Objectives Investigate the effect of low light and high light intensity on the  rate of transpiration from leaves. Investigate the effect of abscisic acid (ABA) on the rate of  transpiration from leaves. Make and view slides of plant root, stem, and leaf sections using  bright field and fluorescence microscopy. Examine epidermal peels under the microscope.

XYLEM Complex vascular tissue through which most of the water and minerals are conducted from the roots to other parts of the plant. Cells are dead.
Background image of page 6
XYLEM ELEMENTS * Vessels : Elongated, cells placed end to end. Walls at end of vessel members are perforated or are completly missing. Found in most angiosperms.

XYLEM ELEMENTS Tracheid : Elongated, thick- walled conducting cells of xylem, characterized by tapering ends and pitted walls without true perforations.

LIGNIN Hard supporting material embedded in the cellulose matrix of plant cell walls. Makes up xylem inner layer of cell (secondary) walls Second most common plant polymer Autofluoresces blue under UV light

Phloem Vascular tissue that  conducts sugars and other  organic molecules from the  leaf to the other parts of  the plant.
Background image of page 10
Sieve tubes Cells of phloem that line up  connecting leaves, shoots, and roots. Cells contain little cytoplasm (which  is continuous between cells) and no  nucleus. Food materials pass from one  element to another via sieve plates  (perforations). Companion cell: a  parenchyma* cell that  controls metabolic activities  of sieve elements.

Root Morphology Epidermis  ( outer tissue absorbs water and minerals  from soil) Cortex  (ground tissue of root, storage parenchyma) Endodermis  (compact cells with no space between  strip) Vascular Cylinder  (xylem & phloem)

Casparian strip : Thickened,  waxy strip that extends around  and seals the walls of  endodermal cells in roots or  plants.  Restricts diffusion of  solutes across the endodermis  into vascular tissues of the root.
