Heredity Unit 1
|Offspring are created from one parent and are an exact copy of the parent.
|Divide into two identical cells
|An offspring grows out of the parent's body. Not an equal dividing like binary fission.
|Offspring form out of broken off pieces of the parent. Who: Coral, starfish, worms, plants
|The genetic information from two parents is combined to create offspring with unqiue genetic traits.
|Fertilization (egg+sperm) occurs within the femal*except seahorses
|Fertilization occurs outside the female in a watery medium
|Attract pollinators, protect inner structures
|To protect and support flower, keep from drying out
|Provide support; transport water and nutrients, store water and food
|Produces pollen (sperm)
|Stalk holds anther up
|Filament and stalk (male part)
|Sticky part where pollen sticks
|Stalk that supports the stigma
|Where fertilization occurs (pollen and egg equal seed), seeds are formed, turned into fruit
|Hummingbirds, birds, bats, butterflies, and bees Pollinators are attracted by the nectar Pollen attaches to pollinator and brushes the sticky stigma
