1 Bio 1B, Fall ’07 Professor Carlson 2 Germination Germination begins with the uptake of water by the seed which activates enzymes that breakdown stored proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates into smaller molecules to be used by growing regions Gibberellic Acid is a hormone hormone that supports seed germination When the radicle (root) emerges from the seed and begins to push into the ground, germination is complete Seedling is established when photosynthesis commences 3 Germination • Gibberrelic Acid hormone supports seed germination • Abscisic Acid hormone inhibits seed germination and supports seed dormancy 4 5 Primary plant body morphology (Figs. 35.2, 35.8, 35.10, 35.11, 35.12, 35.15, 35.18, 35.29 Lab manual Figs. 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5) •Primary growth results in increase in length of stem axis Growth initiated at tips Apical meristems Shoot apical meristems produce lateral appendages Axillary buds produce lateral shoots or branches that have their own meristem at their tips and grow very much like the primary shoot axis 6 Plant Hormones/Chemical Communication (Table 39.1) Auxin (indole acetic acid) (Campbell Table 39.1, Fig 39.7) Apical dominance by supporting activity of apical meristems Phototropism (shoot growth) Gravitropism (root growth) Stem/cell elongation (Fig. 39.8)
