Flashcards in Other [plant anatomy] terms idk (Lab Practical #1) Deck (13):
1

Abundant, least specialized, thin-walled, ground tissue cell type

Used mostly for storage

parenchyma

2

Type of flexible, elongated ground tissue cell with unevenly thickened cell walls

Alive at maturity

Used for organ support

collenchyma

3

Type of ground tissue cell with lignified, tough, thick secondary cell walls

No protoplasts at maturity

Used for mechanical function and support in body structure

(two types: fibers and sclereids)

sclerenchyma

4

Type of parenchyma that can photosynthesize

chlorenchyma

5

Dermal tissue cells that flank and control stomata.

Contain chloroplasts and found on leaf epidermis, some fruits and stems.

Stomata are more numerous on underside of leaves.

guard cells

6

Hairlike, epidermal outgrowths anywhere except roots

trichomes

7

One-way, unbroken transport of water and minerals

Two types: tracheids and vessels

xylem

8

Distinguish tracheids and vessels. Part of what vascular tissue?

Tracheids: tapered overlapping cells

Vessels: continuous, hollow cells

Xylem

9

Two-way carb transport

Two types: sieve cells and sieve-tube members

Phloem

10

Distinguish sieve cells and sieve-tube members. Part of what vascular tissue?

Sieve cells: pores same size

Sieve-tube members: different size pores

Phloem

11

Specialized parenchyma that maintain sieve-tube members

Found only in ANGIOSPERMS

Companion cells

12

Asexual reproductive structure consisiting of algal cells wrapped in hyphae

Soredia

13

Sexual reproductive structures of lichen
