RhizoidLeaf-likeStructureAntheridiumArchegoniumQuestionsA.When visualizing moss, a low-lying soft green plant may come to mind. Would thisvisualization reflect the gametophyte, sporophyte, or rhizoid?B.When you viewed the leaf-like structures under the microscope, did you see evidence ofvascularization? Describe what you observed.C.Moss has a great number of leaf-like structures over a small area. How does thisarrangement assist the leaves in interacting with their environment?D.Why are rhizoids not considered true roots?
E.Where is the sperm housed? Where are the eggs housed? What conditions must exist forthe sperm to reach the egg?F.Compare and contrast the view of anatomical features with the magnifying hand lens andthe microscope. Where you able to identify more structures with the magnifying hand lensor the microscope? Was the level of detail you observed greater with the magnifying handlens or the microscope?Exercise 3: Advanced Plant AdaptationsData Table 5.Cone and Strobili Size.Plant name:12345AverageConeStrobilusQuestionsA.Describe the similarities and differences between gymnosperms and angiosperms. Why areconifers classified as gymnosperms and not angiosperms?B.In a conifer, where does the union of the egg and sperm occur? How does sperm reach theegg?C.Describe the structure and shape of the conifer needle. What is the role of the coniferneedle? How does its structure help conserve water?D.What purpose do the root hairs serve? What purpose does the tap root serve?E.What is the function of the seed coat? What is the benefit of the stored carbohydrates inthe seed?F.What generation, sporophyte or gametophyte, does the embryo of a seed represent?
