1

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

2

What type of plant tissue is unspecialized tissue capable of dividing by mitosis?

Meristematic Tissue

3

What type of plant tissue is found in several locations in the plant?

Meristematic Tissue

4

What type of plant tissue is responsible for growing new parts of the plant?

Meristematic Tissue

5

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

6

What type of plant tissue forms the protective outer covering?

Epidermal Tissue

7

What type of plant tissue allows the exchange of materials and gases into and out of the plant?

Epidermal Tissue

8

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

9

What type of plant tissue provides strength and support in the stem?

Ground Tissue

10

What type of plant tissue stores food and water in the roots?

Ground Tissue

11

What type of plant tissue is where photosynthesis occurs in the leaves?

Ground Tissue

12

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

13

What type of plant tissue moves substances from the root to the leaves?

Vascular Tissue (Xylem)

14

What type of plant tissue transports sugars from the leaves to other parts of the plant?

Vascular Tissue (Pholem)

15

Where does photosynthsis occur in a plant?

In ground tissue in the leaves.

16

What important process occurs in the leaves of a plant?

Photosynthesis

17

What is xylem?

Xylem is the type of vascular tissue that moves water and minerals from the roots to the leaves.

18

What is phloem?

Phloem is the type of vascular tissue that transports sugar from the leaves to the rest of the plant.

19

What is the written equation for photosynthesis?

Carbon Dioxide + Water ---> Glucose + Oxygen

20

What is the chemical equation for photosynthesis?

CO2 + H2O ---> C6H12O6 + O2

21

What does the following equation represent: carbon dioxide + water ---> glucose + oxygen

Photosynthesis

22

What is represented by the following equation: CO2 + H2O ---> C6H12O6 + O2

Photosynthesis

23

What is photosynthesis?

It is the production of food (glucose) for a plant from carbon dioxide and water.

24

What is the process called that makes food for a plant?

Photosynthesis

25

What is a byproduct of photosynthesis?

Oxygen

26

What is the primary product of photosynthesis?

Glucose

27

What are the four types of plant tissue?

Meristematic, Epidermal, Ground & Vascular

28

What are the four plant organs?

Roots, Leaf, Stem & Flower

29

What is the primary function of the roots?

Anchor the plant in soil, collect water and store food.

30

What plant organ anchors the plant in the soil, collects water and stores food?

The Roots

31

What is the primary function of the leaf?

The leaf accomplishes photosynthesis.

32

What plant organ accomplishes photosynthesis?

The Leaf

33

What is the primary function of the stem?

Transport water and nutrients throughout the plant and support the leaves and flowers.

34

What plant organ supports the plant and transports nutrients and water throughout the plant?

The Stem

35

What is the primary function of the flower?

The flower is a sex organ, it needs to produce seeds through sexual reproduction.

36

What plant organs produces seeds through sexual reproduction?

The Flower

37

What are stamen?

The male sex organs, they contain pollen which is the male sex cell. Think of the men in stamen.

38

What are the male sex organs in a plant known as?

Stamen

39

What are pistils?

The female sex organs of the flower. Pistil starts with pist, which women usually are.

40

What are the female sex organs in a plant known as?

Pistils

41

What is the stamen composed of?

Anther and Filament

42

The anther and filament are both parts of what?

Stamen

43

What is the pistil composed of?

Stigma, Style and Ovary

44

The stigma, style and ovary are all parts of what?

Pistil

45

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.

46

What is a seed surrounded by flesh called?

Fruit
