Dear student,
Stele is the term used in case of vascular plants. It refers to central part of root and stem containing all the tissues derived from procambium.Stele contains vascular tissues and also ground tissue such as pith if present and pericycle as outermost boundary. In other words, we can refer stele as all the tissues such as pericycle, pith, vascular bundle on the inner side of endodermis in case of roots of the plant. Vascular bundle is the longitudinal arrangement of the strands of conducting tissues i,e xylem and phloem and sometimes cambium in the roots and stems of plant. These are the part of vascular tissues and form chief conducting parts of the plant.
