What Does Plant Tissue Mean?
Plants are made up of tissue, just like any other living organism. Also like other living organisms, plants have several different types of tissues. In humans, your skin is a different type of tissue than muscles, and organ tissue is different from ligament tissue. Plants follow the same rule.
Plant tissue is a term applied to the three main types of cellular structures found within plants – dermal, ground, and vascular. Each type of plant tissue has different characteristics, and serves a different function in plant growth and health.
