Structures and functions of parenchyma tissues

– occur in roots and shoots
– relatively unspecialized/and dominant
– retain ability to undergo meristematic/actively dividing activity
– have thin primary walls
– no secondary walls
– have large vacuoles surrounded by peripheral cytoplasm
– mainly functions in storage of nutrients and water
– but when turgid, parenchyma tissue is important in giving support and shape to the plant.
