Q- Name the cells forming the phloem. Which of these cell types are involved in long distance conduction of food.
Answer- The phloem tissue is consisted of four main types of components. These four pars of phloem tissue are as follows:
1. Companion cells
2. Sieve tube cells
3. Phloem parenchyma
4. Phloem fibre
Among these four the sieve tube cells are responsible for long distance conduction of food in all other parts of the plant and tree.
