double fertilization
A mechanism of fertilization in angiosperms, in which two sperm cells unite with two cells in the embryo sac to form the zygote and endosperm.
pressure flow theory
pressure gradient pushes solute-rich fluid to a sink, where the solutes are removed from the phloem

any region of the plant where products are being used or stored
ex: flowers and fruits
Fruit –
In flowering plants, a mature, ripened ovary that often provides protection and dispersal for the enclosed seeds.
Dominant Diploid Sporophyte (independent)
-mature haploid gametophyte not dependent on dominant mature sporophyte
--Brown algae kelp
the organ that bears the ovules of a flower
homologous peroxisomes (connection btwn land plants and green algae)
help to reduce effects of photorespiration
help protect the leaf and give it a fuzzy appearance
Perfect flower-
Has both stamens and carpels. It may be complete or incomplete!
terminal bud
bud at tip of a stem responsible for terminal growth
3 divisions of Bryophytes
1. Bryophyta (mosses) ; 2. Heptophyta (liverworts) ; 3. Anthocerophyta (hornworts)
What stimulates seed germination?
Displacemnt of water followed by the release of gibberellins from the embryo
What are the theories of water movement
capillarity, root pressure and cohesion tension
Transport in vascular plants occurs on these 3 scales.
1. Transport of individual cells2. Transport from cell to cell at tissue and organ level. 3. Transport between xylem and phloem
2. What cell types are in the phloem? Know the characteristics of these different cells.
Phleom cells- The sieve-tube cells lack a nucleus, have very few vacuoles, but contain other organelles such as ribosomes. The sieve tube is an elongated rank of individual cells, called sieve-tube members, arranged end to end. The endoplasmic reticulum is concentrated at the lateral walls. Sieve-tube members are joined end to end to form a tube that conducts food materials throughout the plant. The end walls of these cells have many small pores and are called sieve plates and have enlarged plasmodesmata.The survival of sieve-tube members depends on a close association with the companion cells. All of the cellular functions of a sieve-tube element are carried out by the (much smaller) companion cell, a typical plant cell, except the companion cell usually has a larger number of ribosomes and mitochondria. This is because the companion cell is more metabolically active than a 'typical' plant cell. The cytoplasm of a companion cell is connected to the sieve-tube element by plasmodesmata.
Salicornia virginica
produces gametes
haploid reproductive cell
lateral buds/ meristem
live for many years
signal in signal molecules
-microscopic filamentous green algae
-single spiral chloroplasts in each cell
-contains pyrenoids (small round structures on the chloroplast that store starch)
strong, flexible, polysaccharide that is found in the cell walls of fungi and exoskeletons on insects
haploid stage of plant
gametophyte stage
attraction between molecules of different substances
the part that produces pollen.
Where are companion cells found?
This multipurpose plant of the tropics.
lacking either petals, sepals, stamens or pistils
circadian rythms
internal clocks, 24 hour cycles.
new cells displaced from the meristem
ground tissue- collenchyma
live, thick walled cells
vascular tissue responsible for the transport of nutrients and the carbohydrates produced by photosynthesis
process of moving sugars through phloem
when dissolved in water, releases negatively charged hydroxide ions (OH-)
Multiple flowers arriving from one stem
uses pollen, when seeds develop inside the ovary
a long thin structure that supports the anther
single layer of cells surrounding the pericycle
Angiosperms "vessel seed"
anthophyta: flowering plants ; heterosphorous
Leaflike parts that cover and protect the flower bud
type of meristem for primary growth (lengthening) of plants
vascular cambium
highly vacuolated fusiform initial and ray initial cells.
Long straggly hairs on leaves or stems
threee zones
growth occurs behind root tip in thress zones of cells. zone of cell division, zone of elongation, and zone of maturation.
Growing area of a plant where new cells are produced
plants that can adapt to arid climates such as hot dry climates.
nastic movement
plant movement not necessarily in the direction of a stimulus of involving hormones (based on water)
in a stem the tube that transports water and minerals up from the roots to the rest of the plant
A waxy covering on the surface of stems and leaves that acts as an adaptation to prevent desiccation in terrestrial plants.
ionic bonds
occurs when two ions have opposite charges and they attract and join by ionic bond. Ex: salt
The study of tree ring growth patterns
the stalk which joins the leaf to the stem
guard cells
the two cells that flank the stomata pore and regulate the opening the opening and closing of the stomata
A type of meristemic tissue in woody plants that is located between the xylem and phloem of a plant
vascular cambium
Life Cycles: Alternation of Generations
-gametophyte produces sporophyte and the sporophyte produces the gametophyte and it makes a cycle
Facilitated diffusion –
when materials diffuse from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration through special pathways in the membrane.
What are the members of pea family?
Peas, beans, peanuts, soybean
vascular tissue- phloem
live, thin walled cells used to move glucose
Would a taproot system or a fibrous root system be better for stabalizing an embankment?
