Anatomy of Flowering Plants

Meristematic Tissues (Group B)

  • A tissue is a group of cells having a common origin and performing the same function.

  • On the basis of their ability to divide, plant tissues can be divided into

    • meristematic tissue

    • permanent tissue

Meristematic Tissue

  • Meristems - specialized region of cell division where growth is restricted

  • Primary meristem = Apical meristem + Intercalary meristem

To test your knowledge of this concept, solve the following puzzle



  • Axillary bud − These are buds constituted by some apical meristems left behind during the elongation of stems and leaves. These buds are capable of forming branches and flowers.

  • In course of formation of primary plant body, specific regions of apical meristem produce dermal, ground, and vascular tissues.

  • Following division in both primary and secondary meristems, the new cells so formed lose the capacity to divide and become permanent tissues.

Simple Permanent Tissues


  • Based on the structural differences, plant permanent…
