Chapter 8. Phloem.

            The figures presented here were selected to illustrate aspects of phloem, especially the conducting cells  and companion. The legends were written to complement the more complete discussion of phloem presented in Chapter 8 (pages 129 to 140) in the textbook Plant Anatomy by J. D. Mauseth, published by Cummings & Hathaway.
