Conifer needle. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a section through a needle (leaf) from a conifer tree, showing the vascular bundle (large round cluster, centre). The vascular bundle consists of xylem (small yellow openings) and phloem (brown, surrounding the xylem) tissues. Xylem transports water and mineral nutrients from the roots throughout the plant and phloem transports carbohydrates and hormones around the plant. Magnification x160 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
