9. Name the three basic tissue systems in the flowering plants. Give the tissue names under each system.
The three basic tissue systems in the flowering plants include epidermal tissue system, ground tissue system and vascular tissue system.
1. Epidermal tissue system- It forms the outermost covering of whole plant body. It consists of tissues like epidermis, stomata, epidermal appendages (trichomes and hairs) etc.
2. Ground tissue system- All the tissue between the epidermis and vascular bundle forms the ground tissues. It consists of simple permanent tissues like parenchyma, sclerenchyma, collenchyma, mesophyll etc. It includes pericycle, cortex, pith and medullary rays
3. Vascular tissue system- The vascular tissue system consists of complex tissues, xylem and phloem that together form vascular bundles.
