Plant Processes - Baldwin

xylem vessels system of "tubes" in the plant that carries water from roots to other parts of the plant
Phloem-vessels system of "tubes" in the plant that carries the glucose (plant's food) from leaves out to rest of the plan
Pollination when pollen is spread by wind, bees, insects, birds
Fertilization the process by which a seed is formed within the flower (or cone)
Germination the process by which a seed becomes a plant
Seed coat Hard protective cover for embryo
Embryo baby plant
Food supply food stored in seed to support the embryo as it grows into a young plant
Photosynthesis process by which a plant takes in carbon dioxide and water and with the energy from sunlight makes food (glucose) and gives off oxygen
Reactants in photosynthesis Carbon dioxide, water and sunlight
Equation for Photosynthesis Carbon Dioxide + Water + Energy from Sunlight = Glucose + Oxygen
Chloroplasts where photosynthesis occurs in the leaf
chlorophyll pigment which makes the leaf green; pigment which captures energy from sunlight
Glucose sugar which is the food produced by the plant during photosynthesis
stoma (stomata) the opening(s) through which carbon dioxide or water vapor is released and oxygen is taken in by the plant
Transpiration the process by which water vapor is released into the air through the stomata in the plant
Cellular Respiration the process by which plant cells use oxygen to break down food (the glucose) to get energy
Equation for Cellular Respiration Glucose + Oxygen = Carbon Dioxide + Water + Energy (ATP)
Dormancy Inactivity; a period of time when activity in the plant or seed stops due to temperature change or lack of water
Tropism a plant's response to an external stimulus such as sunlight or water
Phototropism a plant's response to light
Geotropism a plant's response to gravity
Hydrotropism a plant's response to water or water source
Thigmotropism a plant's response to touch or contact
