How many cotyledons does a monocot have?
The leaves of a monocot are usually:
The petals of monocots are in multiples of:
How many cotyledons do dicots have?
The leaves of dicots are:
four or five
The petals of dicots come in multiples of:
one cotyledon
Monocots are plants whose seeds have:
two cotyledon
Dicots are plants whose seed have:
flowering plants
What are angiosperms?
The food source for an embryo in a seed.
seed, leaves, flower part and the stem
Four ways that monocots and dicots differ from each other.
they have long, slender leaves with parallel veins
Describe the leaves of monocots:
petals are in multiples of 3
Decribe the petals of monocots:
What kind of root system does a monocot have:
tulips, grass, palm trees, lily
Three plants from the monocot family.
vein patterns in leaves
What is venation?
the main vein seem to run parallel to each other.
What is parallel venation?
small veins that branch from one main vein.
What is pinnate venation?
veins tht branch from more than one main vein.
What is palmate venation?
parallel, pinnate, palmate
The three major pattens of leaf veins:
carbon dioxide
What is released as a byproduct of photosynthesis?
chlorophyll reflects green light.
Why do we perceive chlorophyll has being green?
the lights splits the water in to hydrogen and oxygen.
In the process of photosythesis what happens to light and water.
It leaves the leaf and goes into the environment
In the process of photosynthesis when the hydrogen and oxygen slit what happen to the oxygen:
it combines with carbon dioxide to form glucose
What happens to the hydrogen during the process of photosytheis?
glucose and oxygen combine to make energy
What happens during respiration:
all day and all night
When does respiration occur?
during the day only.
When does photosynthesis occur?
use glucose to provide energy for the plant's cells.
What is purpose of respiration?
use light enery to make glucose
What does photosynthesis do?
To store food in the growing season.
The purpose of a lily bulb:
What is the creeping stem of a grass plant?
broad (flat leaves) long (narrow leaves) needlike (scale-like leaves)
Name the three basic shapes of leaves:
