Caption: Xylem plant cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of xylem cells from a bog myrtle (Myrica gale). The xylem transports water and mineral nutrients from the roots throughout the plant. The walls of the xylem vessels are strengthened with lignin, a woody substance that helps to support the plant.
