taproots deep roots that have tiny hairs to absorb water and nutrients
Roots Absorbs water and minerals from the ground. Anchors plant in ground.
TRANSPIRATION Evaporation of water from the leaves of a plant
Stems Carry substances between roots and leaves; provide support for plant; holds leaves up to sunlight
xylem vascular tissue that carries water upward from the roots to every part of a plant
phloem the vascular tissue in plants that conducts sugars and other metabolic products downward from the leaves.
herbaceous non woody
woody hard and rigid
Photosynthesis 6CO2 + 6H2O + light
leaves Photosynthetic organ of the plant, used to convert sunlight into food

Biennials takes two growing seasons to complete, it reproduces in the second growing season
MERISTEMS Plants grow only at their tips in regions called
PRIMARY GROWTH makes a plant taller at roots and stems
SECONDARY GROWTH makes a plant wider, or adds woody tissue
Rings tree ______ tell the age of a tree, each ring represents a growing season. The photo shows a tree who has been through four growing seasons. The lighter thinner rings are winter periods.
VASCULAR ________ cambium area of the tree that makes more xylem and phloem and forms the annual rings
