These have 4s, 5s, or multiples
These have 3s or multiples
This is the arrangement of vascular tissues (xylem+Phloem) in stems
These are scattered
These are organized in a circle
The form of the roots varies between dicots and monocots as well.
These have a taproot, aka single large root
These have a fibrous system, aka many fine roots
In plant tissues, three different kinds of these which differ by the nature of cell walls
This ground tissue of plants is most common, they have thin walls used for storage, photosynthesis and secretion
This ground tissue of plants has a thick but flexible cell wall, serves mechanical and support functions
This ground tissue of plants is thicker than the others, provides mechanical support
Plants have dermal tissue
This covers the outside of plant parts and guards cells that surround somata, hair cells, stinging cells, and glandular cells
Aerial parts of plants have epidermal cells that secrete a waxy protective substance called
This tissue of plants consists of xylem of phloem which form bundles
Vascular Tissues (form vascular bundles)
This vascular tissue of plants is important in the conduction of water and minerals, and plays a role in mechanical support
How many cell walls does it have?
Some places in the walls have absences of a second cell wall, called
At maturity, the cells of it are
There are two kinds of xylem cells
These are long and tapered where water passes from one to another through pits
These are shorter and wider, have less or no taper at ends.
A column of vessel elements (xylem cell type) is called a
These are where H2O passes through from one vessel member to the next (lack both 1st and 2nd cell wall). They are an advantage to tracheids
This vascular tissue of plants transports sugar.
It's made of these cells that form fluid-conducting columns
The columns are called
Sieve tube members
Are sieve tube members (cells) living or dead at maturity?
But they lack two things
Pores on the end of each member form areas where the cytoplasm of one cell makes contact with the next cell, called
Nuclei and Ribosomes
Sieve tubes are associated with living parenchyma that lie adjacent to each sieve tube member, called
They are connected by
The seed of plants consists of three things
Storage material (two types)
There are two types of storage material in seeds, what are they?
Endosperm or cotyledons

Apical Meristems (meristematic cells)
Primary Growth (produces primary tissues, 1st xylem and 1st phloem ----> height)
This is the root tip in germination and development, it protects the apical meristem behind

This part makes up the bulk of the root, storage of starch, contains intercellular spaces providing aeration of cells for respiration
This is a ring of tightly packed cells at the inner most portion of the cortex in roots
A band of fatty material (suberin) called _____ creates water impenetrable barrier between cells
Therefore, all water passing through the endodermis must pass through endodermal cells and not between cells, controlling the movement of water
This part of the root makes up tissues inside the endodermis (phloem, xylem, pericycle). The outer part consists of one or several layers of cells
This is the part from which the lateral root arise, inside of it is vascular tissue
Vascular Cylinder (stele)

This is formed from xylem tissues at maturity (dead).
Only the recent ones remain active to transport water, these cells are called
Older xylem cells are located at the center and function only as support, these cells are called
In wood, these result from the alternation of grwoth (active vascular cambium divides) and dormancy due to season in secondary xylem tissue.
The size of the ring tells you...

In the transportation of water, once H2O reaches it endodermis, it can only enter by _______
This is due to ________
It enters into the _____ which is selectively permeable
Once through the endodermis, the _____ pathway takes over to reach the xylem
This process moves water from soil through root and into xylem by a gradient (continuous movement of water out of root by xylem, and high mineral content inside stele)
Osmotic force (root pressure) can be seen as ______, which is formation of small droplets of sap on ends of leaves in the morning
This is the rise of liquids in narrow tubes which contributes to the movement of H2O up the xylem
What forces does it result from?

Adhesion (molecular attraction between unlike substances) between the water and tube
Most water movement in plants is explained by this, it is the MAJOR contributor (above two are minimal)
This concept is part of the cohesion tension theory, the evaporation of water froms plants removes water from leaves causing _____ (tension) to develop within leaves and xylem.
This process is known as
This concept is part of the cohesion theory, the attraction between like substances; within xylem cells they behave as a single polymer like molecule
Part of the cohesion theory, when a water molecule is lost from a leaf by transpiration, it pulls up behind an entire column of water molecules (generated by transpiration, which itself is caused by heat action of the sun)
When stomata are closed , CO2 iS AVAILABLE/UNAVAILABLE to enter leaf
Therefore, photosynthesis CAN/CANNOT occur

Therefore, photosynthesis CAN/CANNOT occur
Two of these surround the stomata, their cell walls are thicker when they border the stomata. They expand when water diffuses in

In high high temps, are stomata open or closed?
If there is a low concentration of CO2 inside the cells of the plant, are the stomata open or closed?
Stomata are open during the DAT/NIGHT. Why?
CO2 is low during daylight because it is used by photosyntehsis. CO2 levels are high at night because of respiration

What hormone achieves this?
How does it move down the zone of elongation to generate growth?
Auxin (produced in apical meristem)
For a stem to grow straight via phototropism, all sides of the apical meristem must be equally
