Biology 1442 Final

primary growth -growth from the apical meristems (in buds) -makes it taller and wider
secondary growth -growth from lateral meristems (middle of stem) -makes it thicker (monocots don't have this)
vascular cambium -cylinder of cells responsible for growth
secondary xylem -made up of three rings (shows age/growth and growing season) -inside VC
secondary phloem -outside VC
periderm -in the bark -made of both cork and cork cambium
cork cambium -produces a barrier on the outside of trees for protection
carrier proteins -passive transport -take/move substances with the gradient
selective channels -passive transport -only allows certain substances to pass through
proton pumps -active transport -cations get moved to area of high concentration
osmosis -diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane
hyperosmotic (plasmolysis) -more solutes than water in the solution
hypoosmotic -more water than solutes in the solution
transmembrane route -lateral transport -moves substances across a cell membrane -slowest
symplast route -lateral transport -moves substances through plasmodesmata that connects all cells -second fastest/slowest
apoplast route -lateral transport -moves substances on the outside of the membrane/not in any cell -fastest

pathway of water soil->epidermis->root cortex->xylem
casparian strip -blocks/controls entry into the xylem -suberin
xylem sap -provides water to all cells of the plant -provides nutrients (minerals)
transpiration -pushing water out of the plant -evaporation of water from plants/leaves
guttation -water that gets pushed out of the stomata when it opens in the morning -caused by root pressure (pushing xylem sap)
transpiration-cohesion-tension mechanism -pulls xylem sap
transpiration pull -water molecules stick together by hydrogen bonds so when they evaporate they pull one another upwards
cohesion -water wants to stick to other water molecules
adhesion -water wants to stick to other non-water molecules -fights against gravity
photosynthesis-transpiration compromise -the opening/closing of the stomata (water evaporation and gas exchange) when the prevention of water loss is needed, which makes photosynthesis stop
wilting -not enough water in the shoots/leaves -no turgor pressure

flaccid -guard cells sag -lose potassium -produce abscisic acid
3 cues of stomata opening -light -decrease of CO2 in leaf air space -internal clock of guard cells
3 cues of stomata closing -water deficiency resulting in flaccid cells -mesophyll production of abscisic acid -high temperature

phloem unloading -where the sink is -sometimes active transport (not as important) -sometimes diffusion
photoautotrophic -organisms that carry out photosynthesis to acquire food/energy -plants
macronutrients -nutrients required in large amounts -carbon, oxygen, hydrogen are components of plant's organic compounds -nitrogen makes up nucleic acids, proteins, hormones, etc. -sulfer for proteins and enzymes
micronutrients -nutrients required in small amounts -chlorine which starts the water-splitting step of photosynthesis -iron which is a cofactor in chlorophyll production

loam (soil type) -mix of equal amounts of different particles: gravel/sand, silt, and clay
gravel/sand -large sized particles -minerals don't suspend in them
silt -medium sized particles -some suspension of minerals
clay -smallest sized particles -suspension of minerals/coaxing minerals away from clay (gradient) -have properties of both a solid and a liquid -have negative particles that hold positive particles
fertilizer -puts nutrients back into the soil -nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus
organic fertilizer -no chemical release (pro) -mostly animals feces so there is cross-contamination and not a large supply of it (con)
chemical fertilizer -controls what goes into the soil so there is not much cross-contamination (pro) -produce greenhouse gasses (con)
crop rotation -rotate where certain crops are grown
irrigation -bringing in water from another source to make sure plants have enough water
erosion -the movement of particles by liquids (air/water)
wind breaks -method of preventing erosion -blocks wind by barriers (line of trees, etc.)
terracing -method of preventing erosion -making levels on the side of hills to plant crops/plants on
nitrogen-fixing bacteria -turn gaseous nitrogen into ammonia
ammonifying bacteria -turn organic material into ammonia
nitrifying bacteria -turn ammonium into nitrate?
denitrifying bacteria -turn nitrate into gaseous nitrogen
parasites -take nutrients from their hosts -ex: mistletoe
epiphytes -live on a host but don't take anything from it -ex: spanish moss
carnivorous plants -eat animals/food items -ex: venus flytrap, pitcher plants, sundew plants
mucilage glands -gland in carnivorous plants that produces a digestive enzyme -makes the plant close
alternation of generations -go from haploid in one generation to diploid in the next generation -haploids produce diploids; diploids produce haploids
gametophyte -haploid (n) cell -go through mitosis/fertilization -sexual reproduction -produce gametes
sporophyte -diploid (2n) cell -go through meiosis -asexual reproduction -produce spores
mitosis -division of the nucleus resulting in an exact copy of the original
