FC: Structures of Plants | By: Juiian McGruder, Nasia Greene and Gracie Lewis
1: Leaves -` the function of leaves would be to capture sunlight for photosynthesis. some examples of modified leaves would be the spine of a cactus and the tendrils of a garden pea. the different types of cells within a leaf is mesophyll which is the ground tissue and Epidermis vascular tissue the outer layer. the cuticle is a waxy layer that covers the non-woody parts above the of most plants. the stomata are any of the minute pores in the epdermis of the leaf or stem of a plant, forming a slit of variable thought which gases are exchanged. the4 equation of photosynthesis is 6Co2+ 6H2O+ energy---> 6O2+C6H12O6 the respiration equation is 6o2+c6h12o6---> 6h2o+6co2+ energy.
2: Roots: the absorption of water and inorganic nutrients, that anchor the plant body to the ground and is the storage of food and nutrients.
3: fibrous root systems do not penetrate deeply into the soil as taproots do, & they are made up of large # of roots that are similar in size. Taproots on the other hand penetrate a lot & very deep.
4: Root Hairs | Tiny hair-like outgrowth of some surface cells of plant roots & they greatly increase the area available for the absorption of water & other materials like minerals. | Stem structure | provides protection for the upper portions of the plant, vascular system, mechanical, insect, or animal damage.
5: Cell Vacuole 1. A large cavity or sac is found in plant cells or protozoans and that contains air or partially digested food, its function stores water. Flowers 1.Angiosperm 2.In a flower, one of the outermost rings of modified leaves that protect the flower bud as its function. 3.One of the ring or rings of the usually brightly colored leaf-shaped parts of a flower. 4.Anther holds the pollen, and filament holds up the anther. 5. Male because of the root word "men" 6.Stigma, style, ovary 7. Female
