Q- What is vascular tissue? How does the vascular tissue differ from other type of connective tissues in animals?
Answer- The vascular tissue includes two complex tissues. These are:
1. Xylem tissue
2. Phloem tissue
The xylem tissue is responsible for transportation of water and minerals to all other parts of the plant and tree. The Phloem tissues are responsible for transport of food and nutrients to other parts of the plant and tree.
The vascular tissue is different from other connective tissue in animals in such a way that in animals the vascular connective tissue includes blood and lymph that helps in transportation of nutrient in animal body whereas xylem and phloem tissue are also involved in transport of water, food and minerals to plant.
