A plant that flowers and produces a fruit to release it's seeds.
Function of the Roots
To obtain water and minerals from the ground and to anchor the plant to the ground
Function of the stem (in general)
To support the plant, store food, and allow the movement of materials.
Function of the Xylem
A dead tube-like vessel that carries water and minerals absorbed by the roots throughout the plant. It supplies the leaves with water, used in the chemical reaction of photosynthesis.
Function of the Phloem
The Phloem is a livign tube-like vessel that carries the food made during photosynthesis throughout the plant. It carries the food made during the process of photosynthesis to other parts of the plant.
It is used to create pollen for the pistil to obtain in order to create a seed. It is made up of the anther and the filament.
It is used to produce pollen to spread to the pistil in order to create seed pods.
It is used to collect pollen and create new seeds.
It is used to collect pollen from the anthers. It is very sticky.
Where the new seeds grow (in ovules) to create seed pods.
It is used to trap the sunlight's energy during photosynthesis. This is where most of the food is made. It is located below the epidermis.
The specific cells where food is made. They are green, giving the plant it's green color.
Pores in the leaf where carbon dioxide enters and oxygen exits the plant.
This layer of the leaf stores carbon dioxide and oxygen temporarily.
It's purpose is to protect the leaf from drying out.
It protects the top and bottom of the leaf.
When the leaves of a plant use water and carbon dioxide to create their own food. The sun, gas, and wather complete in a series of chemical reactions to make food, oxygen and sugar for the plant.
