Here is your short essay on Cambium

ADVERTISEMENTS:

Cambium is a type of meristematic cells. This is a thin strip of primary meristem lying in between xylem and phloem.

Cambium originates from pro-combium. It is a meristematic tissue and possesses most of the characteristics of cells constituting a meristem.

It usually consists of a few layers of thin-walled and roughly rectangular living cells. The nucleus is comparatively large. Cells of cambium are in a state of active division. Cambium cuts off xylem on one side and phloem on the other side.

ADVERTISEMENTS:

Cambium restricted to vascular bundles and lying in between xylem and phloem is known as fascicular cambium. A strip of cells adjoining fascicular combium between the vascular bundles is known as inter fascicular cambium.

Cambium developing in the cortex of stem is known as phellogen or cork-cambium. Cambium is responsible for secondary growth in thickness of the plant Body.
