Blane Smith Biology 104 September 11, 2007 Botany: Lab Report 1 P During our last lab session, we were introduced to all of the main plant parts as well as plant propagation. We learned the differences between the Dicot plant body and the Monocot plant body. Cotyledons are one of the main visual differences between Dicots and Monocots . A Dicot plant has two Cotyledons and a Monocot only has one. During the lab, we were told to pick a pea seedling and a young corn pant and to draw and label all of the major parts. During this process, I learned that Dicots have a netted vein system and Monocots veins run parrellel with each other. In this lab, we also learned about plant propagation. This process included cutting and planting a Begonia from the stem, planting a potato "eye", and submerging an Afican Violet leaf petiole in water. These experiments are all

Unformatted text preview: supposed to show signs of asexual reproduction in plants. We also conducted a experiment to show the growth rate of Duckweed. U The procedures in this lab were actually quite simple and I understood all of the plant parts and what we had to do with them. The only doubt that I had during this lab was the Duckweed count for week two. In our jars of pond water, only one plant had seemed to reproduce. This means there could have easily been a mistake with the original Duckweed count. N From this lab, I have learned all of the main differences between Dicots and Monocots as well as how plants reproduce and how they do it. I've learned that Dicots use Photosynthesis to get their energy as seedlings and Monocots use stored energy in the seed called Endosperm which is very rich in protein....
