angiosperm

a flower-producing vascular plant in which the seed is enclosed in a fruit, such as an apple.

auxin

a plant hormone that causes plant stems and leaves to grow or bend toward light.

Cambium

vascular plant tissue that produces new xylem and phloem cells.

Cone

The conical fruit of the pine (aka pinecone)

Cotyledon

The primary leaf of the embryo of seed plants.

Cuticle

A waxy protective layer on the stems and leaves of land plants that helps the plant converse water.

Dicot

An angiosperm having two seed leaves inside its seed. Ex) Maple tree

Embryo

fertilized egg during early growth, in humans, an unborn child during the 1st two months of pregnancy.

Flower

The part of the seed plant comparing the reproduce organs.

Frond

The leaf of a fern.

Fruit

The edible part of a plant developed from a flower.

Gametophyte

The sex-cell producing stage of a plant's life cycle.

Gymnosperm

Vascular plant that produces seeds on the scales of female cones such as pine cones.

Germination

To develop into a plant as a seed/spore/bulb.

Hydroponics

Cultivation of plants by placing the roots into liquid nutrients rather than soil.

Monocot

Angiosperm having a single seed leaf inside its seed. Ex) An orchid

Nonvascular

Plant lacking vascular tissue; it absorbs water directly through its cell membrane.

Ovary

In angiosperm, the swollen base of the pistil, where ovules form, in female animals the organ produces ova, or egg cells.

Ovule

Female reproductive part of a plant that produces the egg.

Petal

One of the colored segments of a corolla of a plant.

Phloem

Vascular plant tissue made up of tubular cells that move food from leaves and stems to other parts of the plant for use or storage.

Pistil

The female reproductive organ of a flower.

Pollen

The male reproductive part of a plant that contains the sperm.

Pollination

Process that transfers pollen grains from the stamen to the stigmas.

Rhizoid

Rootlike filament containing only a few long cells; it holds moss plants in place.

Root Cap

A thimble shape mass of cells that cover and protects the root tip of plants.

Seed

The fertilized mature ovula of a flowers plant.

Sepal

One of the individual leaves or parts of the calvx of a flower.

Sporophyte

The spore forming stage of a plants life cycle.

Stamen

The male reproductive organ of a flower.

Stomata

Small pores in the surface of a plant leaf that allows carbon dioxide water and oxygen to enter and leave.

Transpiration

Loss of water vapor through the stomata of a leaf in plants.

Tropism

The response of a plant to a stimulus.

Vascular Tissue

The supportive and conductive tissue in plants, consisting of xylem and phloem.

Xylem

Vascular plant tissue made up of tubular vessels that transport water and minerals from the roots up through the plant.
