Side bud of a plant
The tip of a plant, also called the apical bud.
performs photosynthesis, stores food, and is usually found in flowers.
Support for growing plants. Usually found in stems.
Major support for plants such as tree trunks, bark, and branches. The mature cells are dead. It contains Lingin.
Dermal tissue system
outermost layer, covering and protecting the cell. Waxy coating holds water inside the plant.
Ground tissue system
makes up the bulk of a plant, and fills up the space between epidermis and vascular tissue. Helps with photosynthesis, storage, and support
Vascular tissue system
made of xylem and phloem, provides support and transports water, nutrients, and food through the plant.
Where cells store food and take up water and minerals. Located in the root.
The site of photosynthesis, located in the ground tissue of a leaf. Consists of parenchyma cells.
Pores in between cells
multicellular haploid form in the life cycle of organisms undergoing alternation of generations mitotically produces haploid gametes that unite and grow into sporophyte generation
the spore-producing individual or phase in the life cycle of a plant having alternation of generations
