Unformatted text preview: 0 a (If Dr. Julian I. Schroeder . Biology 2 - Multicellular Life 6,? 6,) List and briefly define four major levels of organization of multicellular life. 989%? - tissues: consist of cells of same type 53st - organs = tissues producing a joint function — organ system = groups of organs with shared responsibility - networks = communication and transport systems throughout the body (cg. circulatory system, nervous ersystem) , , , 7 ,, 7 a... - -- — . 7.) Name 5- main types of plant cells and hfigfly describe the function of each. Parenchyrna: carry out most of the metabolism (photosynthesis) in a plant; store starch. Collenchvma; support young plant parts without restraining growth; can elongate with growth (flexible support). Sclerenghma: rigid support, cannot elongate; 2 types: fibers and sclereids. Water—conducting: xylem; 2 types: tracheids and vessel elements. , Sieve-tube members: make up phloem; carry sucrose and other organic compounds. 8.) Explain the process of secondary growth as seen in stems. The layer of cells between the primary xylem and primary phloem becomes meristematic (reproductive). At this point this vascular cambium tissue reproduces new cells to the interior and exterior of the vascular cambium ring. The interior cells differentiate into secondary xylem. The exterior cells differentiate into secondary phloem. 9.) Draw and label a picture that shows assimilation of nitrogen by plants. 10.) How and where arenutrients such as amino acids and sugars transported through a plant? Nutrients such as amino acids and sugars are synthesized in leaves and transported down the stem to the root system through the phloem. Movement is thought to occur (according to the “pressure flow” model) by a low osmotic potential at the top of the phloem system (source) due to the high local concentration of solutes (sugars and amino acids). This draws water into the phloem causing an increase in hydrostatic pressure in the phloem, which forces fluid down the phloem carrying nutrients with it. The nutrients are taken up by cells at the sink (eg. storage roots) such that the pressure gradient from source to sink is maintained and water continues to flow through the phloem. ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
