Blane Smith Botany 104 October 1, 2007 Ecology Take-Home 1. The four groups of plants that make up the plant kingdom include: Mosses, Ferns and Allies, Gymnosperms, and Angiosperms. Mosses belong to phylum Bryophyta; Ferns and Allies belong to phylum Polypodiophyta; Gymnosperms belong to phylum Pinophyta; and Angiosperms belong to phylum Magnoliophyta. 2. Seed banks are located all over the world. They are designed to protect seeds from extinction and loss of healthy genes. When farmers plant seeds, they usually use seeds from the same mother plant to ensure the same quality in each child plant. Some plants do better in different climates. Therefore, farmers can order quantities of seeds for that particular area. 3. Nutrient loading of Nitrogen in the Chesapeake Bay is a big problem for the entire area. Nitrogen can ruin entire biomes and kill many plants and animals. This is caused by local farmers using fertilizers on their crops. The Nitrogen from the fertilizers run off into local streams and rivers and run into the bay.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
