Bio-Unit5-Plants and Reproduction

TermDefinition
anaphase a phase of mitosis and meiosis in which the chromosomes separate
asexual reproduction reproduction that does not involve the union of gametes and in which a single parent produces offspring that are genetically identical to the parent
autosome any chromosome that is not a sex chromosome
chromosomes in a eukaryotic cell, one of the structures in the nucleus that are made up of DNA and protein; in a prokaryotic cell, the main ring of DNA
cytokinesis the division of the cytoplasm of a cell; cytokinesis follows the division of the cell's nucleus by mitosis or meiosis
interphase the period of the cell cycle during which activities such as cell growth and protein synthesis occur without visible signs of cell division
metaphase one of the stages of mitosis and meiosis, during which all of the chromosomes move to the cell's equator
mitosis in eukaryotic cells, a process of cell division that forms two new nuclei, each of which has the same number of chromosomes
prophase the first stage of mitosis and meiosis in cell division; characterized by the condensation of the chromosomes
sex chromosome one of the pair of chromosomes that determine the sex of an individual
telophase the final stage of mitosis or meiosis, during which a nuclear membrane forms around each set of new chromosomes
plant multicellular eukaryote that produces its own food through photosynthesis
vascular system collection of specialized tissues in some plants that transports mineral nutrients up from the roots and brings sugars down from the leaves
pollination the transfer of pollen from the male reproductive structures (the anthers) to the tip of the female reproductive strcture (the pistil) of a flower in angiosperms or to the ovule in gymnosperms
gymnosperm a woody, vascular seed plant whose seeds are not enclosed by an ovary or fruit
angiosperm a flowering plant that produces seeds within a fruit
cotyledon the embryonic leaf of a seed
dermal tissue the outer covering of a plant
ground tissue a type of plant tissue other than vascular tissue that makes up much of the inside of a plant
vascular tissue the specialized conducting tissue that is found in higher plants and that is made up mostly of xylem and phloem
xylem the type of tissue in vascular plants that provides support and conducts water and nutrients from the roots
phloem the tissue that conducts food (sugars, amino acids, and mineral nutrients) in vascular plants
cohesion-tension theory theory that explains how the physical properties of water allow it to move through the xylem of plants
transpiration the process by which plants release water vapor into the air through stomata; also the release of water vapor into the air by other organisms
guard cell one of a pair of specialized cells that border a stoma and regulate gas exchange
domancy a state in which seeds, spores, bulbs, and other reproductive organs stop growth and development and reduce their metabolism, especially repsiration
germination the beginning of growth or development in a seed, spore, or zygote, especially after a period of inactivity
regeneration process by which a new plant can grow from a fragment of a non reproductive structure, such as a root, stem or leaf
vegetative reproduction a type of asexual reproduction in which new plants grow from nonreproductive plant parts
cell cycle pattern of growth, DNA replication, and cell division that occurs in a eukaryotic cell
mitosis in eukaryotic cells, a process of cell division that forms two new nuclei, each of which has the same number of chromosomes
homologous chromosome chromosomes that have the same length, appearance, and copies of genes, although the alleles may differ
autosome any chromosome that is not a sex chromosome
sex chromosome one of the pair of chromosomes that determine the sex of an individual
