phlo·em

(flō′ĕm′)
A tissue in vascular plants that conducts food from the leaves to the other plant parts. Phloem consists primarily of tube-like cells that have porous openings. In mature woody plants it forms a sheath-like layer of tissue in the stem, just inside the bark. See more at cambium, photosynthesis. Compare xylem.
