Caption: Close-up view of a leaf. This is lit to emphasise the veins. Each vein is a vascular bundle, with the xylem and phloem surrounded by a sheath of lignin. The xylem carries water and minerals into the leaf, the phloem takes away the sap, with dissolved sugars produced by photosynthesis, away from the leaf.
