Xylem

Asked by Butterflywing | Sep 4, 2007 | GCSE Level > Biology > Revision

Butterflywing asks:

Why is it impossible to identify individual xylem cells?

etutor answers:

To be honest, it isn't always impossible, but it's certainly very difficult. This is because the xylem cells have no end walls, so they form a continuous tube. The thickening of the walls makes it difficult to see where the cells join.
