    Cork cambium forms tissues that form the cork. Do you agree with this statement? Explain.


    Yes, cork cambium forms tissues that form cork. AS the stem continues to increase in girth another meristematic tissue called cork cambium or phellogen develops in cortex region of stem. The phellogen cuts off cells on both sides. The outer cells differentiate into cork or phellem. The inner cells differentiate into secondary cortex or phelloderm. Cork is impervious to water due to suberin and provides protection to underlying tissues.
