Flashcards in Chapter 4 Deck (15)
the tiny holes on the undersurface of the leaf to take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide.
the process by which plants leak water vapor into the air through the open stomata
double doors that open and close the stoma --- also protects it.
the type of tissue in vascular plants that provides support and conducts water and nutrients from the leaves to the middle structure of the plant
the tissue that conducts food in vascular plants - flows down
the process of taking in oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide
the process by which plants, algae, and some bacteria use sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water to make food.
some cells of the epidermis extending from the root that takes in water.
contain chlorophyll that captures energy from the sun - used to make food and is located on the upper side of the leaf.
a green pigment that captures light energy for photosynthesis.
a nonrenewable energy resource formed from the remains of organisms that lived long ago ---- can be burned to release energy
the process of photosynthesis
carbon dioxide + water - in the presence of chlorophyll and sunlight = glucose + oxygen
the process of burning fossil fuels.
the process of decaying
