One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The tissue in higher plants that constitutes the vascular system, consisting of phloem and xylem, by which water and nutrients are conducted throughout the plant.
- ‘Long-distance transport of carbohydrate, the major substrate for plant growth, occurs within the phloem vascular tissue.’
- ‘This is the strategy taken by vascular plants, which have special vascular tissues to distribute water throughout their system.’
- ‘More recent examination, however, has shown that the plant does not contain true vascular tissue but has conducting cells more like those found in some mosses.’

- ‘These plants did not have roots or leaves like the plants most common today, and many had no vascular tissue at all.’
