PLant Processes

Stomata openings in leaf through which gases like CO2 and O2 pass
Guard Cells surround the stomata and control their opening and closing based on water level, light conditions, and glucose levels
Palisade upper layer of cells in a leaf, responsible for most of the photosynthesis in the leaf
Chloroplasts organelles in plant cells responsible for photosynthesis
Chlorophyll green pigment in plants and some protists and bacteria responsible for absorbing light energy
Photosynthesis the conversion of light energy into chemical energy (glucose) through the use of carbon dioxide and water
Light-dependent Reactions take place in the presence of light; primarily the splitting of water into hydrogen, which is saved by the plant cell, and oxygen, which is released as oxygen gas
Light-independent Reactions take place with or without light energy; carbon dioxide is converted into glucose with the help of enzymes and addition of hydrogen from light-dependent phase
Cellular Respiration series of chemical reactions that convert chemical energy (stored in glucose) into energy form useful to cells.
Internal Stimulus a factor from the inside which causes some change in the life processes of a creature
External Stimulus a factor from the outside which causes some change in the life processes of a creature
Tropism growth in response to a stimulus
Photo refers to light
Thigmo refers to touch
Baro refers to pressure
Gravi refers to gravity
Chemi refers to chemicals
Hormone a chemical released by a creature which controls a life process
Ethylene * ripens fruit * slows growth of terminal buds * controls dropping of leaves and fruit
Abscisic Acid * slows life processes of plant * prevents bud growth during winter months * closes stomata on hot summer days
Gibberellins * promotes seed germination * promotes flowering * speed up life processes * promotes elongation of plant cells
Ctyokinins * promote cell division * promote lateral growth (new branches)
Auxin * causes cell elongation selectively (phototropism) * collects in the shaded and/or bottom parts of stems/roots * suppresses lateral growth (branches)
Photoperiodism a plant's response to the amount of daylight it receives
Long Day Plants produce blossoms when there is less than 12 hours of darkness (during the summer months) {Iris, cabbage, lettuce, carrots}
Short Day Plants produce blossoms when there is more than 12 hours of darkness (during spring or autumn months) {sunflowers, cucumbers, sweet potato, tulips}
Day Neutral Plants produce blossoms independent of how many hours of daylight they receive {dandelion, rhubarb, strawberry, kale}

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
