Adaptation A change or the process of change by which an organism or species becomes better suited to its environment.
Alternation of generations The occurrence in one life history of two or more different forms differently produced, usually an alternation of a sexual with an asexual form. The alternation of two or more different forms in the life cycle of a plant or animal.
Colonial A colony refers to individual organisms of the same species living closely together, usually for mutual benefit, such as stronger defense or the ability to attack bigger prey.
Dicots A group of flowering plants belonging to the class Magnoliopsida of Angiospermae (angiosperms), characterized by having two photosynthetic cotyledons in the seed that may emerge from the ground when the seed germinates.
Enclosed seeds Enclosed seeds are produced by angiosperms. Their ovules are enclosed by an ovary, a structure within the flower. As the seed ripens, the ovary enlarges and forms a fruit, which provides some protection for the developĀ­ing seed.
Flowers The seed-bearing part of a plant, consisting of reproductive organs (stamens and carpels) that are typically surrounded by a brightly colored corolla (petals) and a green calyx (sepals).
Fruit The sweet and fleshy product of a tree or other plant that contains seed and can be eaten as food.
Leaves A flattened structure of a higher plant, typically green and bladelike, that is attached to a stem directly or via a stalk. Leaves are the main organs of photosynthesis and transpiration.
Monocots A flowering plant with an embryo that bears a single cotyledon (seed leaf). Monocotyledons constitute the smaller of the two great divisions of flowering plants, and typically have elongated stalkless leaves with parallel veins.
Multicellular (Of an organism or part) having or consisting of many cells.
Pollen a fine powdery substance, typically yellow, consisting of microscopic grains discharged from the male part of a flower or from a male cone.
Roots The part of a plant that attaches it to the ground or to a support, typically underground, conveying water and nourishment to the rest of the plant via numerous branches and fibers.
Seeds A flowering plant's unit of reproduction, capable of developing into another such plant.
Stems The main body or stalk of a plant or shrub, typically rising above ground but occasionally subterranean.
Unicellular Having or consisting of only one cell.
Vascular tissue The tissue in higher plants that constitutes the vascular system, consisting of phloem and xylem, by which water and nutrients are conducted throughout the plant.
