Blane Smith Botany 104 October 22, 2007 Take Home Test – Unit 2 1. Algal cells have many things in common with plant cells. They both contain chloroplasts which help them with photosynthesis and produce energy. They both are primary produces which means they are eaten by larger animals. Many algal cells live life as a single cell but can also be multicellular. However, both types of cells contain a nucleus which is the most noticeable similarity. Algae are not considered to be part of the plant kingdom because most of them are single cell organisms. However there are exceptions. 2. Ground tissues help with energy transformation, storage, and support. Some cell types found in ground tissues include parenchyma, collenchymas, and sclerenchyma cells. Vascular tissues are used as a water and nutrient conduction system. These tissues include vessel, tracheids, parenchyma, and fiber cells. The last type of plant tissue is dermal. Dermal tissues include only parenchyma cells. They are responsible for covering the plant body and helping to protect the plant itself. 3.
