conducting tissue .

Expert Answer:

In gymnosperms,  xylem is the water conducting tissue. It contains nonliving cells whose walls form a conducting system of “pipes” through which water and minerals are conducted from the roots to the shoots. The sturdy nature of the xylem makes it useful in support as well. Vessels are absent in xylem of gmnosperms.
