plant parts

Vascular Bundlees- -group of tube-like structures in a plant
Parts of the Vascular Bundles... Xylem, Phloem ,Cambium
Xylem- - carries water and minerals from the roots to the top of the plant.
Phloem- -carries sugar and food throughout the plant.
Cambium- -Layer of cells between the xylem and phloem that reproduces to make more xylem and phloem causing the tree to grow wider every year.
Cambium produces what every year. -it produces a new ring every year.
Rings tell what? -They tell the age climate the tree is in, and tree health.
Stem provides what? -It provides support, transportation of food, water, and minerals, some store food, has tuber.
Tuber- -Underground stem that stores food for a plant and can reproduce food. ( example: Potato)
2 types of tubers... - Herbacious, and woody.
Herbacious- -Soft green stem
Woody- -Stiff, wood stem (cambium cells produce bark)
Roots do what? -They anchor the plant, support the stem,absorbs water and nutrients and transports them,affects size and health of the plant, has primary root.
Primary root- -First root that emerges from seed.
3 types of roots... Tap root, fiborous roots, arial roots.
Tap root- Thick, long root that grows straight down into the soil (root hairs absorb water and nutrients)
Fiborous roots- -Thin root that grows out in all directions when primary root stops growing.
Arial root- Never touch soil (absorbs moisture from the air)
Plants with arila roots are usually called- They are called parasites.
Sepal- -protects the flower bud until its ready to open.
Stamen- male part of the flower that is a thick stalk with a knob-like structure at the top.
Anther- -knob-like structure at the top of the stamen that produces pollen.
Pistal- -female part of the flower that is located in the center of the flower.
Ovary- -bottom of the flowers pistil that contains 1 or more ovules (where the plant eggs are produced)
Style- -Long, slender stalk that connects the ovary to the top of the pistil.
Stigma- - sticky tip of the pistil that pollen grains stick to
Plants are pollinated by- -by wind, insects bees and other animals
Insect and bees land on stigma and collect ___ on their body. -They collect pollen.
Cross-pollination- -Transferring of pollen from the anther of one flower to the stigma of another flower.
Self-Pollination- -pollen is transferred from the anther to the stigma of the same flower or to another flower of the same plant.
Fertilization- process of a male cell uniting with the female egg cell to form a ygote.
After fertilization, the petals____ ___ and the ____ begins to grow. Fall off, zygote.
Zygot develops into a ___ Embryo, tiny new plant
Ovule become the ___ ___. Seed coat ( outer covering)
Ovary develops int a __- Fuit.
Types of fruit. 1.Fleshy fruit 2. dry-fruit.
Fleshy fruit- -seeds embedded in their outside flesh (example: strawberry)
Dry fruit- -nuts,corn grains
Germination- -seeds sprout
life cycle of a conifer (seeds in cones) 1.wind blows pollen from male cone to the slightly open scales of a female cone(each cone can only be pollinated by pollen from its own species) 2.scales of female cone close 3.egg is fertilized by pollen in the ovule
life cycle of a conifer continued 4.Ovule develops into the seed and matures 5. Scales open and seed are dispersed by the wind.
