1

What is the xylem

Dead cells transport water through it

2

What is the phloem

Living cells transport food through out the cells
(Food=phloem)

3

Seeds of the equivalent to a

Fertilized egg

4

What is the main male flower part called

Stamen

5

The main female flower part called

Pistil

6

What are the two parts of the stamen

Anthers and filaments

7

What is the anther

Carry the pollen

8

What is the filament

Support the anther

9

What are the three parts of the Pestil

Stigma style ovary

10

What is the stigma

Sticky surface at the top of the pistil it traps and holds the pollen

11

What is the style

Tubelike structure that holds up the stigma: it leads down to the ovary

12

What is the ovary

Contains the ovules (eggs) after fertilization the ovules become the seeds and provide food

13

What are the petals

Attract pollinators

14

What are the sepals

Green petal like parts of the base of the flower
Protect the developing bud

15

What happens when pollination occurs

Pollen moves from the mail parts to the female parts (anther to stigma/pistil)

Pollen grains land on the stigma and a tiny tube grows from it and it down the style into the ovary

16

What happens when fertilization occurs internally

The fertilized of you will becomes the seed and the ovary becomes the fruit

17

What are angiosperms

Enclosed seed
Abundant
Last to evolve

18

What are gymnosperms

Any vascular plant that reproduces by means of an exposed seed or ovule as opposed to an angiosperm or flowering plant the seeds are enclosed by mature ovaries are fruits
Naked seeds

19

What is the vascular tissue

Water and minerals enter through the root of the plant and move through the vascular tissue
