What are the functions of cork cells?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
The walls of cork cells contain a chemical called suberin, which makes them impermeable to water and gases. Thus, cork cells prevent water loss from plants and also make them more resistant to bacterial and fungal infection.
