Xylem (picture will not upload)

The xylem is the vascular tissue in plants that conducts water and dissolved nutrients upward from the root and also helps to form the woody element in the stem. The best known xylem tissue is wood, though it is found throughout the plant. It is  one of the two types of transport tissue in vascular plants, phloem being the other. Its basic function is to transport water, but it also transports some nutrients through the plant.
