(Inner bark) The layer of cells that transports nutrients from the crown to the roots.
Tissue forming part of the plant vascular system, responsible for the transport of organic materials, especially sucrose, from the leaves to the rest of the plant. Consists of sieve tubes, companion cells, fibre cells, and parenchyma.
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.
