Name: _Corey Goyeneche___________________ Section: _______23_____ Instructor: Michele Thorne BIO 123 Lab Report #16 1. Explain why monocots do not have woody growth. Monocots lock vascular cambium and do not exhibit secondary growth as diocots do (which produces wood and bark). 2. Explain and diagram how stomates open and close. When the stomata is open: There is lots of h20 causing high tugor pressure. This causes an unequal swelling of guard cells causing the stomata to open. When the stomata is closed: There is low h20 causing low tugor pressure. The gaurd cells become flaccid causing the stomata to close. 3. Explain the consequences of removing the apical meristem form a plant. The apical meristem is located at the tip of the stem and at the tip of the root; this is where all primary plant tissues are dervived and is the location of cell division (growth). Removing the apical meristem would cease the plants growth since this is where all the new cells of the plant are formed and are undifferentiated. 4. What do sieve cells do? Why are companion cells important to them?
