Be prepared to label leaves, stems, and roots on different plant specimens, and be able to describe the primary functions of each. Give some examples of highly modified stems, roots, and leaves, and discuss their specialized functions and how they help their plants live in certain environments. How might these have evolved through natural selection? Discuss two ways in which a plant cell could become specialized and differentiated. Describe some changes that occur in a) xylem cells and b) guard cells as each matures and differentiates.
