In vascular plantsphloem is the living tissue that carries organic nutrients (known as photosynthate), in particular, sucrose,a sugar, to all parts of the plant where needed. In trees, the phloem is the innermost layer of the bark, hence the name, derived from the Greek word (phloios) meaning "bark". The phloem is concerned mainly with the transport of soluble organic material made during photosynthesis. This is called translocation.Phloem tissue consists of: conducting cells, generally called sieve elements; parenchyma cells, including both specialized companion cells or albuminous cells and unspecialized cells; and supportive cells, such as fibres and sclereids.

Xylem is one of the two types of transport tissue in vascular plants, phloem being the other. The word xylem is derived from theGreek word (xylon), meaning "wood"; the best-known xylem tissue is wood, though it is found throughout the plant.The basic function of xylem is to transport water, but it also transports some nutrients.The most distinctive xylem cells are the long tracheary elements that transport water. Tracheids andvessel elements are distinguished by their shape; vessel elements are shorter, and are connected together into long tubes that are called vessels.Xylem also contains two other cell types: parenchyma and fibers.
