Q.2:- Cork cambium forms tissues that form the cork. Do you agree with this statement? Explain.

 

Answer:

Cork cambium is a meristematic tissue which develops in the cortex region of mature stem. Cork cambium is formed to replace the broken epidermal layer of stem. The cells cut off on the outer side by cork cambium become cork. Hence, it can be said that the cork cambium is a tissue which forms cork.
