Class 11 Biology Anatomy of Flowering Plants The ground tissue system

The ground tissue system

  • All tissues except epidermis and vascular bundles constitute the ground tissue.
  • In leaves, the ground tissue consists of thin-walled chloroplast containing cells called mesophyll.
  • It consists of simple tissues such as parenchyma, collenchyma and sclerenchyma.
  • Parenchymatous cells are usually present in cortex, pericycle, pith and medullary rays, in the primary stems and roots.
