Caption: Maize stem. Light micrograph of a section through a maize plant stem (Zea mays). Vascular bundles (coloured clusters) can be seen containing xylem (larger openings, red/black) and phloem (smaller openings, light blue) tissues. Xylem transports water and mineral nutrients from the roots throughout the plant, while phloem transports carbohydrates and plant hormones around the plant. Magnification: x44 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
