Phloem

Living conducting tissue of a plant, a system basically composed of sieve tube, comparison cells, fibres and sclereids to convey the products of photosynthesis, particularly sucrose, from the leaves to growing tissues.

phloem

(Inner bark) The layer of cells that transports nutrients from the crown to the roots.

Phloem

In vascular plants, phloem is the living tissue that carries organic nutrients (known as photosynthate), in particular, sucrose, a sugar, to all parts of the plant where needed. In trees, the phloem is the innermost layer of the bark, hence the name, derived from the Greek word φλοιός (phloios) meaning `bark`. The phloem is concerned mainl.....

Living plant tissue located just beneath the bark and outside of the cambium layer. Phloem cells conduct sugars and other organic materials downward from the leaves towards the trunk and roots. The xylem tissue, by contrast, is just inside the cambium layer and it conducts water and minerals from the roots upwards towards the leaves.
