Cork is the name given to the plant tissue that derives from the phellogen (a type of cambium) and has suberized cell walls. Typically these are found in the ‘bark’ of roots and stems that undergo secondary growth. Suberization also occurs in the Casparian band and in cells immediately below wounds.
