what type of venation is shown below (pinnate, sessile, parallel, palmate)?
the leaves of a particular plant wilt during the day but recover at night. which of the following statements describes the MOST likely cause of this behavior?
the plant receives adequate water, but hot temperatures cause rapid transpiration during the day.
which of the following statements (plants provide food for other organisms, plants convert carbon dioxide to oxygen, plants contain chlorophyll, plants conduct photosynthesis) BEST explains why plants are considered autotrophs?
plants conduct photosynthesis
which of the following (the plant cannot grow or repair tissue damage, the plant cannot transport sap through its stems, the plant cannot absorb water from the soil, the plant cannot conduct photosynthesis) would be MOST likely to result if a plant's meristematic tissue is damaged?
the plant cannot grow or repair tissue damage
the onion plant is typically harvested after its first season of growth; if it is allowed to continue growing, it produces flowers in the second season before dying. what type of plant is the onion?
which of the following (pea-family plants' fruits contain large amounts of nitrogen-containing compounds, pea-family plants can grow in soils that lack essential nitrogen compounds, pea-family plants can use nitrates produced by lightning to make proteins, pea-family plants' roots provide a place for nitrogen-fixing bacteria to grow) BEST explains the role of pea-family plants in the nitrogen cycle?
pea-family plants' roots provide a place for nitrogen-fixing bacteria to grow

a biologist is trying to determine what types of plants a certain species of frog prefers to eat; in what field of biology is he working?
when placed in pure water, the cells of humans and animals absorb water and swell until they burst; but the cells of plants absorb water and become firmer without bursting. what part of plant cells is responsible for this difference?

change in the amount of chlorophyll in a leaf
what changes would be MOST likely to affect the rate of photosynthesis?
covering part of the box with cardboard
when the botanist separates the leaf contents to analyze them, she finds that the mixture contains green, blue, and yellow substances. which statement BEST explains this observation?
the leaf naturally contains blue and yellow pigments that are masked by the presence of green chlorophyll.
stalk that attaches leaf to stem
middle layer of leaf where majority of photosynthesis occurs
large; central vein
openings in the leaf
protects and covers the leaf
defend the following statement: God designed each organ of a flowering plant to help the plant fulfill its role in nature.
plants provide food directly or indirectly to all humans and animals, leaves involved in photosynthesis which allows plant to live and gives nutrients to whoever eats plant, roots act as an anchor for plant and absorb water and store food, stems transport water and nutrients and hold leaves above ground so they get more light, flowers allow plant to reproduce
