Page 8 Meristems Meristems Meristem - discrete regions or groups of cells that possess continued cell division for the life of the plant or that organ. Page 8 Types of Growth: 1. Primary Growth Types Primary Growth - growth in length that gives rise to primary (herbaceous) tissues called the primary plant body. Two Types of Meristems Give Rise to Primary Growth: 1. apical meristem or apex the growing points located at the tips of stems and roots. 2. intercalary meristem - the growth region at the base of grass leaves that causes leaves to elongate. Page 8 Types of Growth: 2. Secondary Growth Types Secondary Growth - growth in width or diameter that gives rise to secondary (woody or corky) tissues called the secondary plant body. Secondary growth is due to lateral meristems. lateral meristem - meristematic regions along the sides of stems and roots. Two Types of Lateral Meristems Give Rise to Secondary Growth 1. vascular cambium or cambium - a sheetlike meristem between the bark and wood along the sides of woody stems and roots; it gives rise to secondary xylem (commonly called wood) on the inside and secondary phloem on the outside. cork cambium or phellogen - gives rise to the periderm (commonly called bark). 2.

Page 11 Stem Morphology Stem leaf scar - a scar marking the former point of attachment of a leaf or petiole to the stem. node - part of stem marking the point of attachment of leaves, flowers, fruits, buds and other stems. internode - the part of the stem between nodes. the lenticel - rough areas on stems (and some fruits, ex. apple) composed of loosely packed cells extending from the cortex through the ruptured epidermis; serve as "breathing pores" for gas exchange. Only occur on young stems. growth rings - bud scale scars from the last terminal bud; they denote flushes of growth (usually per year). Can be used to age stems because usually 1 set of growth rings is produced per year on temperate trees in the Temperate Climatic Zone. temperate Page 12 Stem Anatomy: Dicots and Gymnosperms Dicots Primary Growth Vascular bundles are arranged as a ring between the cortex and pith. The pith and cortex are usually comprised of parenchyma cells. Inside each vascular bundle, the phloem is orientated towards the outside and xylem towards the inside of the stem. The outer surface is covered by the epidermis. Secondary Growth Remnants of the pith occur in the center, surrounded by rings of xylem (one ring for every year), then the cambium. The phloem is ridged (dilated). Rays transverse the xylem and extend into the phloem (where they dilate). The outer surface is covered by the periderm or bark, which occurs as irregular layers. Page 13 Stem Anatomy: Monocots Stem Primary Growth The vascular bundles are The randomly scattered in the ground tissue (usually comprised of parenchyma cells). Each vascular bundle is surrounded by a bundle sheath and contains xylem orientated towards the inside and phloem towards the outside of the stem. The outer layer is epidermis. outer Page 13 Root Anatomy Root Primary Growth Root anatomy is virtually the same for monocots, dicots and gymnosperms. The vascular tissue occurs in the center, which is surrounded by two rings of cells, the pericycle and endodermis, then the cortex and epidermis. The cell walls of the endodermis that are perpendicular to the root surface (i.e. the radial and anticlinal walls) are sealed by a suberized band called the Casparian strip. Root hairs are extensions of the epidermal cells. hairs Secondary Growth Similar to stem secondary growth. Woody root has remnants of xylem instead Similar of pith of Page 14 Leaf Morphology: Simple Leaf Leaf tip - the terminal point of the leaf blade or lamina - the flattened, green, expanded portion of a leaf. margin - edge of a leaf. midrib - the most prominent central vein in a leaf. lateral veins - secondary veins in a leaf. petiole - the leaf stalk (connects blade to stem). stipules - leaf-like appendages (at the base of petiole of some leaves). Page 14 Leaf Morphology: Compound Leaf Leaf leaflet - secondary leaf of a compound leaf. rachis - an extension of the petiole bearing leaflets. petiolule - the leaflet stalk. petiole - the leaf stalk. stipules - leaf-like appendages (at the base of the petiole of some leaves). Page 14 Leaf Morphology: Leaf Arrangement Leaf alternate - one leaf attached per node, usually staggered (spiral) along stem. opposite - two leaves (a pair) attached per node, usually opposite each other. whorled - three or more leaves attached per node, usually equally spaced around the node. around Page 15 Plant Morphology: Leaf Venation pinnate feather-like, net venation with lateral veins extending from a central midrib (dicots - ex. elm, oak) palmate finger-like, net venation with several major veins diverging from the union of the petiole and the leaf blade (dicots - ex. maple) parallel principal veins parallel to the axis of the leaf (monocots - ex. grasses). Page 15 Plant Morphology: Leaves simple Leaf consists of one blade pinnately compound leaflets arising from along both sides of the rachis (ex. rose, pecan). palmately compound leaflets all arising from the same location at the top of the petiole (ex. buckeye, schefflera, poison ivy, bean).

Spongy parenchyma a) Contains large air spaces b) Specialized for gas exchange - because of the large air space and more stomata occur in the epidermis of lower leaf surface. Page 17 Function of Leaf Parts: Mesophyl Function Sun Grown Maple Leaf Shade Grown Maple Leaf Sun Grown Leaf Thicker, due to thicker palisade parenchyma layer Smaller size Shade Grown Leaf Thinner, due to thinner palisade parenchyma layer, therefore, higher proportion of spongy mesophyll. Larger size Softer and more pliable Images from http://www.lima.ohio-state.edu/biology/archive/leaves.html Pages 19 & 20 Plant Morphology: Flowers Plant flower - the reproductive organ of higher plants (e.g. angiosperms or flowering plants), which contains at least 1 female reproductive part, the pistil, and/or 1 male reproductive part, the stamen.

When light passes through a leaf, more blue, orange and red wavelengths are removed by chlorophyll and carotenoids and more green-yellow and far red wavelengths are transmitted. Therefore, the shade of a tree is richer in green-yellow and far red wavelengths. Plants are partially "color blind" to the light in the shade. partially Page 25 Effect of Light Quality on Photosynthesis 2 Effect Light Quality from Artificial Light Sources Artificial lights emit different wavelengths (colors) of visible light. Fluorescent light are highest in the blue and yellow-orange region of the spectrum. Incandescent (tungsten) lights are poor in the blue region, moderate in the green region, high in the red and far red region of the spectrum, with up to 50% of their output in the infra red region (that's why they're hot). Red light triggers flower formation Blue light triggers leaf formation Page 26 Effect of Light Quantity Effect Relationship between Light Intensity and Rose Yield (From: K. Post and J.E. Howland. Proc. Amer. Soc. for Hort. Sci. 47:446-450, 1946) Page 27 Respiration Respiration Breaks down glucose and releases energy C6H12O6 + 6 O2 => 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + 38 ATP => Respiration using oxygen releases the most energy Respiration However the theoretical release of 38 ATP is never attained because the process itself uses energy. Net gain has been estimated at 28 to 30 ATP gain Some energy can be obtained without oxygen, but Some resulting compounds may be toxic resulting Plants growing in low oxygen environments Plants (wetlands plants) have adapted and use different respiration pathways Page 27 Respiration: Glycolysis Respiration: 1st Respiration Reaction Reaction Does not require Does oxygen for reaction reaction Occurs in cytosol Glucose (6C) Glucose broken into 2 pyruvic acid (3C) molecules molecules Energy (2 ATP) Energy produced only in the presence of oxygen oxygen + i Glucose + 2 NAD + 2 P + 2 ADP → Glucose NAD 2 Page 27 Respiration: Anaerobic Fermentation Respiration: 2nd Respiration Reaction in absence of oxygen absence Occurs in cytosol Pyruvic acid (3C) Pyruvic broken into 1 CO2 broken and 1 ethanol (2C) molecule (2C) Produces very Produces limited energy limited glucose → 2 ethanol + 2 CO2 + 2 ATP Page 27 Respiration: Krebbs Cycle Respiration: 2nd Respiration Reaction in presence of oxygen Occurs in mitochondrion Occurs matrix matrix Pyruvic acid (3C) broken Pyruvic into 3 CO2 into Recycles 4C acid Occurs in concert with the Occurs cytochrome system to release energy release Page 27 Respiration: Cytochrome System Respiration: Respiration Respiration Reaction Concurrent with the Krebs Cycle the Occurs in inner Occurs membrane of mitochondrion mitochondrion Hydrogen Hydrogen remaining from glucose molecule is bound with oxygen and this releases energy releases Page 28 Factors Affecting Respiration Factors Important for storage and transport.
