Plant Classification Terms Angiosperm - A vascular flowering plant in which seeds are enclosed inside of protective ovaries. Apical meristem - Regions located at the tips of roots and shoots, wherein cells undergo rapid mitotic division and allow for the vertical, primary growth of the plant. Apoplast - The pathway from the root surface to the core by which water moves along cell walls and through intercellular spaces, bypassing the cells themselves. Archegonium - The female sex organ of terrestrial plants; where egg cells are produced. Bryophyte - A lower terrestrial plant (often a moss or liverwort) that lacks a vascular system and is dependent on environmental moisture for reproductive and nutritive functions.

Unformatted text preview: Companion Cell - A cell, found in the phloem of vascular plants, that is closely associated with one or more sieve elements. Cork Cambium - Along with vascular cambium a type of lateral meristem, the cork cambium is located just inside the cork (bark)covering of a woody stem. As the plant shoot or root grows in width, the cork cambium produces more cork to serve as protective covering for the plant. Cotyledon - An leaf characteristic of angiosperm embryos; monocot embryos have one, and dicot embryos have two. Cross-pollination - The process, occurring in most angiosperms, by which the male gametes of one plant (carried by pollen grains) fertilize the eggs of another....
