Meristem

Meristem

The Meristem region of a plant is where the cells capable of division and growth in plants are. Meristem cells are very small, have a dense cytoplasm, and have few vacuoles. These cells are classified due to their location in the plant as apical, meaning they are located at the root or tips, lateral, in which the meristems are located in the cork and vascular cambia, and intercalary, where the cells are located at internodes or located at stem regions in between the areas where leaves attach. This picture is of meristems located in the apical region.
