in structure & have thin cellulose cell walls. 3. According to their position in the plant. Nature-cells of meristems divide continuously & help in increasing the length girth of the plant. lateral & intercalary. meristems are apical. The meristematic cells are compactly arranged & do not contain any intercellular space between them.oval.

mineral salts(nutrients) & food material to various parts of plant body.Permanent tissues are classified into two-simple & complex.Complex tissues are of following two types : Xylem or wood Phloem or bast Xylem & phloem are both conducting tissues & also known as vascular tissues. III. I.PERMANENT TISSUE Š Š I.these tissues are all made of one type of cells. .All these co-ordinate to perform a common function. Simple permanent tissue-these tissues are composed of cells which are structurally & functionally similar. II. II.together both of them constitute vascular bundles.Complex tissues transport water. These tissues derived from the meristematic tissues but their cells have lost the power of division & have attained their definite forms.They are of three typesParenchyma Collenchyma Sclerenchyma Complex permanent tissue-the complex tissues consist of more than one type of cells.Thus.
