vascular tissue

n.
The conductive and supportive tissue in vascular plants, consisting of xylem and phloem.

vascular tissue

n
(Botany) tissue of higher plants consisting mainly of xylem and phloem and occurring as a continuous system throughout the plant: it conducts water, mineral salts, and synthesized food substances and provides mechanical support. Also called: conducting tissue

vas′cular tis`sue


n.
plant tissue consisting of ducts or vessels that in the higher plants forms the system (vas′cular sys`tem) by which sap is conveyed through the plant.
