I've just seen an ambiguity in my message that could confuse. Instead of
   "The former therefore have veins through which the vital fluids, xylem  and 
phloem [such an apt name!], can flow.",

please substitute

   "The former therefore have veins -- xylem and phloem [such an apt name!] --  
   through which the vital fluids can flow." 

Apologies.
