Xylem Fibre. Phloem: Companion Cell. Sieve Tube. Phloem Parenchyma. Phloem Fibre.   Meristematic Tissue   Structure Cells are living Hexagonal in shape. No inter-cellular space. Nucleus is prominent. Vacuole are small in size. Cell wall is thin. Protoplasm is granular. Retains the power of cell division.   Function It helps the plants to increase in height and girth.   Location A) Apical meristem- Present at the apex of stem and root B) Intercalary meristem- Present in between the permanent tissues C) Lateral meristem- Present at the lateral side of root and stems    Permanent Tissue: A)  Simple Permanent Tissue:   Parenchyma All...
