What are phloem and xylem?
The phloem and xylem are two tissues that compose the plant vascular system. The secondary growth of the xylem and phloem depends on cells dividing in the vascular cambium.
The xylem is a system of tubes. In these tubes, a transportation of cells help moves water through the plant and dissolves minerals the plants don’t need.
The phloem is the transportation system for molecules and sugars that are created by the plant. The sugars in plants happens because the leaves of a plant are green and causes photosynthesis.
Without either of these two cell types in plants, they will die. They are the basic circulatory system of plants like in humans.
Chapter 23 Quiz Review for Biology I

These free, printable phloem xylem cell worksheets for biology is 19 pages in length. It will teach fifth graders the basics needed for this area of study in biology.
Plant Biology Worksheets
These plant biology worksheets are for lab work aimed at studying plant life and phloem and xylem structure. There are 17 biology lab worksheets in this group.
Internal Leaf Structure
The internal leaf structure goes hand-in-hand with the other three biology worksheets listed above for phloem and xylem. This group of worksheets has six pages for biology students to use to help them with learning about plant life and cells.
Who studies plant life?
Botanists are those who study plant life. Botany is the study of plant life.
Those who study plant life learn how plants grow and thrive in their environments. Each specie of plant grows in particular terrains around the world.
Being able to identify plants around the world gives botanists a chance to learn why these plants thrive in one area of the world and not others. They are also able to learn if these plants are safe or poisonous like animals.
Without botany and botanists, the plants we know about today wouldn’t exist. Think about the first “Jurassic Park” movie where Ella is explaining about the plants the dinosaurs eat or don’t eat on this island. Since she was a botanist who studied about plant life in the dinosaur era, she was able to identify many of the plants on this island indigenous to that era.
This is why it is important to know what phloem and xylem does in a plant. You may think learning about phloem and xylem isn’t important, it really is important if you are ever lost in the woods and needing nutrition.
