Complex tissues consist of more than one type of cells, all of which coordinate to perform a similar function. The different complex tissues in plants are xylem and phloem.


Functions of xylem:

They carry water and mineral salts upwards from roots to different parts of the plant.

They provide mechanical strength to the plant body.


Function of phloem:

Phloem  transports the food materials from leaves to other parts of the plant.
