As the title says. My biology teacher told us this but I have a feeling it isn't right (she tends to make up random stuff). Obviously this is aside from xylem cells because they're dead, but are all other plant cells stem cells? I couldn't find anything online...

Thanks very much!

Definitely not true. Wikipedia has an article on stem cells in plants. They may have more or more easily accessible stem cells than animals though, i wouldn't know.

I have looking for stem cells for plants and have found out, that plants have stem cells indeed. The meristematic cells of the plants which exist in the shoot and in the root have an analogous behavior and function like stem cells.

Here is a Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meristem
