Let us now consider the tissues of the pith and cortex. Three simple tissues, parenchyma, collenchyma, and sclerenchyma, singly, in combinations of two, or all three, may comprise either or both of these tissue regions. Parenchyma is thought of as the ground tissue of an axis since it occurs in greatest abundance and is the tissue in which the vascular tissues are embedded. Parenchyma cells (Fig. 12 Planes of section through secondary xylem. Any section cut parallel to the plane of the page is a transverse section.

A) A vessel member with an oblique end wall and a compound perforation plate, representative of a relatively primitive angiosperm. (b, c) Vessel members with simple perforation plates, representative of more evolutionarily advanced angiosperms. Note the ellipticalto circular-bordered pits in the lateral walls. (d) A series of superposed vessel members comprising a vessel. wood, of relatively small diameter, are circular to polygonal in section, have relatively thick secondary walls (although in fibers in the wood of different species the wall thickness may be highly variable), and have pointed ends.
