Flashcards in Biology: Plants Deck (46):
What are the major functions of meristematic tissue?
-unspecialized tissue capable of dividing by mitosis
-found in several locations in the the plant
-responsible for growing new parts of the plant
What type of plant tissue is unspecialized tissue capable of dividing by mitosis?
What type of plant tissue is found in several locations in the plant?
What type of plant tissue is responsible for growing new parts of the plant?
What are the major functions of epidermal tissue?
-forms the protective outer covering
-allows for the exchange of materials and gases into and out of the plant
What type of plant tissue forms the protective outer covering?
What type of plant tissue allows the exchange of materials and gases into and out of the plant?
What are the major functions of ground tissue?
-provides strength and suport in the stem
-stores food and water in the roots
-where photosynthesis occurs in the leaves
What type of plant tissue provides strength and support in the stem?
What type of plant tissue stores food and water in the roots?
What type of plant tissue is where photosynthesis occurs in the leaves?
What are the major functions of vascular tissue?
-moves substances from the roots to the leaves
-transports sugars from the leaves to other parts of the plant
What type of plant tissue moves substances from the root to the leaves?
Vascular Tissue (Xylem)
What type of plant tissue transports sugars from the leaves to other parts of the plant?
Vascular Tissue (Pholem)
Where does photosynthsis occur in a plant?
In ground tissue in the leaves.
What important process occurs in the leaves of a plant?
What is xylem?
Xylem is the type of vascular tissue that moves water and minerals from the roots to the leaves.
What is phloem?
Phloem is the type of vascular tissue that transports sugar from the leaves to the rest of the plant.
What is the written equation for photosynthesis?
Carbon Dioxide + Water ---> Glucose + Oxygen
What is the chemical equation for photosynthesis?
CO2 + H2O ---> C6H12O6 + O2
What does the following equation represent: carbon dioxide + water ---> glucose + oxygen
What is represented by the following equation: CO2 + H2O ---> C6H12O6 + O2
What is photosynthesis?
It is the production of food (glucose) for a plant from carbon dioxide and water.
What is the process called that makes food for a plant?
What is a byproduct of photosynthesis?
What is the primary product of photosynthesis?
What are the four types of plant tissue?
Meristematic, Epidermal, Ground & Vascular
What are the four plant organs?
Roots, Leaf, Stem & Flower
What is the primary function of the roots?
Anchor the plant in soil, collect water and store food.
What plant organ anchors the plant in the soil, collects water and stores food?
What is the primary function of the leaf?
The leaf accomplishes photosynthesis.
What plant organ accomplishes photosynthesis?
What is the primary function of the stem?
Transport water and nutrients throughout the plant and support the leaves and flowers.
What plant organ supports the plant and transports nutrients and water throughout the plant?
What is the primary function of the flower?
The flower is a sex organ, it needs to produce seeds through sexual reproduction.
What plant organs produces seeds through sexual reproduction?
What are stamen?
The male sex organs, they contain pollen which is the male sex cell. Think of the men in stamen.
What are the male sex organs in a plant known as?
What are pistils?
The female sex organs of the flower. Pistil starts with pist, which women usually are.
What are the female sex organs in a plant known as?
What is the stamen composed of?
Anther and Filament
The anther and filament are both parts of what?
What is the pistil composed of?
Stigma, Style and Ovary
The stigma, style and ovary are all parts of what?
How does a flower produce seeds?
Well, when a mommy flower and a daddy flower love each other very much... no, but they just make the pollen and an egg from the ovary unite to become a seed.
