Flower Reproduction

Flower Reproduction - NWMS

Sepal Special leaves that support and protect the flower bud. Located underneath the petals of the flower.
Stamen Male reproductive part of a flower
Filament Thread-like (Stalk part) part of the stamen that connects the anther to the flower.
Anther Structure of a flower that produces pollen grains and includes nectar
Pollen Male plant reproductive cell
Style Tube that carries the pollen in the pistil from the stigma to the ovary
Pistil Female reproductive part of a flower
Stigma Top part of the pistil, where the pollen enters
Ovary Part of the female reproductive organ containing eggs
Eggs Female plant reproductive cell
Seed Fertilized egg
Pollination Transfer of pollen grains from the anther to the stigma of a flower
Fertilization The uniting (joining) of a sperm from pollen grains and eggs from the ovary takes place in this process
Germination The growth of the root through the seed coat, the seedling growing, then the shoot appears and breaks through the soil and the first leaves unfold
Petal Colorful leaves that surround the reproductive parts of a flower
Embryo Young plant in a seed
Thorns Where a plant would have a branch, this defense mechanism would be there instead
Seed Coat Protective covering of a seed before it starts to grow
Petal Colorful part of a flower to attract pollinators
Thigmotropism Plant's response to touch
Hydrotropism Plant's response to water
Gravitropism Plant's response to gravity
Phototropism Plant's response to light
Thermotropism Plant's response to heat
Dormancy When a plant's activity or growth stops over a period of time
Xylem Tubes in a vascular plant that transport water and nutrients from the roots to the rest of the plant
Phloem Tubes in a vascular plant that transport food from the leaves to the rest of the plant
Photosynthesis Process that plants go through to create their own food (glucose)
Transpiration Process where water is evaporation exits the leaves from plants with the help of stomata and guard cells
Respiration Process that plant's go through to release their energy to help them grow and heal
Leaves Where photosynthesis, transpiration, and respiration occur on a plant
Roots Soak up water and nutrients from the soil and stores extra food
Stem Helps support the plant and has the xylem and phloem
Flower Contains the male and female parts of the plant
Taproot One main root with several smaller roots (example: carrot)
Fibrous Root Several roots branch off to create a mass of roots
Thorns Any sharp body part of a plant
Poison Harmful chemical that plants have in stems and leaves
