Plant with tube-like structures that move minerals, water, and other substances throughout the plant.
a plant that lacks vascular tissue and true roots, stems, and leaves
stem that is soft and green
stem that contains wood and is thick and hard
a small, herbaceous nonvascular plant that is a member of the phylum Bryophyta.
vascular tissue that carries water upward from the roots to every part of a plant
The vascular tissue through which food moves in some plants.
type of thin root that makes up a highly branched root system as is found with grass plants
a plant's single main root that goes deep into the soil like that found in dandelions
a cell with membrane enclosed nucleus and membrane enclosed organelles; protists, plants, fungi, and animals
cells that do not have a nucleus as found in eubacteria and archaebacteria
makes its own food, often by photosynthesis
a kingdom of eukaryotic organisms. They are heterotrophic and digest their food externally, absorbing nutrient molecules into their cells. Yeasts, molds, and mushrooms are examples.
the leaf of a fern
single-celled or simple multicellular eukaryotic organisms that generally do not fit in any other kingdom
The hairlike projections on the outside of cells that move in a wavelike manner
whiplike tails found in one-celled organisms to aid in movement
a tiny, nonliving particle that invades and then reproduces inside a living cell (host)
synthesis of compounds with the aid of radiant energy (especially in plants)
loss of water from a plant through its leaves
small openings on the underside of a leaf through which oxygen and carbon dioxide can move
the female part of the flower
the male reproductive organ of a flower
in seed plants, the female reproductive part that produces eggsand once fertilized, becomes the seed
a flower structure that encloses and protects ovules and seeds as they develop and becomes the fruit
the process by which cells use oxygen to release energy from sugar (glucose)
A flowering plant, which forms seeds inside a protective chamber called an ovary.
seed plant that bears its seeds directly on the surfaces of cones
Pairs of cells that surround stomata and control their opening and closing.
Waxy, protective layer that covers the stems, leaves, and flowers of many plants. Helps prevent water loss.
most inclusive taxonomic group, larger than kingdom; three exist - bacteria, archaea, eukaryota
the process whereby seeds or spores sprout and begin to grow
the plant structure that contains a young plant inside a protective covering
green pigment in plants that absorbs light energy used to carry out photosynthesis
green structure in a plant cell that contains chlorophyll and is where photosynthesis occurs
The main photosynthetic organ of vascular plants.
supporting structure that connects roots and leaves and carries water and nutrients between them
An organ in vascular plants that anchors the plant and enables it to absorb water and nutrients from the soil.
Colorful structures in the flower that attracts pollinators
any of various single-celled fungi that reproduce asexually by budding
a protist that moves using flexible, cytoplasmic pseudopods
The combination of a fungus and either an alga or an autotrophic bacterium that live together in a mutualistic relationship
A plantlike protist that lives primarily in water
