Caption: Xylem cell. Illustration of a plant xylem cell, showing its internal structure with micro- trabeculae. Non-living xylem, known as tracheids, are elongated and empty cells forming firm-walled tubes for transporting water. Here, a section of a xylem cell is seen. Its hollow interior is filled with microtrabeculae. These microtrabeculae are rod-like outgrowths of the cell wall, that support the cell and prevent it from collapsing. At left, a non-functional mitochondrion (red) is a remnant of living matter in the cell. Small tubes running the length of the xylem vessel serve also in the transport of liquid from roots to stem and leaves.
