BIOL 101-509 Sept. 12, 2007 Kidney Bean Lab Report Lab Partners Cristal V, Erica Jeffers Abstract The objective of this experiment is to learn about the growing conditions of beans when grown in light and when grow without light. Each situation will need materials that include a petridish, four kidney beans, filter paper and soil. The overall results show that growth is stimulated in both situations. Introduction Background: Seeds, despite their many different appearances, all have a seed coat, endosperm and embryo. The apical root meristem is responsible for root growth and the apical shoot meristem is responsible for stem elongation. As the embryo digests the endosperms the seedling starts emerging because of the nutrients that are stored in the cotyledon which provide food. Hypothesis: If the kidney bean is given to conditions light and dark, the plant will not germinate in the dark because chloroplast is essential to plant growth. Methods
