Krisha Desai ksd597 BIO 206L: Exercise 7 Lab Analysis Please answer the following questions during lab. Keep in mind that you need to work independently. Write in complete sentences, using proper grammar and spelling when an explanation is required. Be complete yet concise in your answers. Submit your report as a pdf file on Canvas before the beginning of next week’s lab. 1)How did you classify each unknown specimen in section 7.1? Explain which features you used to classify each specimen. Specimen A: This specimen is likely a bacterial sample. The cells are small and not complex, so it may be a prokaryote. Specimen C: This specimen is likely cyanobacteria, as seen by the long filamentous structure as well as the greenish color of the bacteria. Specimen D: This specimen is like a monocot. This is due to the parallel veins in the leaves as well as the root structure, which is characteristic of a vascular plant. Specimen E: This specimen is a leaf cross section. This can be determined by the presence of palisade mesophyll cell as well as spongy mesophyll cells with an air space. Specimen F: This specimen is an angiosperm. The particular specimen is a tomato, which is fruit. Angiosperms are vascular plants that produce both flowers as well as fruits. Specimen G: This specimen is a mushroom, as seen by the umbrella like structure of the fungi. Specimen H: This specimen is likely to be classified as a lycophyte. It is a vascular plant due to the root and vascular system presence. The presence of spore bearing structures is what classifies this particular specimen as a lycophyte. Specimen I: The specimen is likely to be part of chloroplasts. This can be concluded due to the green color as well as the circular size, which resembles structures found when viewing chloroplasts under the microscope. Specimen J: This specimen is like to be a gymnosperm. Characteristics used to classify the specimen include its tree-like branching as well as the lack of fruits and flowers. The leaf structure is similar to that of coniferous trees. Specimen K: This specimen is likely to be a protist can be determined as being so due to its flagellation. Specimen L: This specimen is a seedless vascular plant, as seen by the presence of leaves, a stem, and a root system. It can be concluded that xylem and phloem are present due to the presence of a root and stem system. This particular specimen represents that of a fern. Specimen M: This specimen is likely a lichen, which is due to the fact that it is growing on a tree. Lichens are actually a combination of fungi and algae, rather than being a plant. Specimen N: This specimen is like a bryophyte, and is likely a moss. This can be concluded
