  • Rate

A layer of cells that divide and differentiates into xylem and phloem and are responsible for growth. The cambium has several functions. In some plants, particularly the woody ones, it produces layers of xylem and phloem which enhances the stem’s diameter. While on other plants, the cambium acts as a healing agent. Additionally, it encourages the secondary growth of roots and stems.
