Flower Function

Plant Reproduction and Life Cycle Review

flowers The reproductive structure of some plants.
germination The early stage of seed growth.
pollination The transfer of pollen from the male part to the female part of a plant.
pollen grains The male reproductive structure of a plant (sperm cells).
seed A structure that contains a young plant in a protective covering.
fertilization The joining of a sperm cell (pollen) and an egg cell (ovule).
sexual reproduction A process that involves two parent plants to form a new organism that differs from the parents.
flower A structure made by some plants to house the seed and attract dispersers.
plant propagation The process of growing new plants from plant parts.
asexual reproduction A process that involves only one parent plant and produces offspring identical to the parent.
pistil female part (stigma + style + ovary)
stamen male part (anther + filament)
anther makes pollen
filament holds up pollen-making part
stigma collects pollen and is sticky
style stalk that contains the pollen tube
ovary contains ovule eggs
ovule egg sex cells (female)
pollen male sex cells
petal scent and color attract pollinators
sepal protects undeveloped or closed flowers
stem supports flower
male gender of anther/filament/stamen
female gender of pistil/stigma/style/ovary
vegetative propagation tubers/runners/roots/stems/leaf cuttings/bulbs
dispersed/sent out method that moves seeds away by wind/water/animals/digestion/bursting/humans
zygote ovule egg + pollen sperm form a(n) ___
seeds pod/fleshy/shell are types of ___
germination 1st life cycle stage (seed sprouts)
plant development 2nd life cycle stage (reproductive structures grow)
fertilization 3rd life cycle stage (ovule + pollen)
seed development 4th life cycle stage (fertilizes ovule becomes ...)
