Plant Test Review

TermDefinition
Vascular Plant that has a system that transports food, water, and minerals and offers support for the plant; contains xylem & phloem
Non-Vascular A plant that has no xylem or phloem
Gymnosperm A seed plant that doesn't produce flowers
Angiosperm A seed plant that produces flowers
Root First organ to emerge from a germinated seed; transports water and minerals from soil to the rest of the plant
Stem Main part of plant; produces leaves and provides structure for plant--inside contains a vascular system
Fruit Seed containing ripened ovary of an anthophyte flower; maybe fleshy or dry
Seed Provides an embryo with the food and protection needed for dry environment
Root Cap Tip of the root; provides protection as root forces its way down through soil and particles; directs what directions the roots grow
Root Meristem Tissue made of cells that constantly undergo mitosis; region of root growth
Root Hair Found along the main root; Perform much of the actual work of water and nutrient absorption
Xylem Moves water and minerals from the roots to the rest of the plant
Phloem Moves food (glucose) from leaves to other parts of the plant
Phototropism A plant's growth response to light
Gravitropism A plant's growth response to gravity
Adaptation characteristics that developed over many generations that help an organism survive in an environment and reproduce
