Vascular bundle





Xylem and Phloem are two types of vascular bundle.

A vascular bundle is a part of the transport system in vascular plants, i.e. celery.

It transports food through the xylem and phloem which are located in the vascular tubes.

When there are lots of vascular tubes bunched together, that is called a vascular bundle. [1]




The vascular bundles in the plant are like the circulatory system in human.

They help in the transportation of water,minerals and manufactured food.

Vascular bundles consist of two types:

1. Xylem which transport water and minerals from the root to the leaf.

2. Phloem which transport manufactured food from the leaf to all plant parts.
