Tissues ppt. 2

  2. 2. ∗ Group of cells having a common origin similar or related structure which work together to perform a common function. ∗ HISTOLOGY – Study of Tissues ∗ Plants and animals have similar life processes but they do not have similar tissues. ∗ Because of the differences in organisation,mode of living and life style. TISSUES
  3. 3. ∗ Plants : ∗ Continue to grow throughout their life. ∗ Possess meristematic tissues in specific regions of body for growth. ∗ Animals: ∗ Mobile, move in search of food, shelter, etc. ∗ Tissues are living. ∗ Living tissues require more energy for maintenance. ∗ Stop growing after maturity ∗ No meristematic tissues ∗ In having organ and organ system, structural organisation of animals is far more specialised and localised as compared to plants because of mobility and Plants Stationary, require supportive tissues for structural strength. Most tissues are dead, provide mechanical strength and requires less maintenance.
  4. 4. PLANT TISSUES (2 TYPES) PLANT TISSUES Meristematic Tissue (i) Apical (ii) Intercalary (iii) Lateral Permanent Tissue Simple Permanent (i) Parenchyma (ii) Sclerenchyma (iii) Collenchyma Complex Permanent (i) Xylem (ii) Phloem Special Tissue (i)Protective (ii) Glandular
  5. 5. ∗ Thin walled, compactly arranged, immature cells - have the potential to divide and form new cells. ∗ Meristem cells – Meristematic cells ∗ Region where present – functions as growth region. ∗ New cells produced by meristems – meristematic cells - grow slowly, differentiate and mature into components of various permanent tissues MERISTEMATIC TISSUE (also called meristem)
  6. 6. ∗ Shape and size – small, spherical or polygonal in outline. ∗ Cell wall – thin, elastic ∗ Intercellular space – absent, cells are compactly arranged. ∗ Cell contents: ∗ Nucleus is large. ∗ Cytoplasm is dense. ∗ Vacuoles are absent or very small. ∗ Activity: ∗ Respiration is rapid. ∗ High synthetic activity. ∗ Food supply is high but not stored. ∗ Cells grow and divide repeatedly. CHARACTERISTICS OF MERISTEMATIC CELLS
  7. 7. ∗ Parent tissue – Parent tissue from which other tissues develop. ∗ Growth – takes part in growth by formation of new cells. ∗ New Organs – plants continue to produce new leaves, stem branches, flowers, fruits, root hairs and root branches. They are formed by meristematic cells. ∗ Injury – place of injury is healed by the formation FUNCTIONS OF MERISTEMATIC TISSUES
  8. 8. LOCATION OF MERISTEMS ∗ Based on position in plant body, meristematic tissues are of 3 types: (i) Apical, (ii) Intercalary, (iii) Lateral ∗ Apical Meristem: ∗ Occurs in growing tips of stems and roots. ∗ Depending upon its occurrence, it is called: ∗ Root tips – root apical meristem ∗ Stem or shoot tips – stem or shoot apical meristem ∗ Produces growth in length of root and stem. ∗ Intercalary Meristem: ∗ Occurs in intermediate position: ∗ At the base of leaves, ∗ At the base of internodes (eg. Grasses), or, ∗ Below the nodes (eg. Mint)
  9. 9. LOCATION OF MERISTEMS ∗ Intercalary Meristem: ∗ Helps in growth of leaves and internodes. ∗ Upward bending of lodged shoot is made uptight due to intercalary meristem. ∗ It is the left out part of optical meristem. ∗ Lateral Meristem: ∗ Occurs on the sides of both stem and roots. ∗ Increases the girth of stem and root. ∗ Two types: ∗ Vascular Cambium – Produces secondary vascular tissues, secondary phloem, secondary xylem. ∗ Cork Cambium – Produces protective cork on the outside.
