Chapter 29 (pp.573-579) – Initial land colonization by plants//fungi Learning objectives: • Describe four shared derived homologies that link charophyceans and land plants. • Describe five characteristics that distinguish land plants from charophycean algae. Explain how these features are adaptive for life on land. • Distinguish among the stages of the alternation of generations life cycle • Explain why most bryophytes grow close to the ground. Explain why seedless vascular plants are most commonly found in damp habitats. Chapter 36(pp.738-746) Transport in Vascular Plants • Describe how proton pumps function in transport of materials across plant membranes Define osmosis and water potential. Explain how water potential is measured. • Explain how solutes and pressure affect water potential. • Name the three major compartments in vacuolated plant cells. • Describe three routes available for lateral transport in plants. • Define bulk flow describe the forces that generate pressure in plant vascular tissue. Explain what routes are available to water and minerals moving into the vascular cylinder of the root. • Explain how the endodermis functions as a selective barrier between the root cortex and vascular cylinder.
