S: Our Baby Brassicas(:
BC: The end of our baby story:)
FC: Kiah Sexton, Sara Krueger, Catherine Brown, Destiny Baitinger | Team 32!
1: Planting! | 1. In order to plant our babies our group had to obtain small film containers and fill them with dirt. 2. Of course we received our seeds, which became our babies! 3. We did not fill the canister all the way but about 3/4 full. 4. We placed our seeds gently in the dirt and covered them. Also making sure to water them after words by placing all of our babies in a larger container filled with water. Our lives of parenthood have just begun!! | Seeds that were just harvested, that are ready to be planted.
2: The whole seed itself in the picture above is the embryo. The embryo is the early stage outcome of development for a plant. The radicle is the part of the embryo that sucks up water, and allow for photosynthesis to start occurring. The hypocotyl is the stem of a germinating plant. The cotyledons provide nutrients for the germinating seed during it's baby days. | Germination:)
3: Day 10 What baby will win the growing race? | Cotyledons have grown, and leaves are popping out! 2.9 cm! | Leaves are getting bigger! Their color is the same as the cotyledons and the stem! | 3.8 Cm | 4.2 CM! | Smallest real leaf in middle grew and is splitting. In between the two are small green round things with purple tips. | oldest leaf is bigger, not much other change | 6 cm!
4: Germination Begins! The seed coat splits, as the radicle draws up water. The hypocotyl begins to split out, and sprouts, while the cotyledon comes up with it! | Days 1-3! | http://www.google.com/imgres?q=germinating+brassica+seeds&um=1&hl=en&sa | http://www.google.com/imgres?q=germ
6: Flower: Reproductive structure of a fruit-producing plant Node: the part of a stem where one or more leaves are attached. Stem: part of a plant that grows above the ground bearing the leaves and flowers. Bud: the undeveloped flower protected by sepals. Internode: the region of the stem between two nodes. Leaf: the part of a plant whose function is photosynthesis and transpiration. Root: the part of a plant that normally grows underground, anchors the plant, absorbs and conducts water and minerals. Comprised of the Primary root and root hairs. Cotyledon: seed leaf. Dermial Tissue: covers the outside of plant to protect from injury and water loss.
7: I was thinking just sticking my pic in here then just have the functions. I have the pic finished so all we need to do is get it in here! | Flower | Bud | Stem | Node | Internode | Cotyledons | Dermal Tissue | Root Hairs | Primary Root
8: Tropisms | Negative | Positive | What is a Tropism? A physiological response | :) Gravitropism- The response of the growing shoot to grow away from gravity | :) Gravitropism- The response of the root, to grow toward gravity :) *Phototropism-The response of the shoot gorwing toward the light | *Phototropism is a positive tropism because it distributes uneven auxin to the side of the plant away from the light to allow growth of the plant towards the light | Auxin and Gibberlin are hormones that do different things in growth and development of the plant. Gibberlin allows the plant to grow rapidly. It produces too much of the chemical into the plant, and acts as a mutation. Gibberlins seem to move freely in the plant, and their transport and distribution is not polar, as with auxins.
9: In vascular plants, the apical meristem produces three kinds of meristems: the protoderm, ground meristem, and procambium. These in turn produce primary tissues. | Primary growth- Growth that originates in the apical meristem | A meristem at the tip of a plant shoot or root that produces auxin and causes the shoot or root to increase in length. | Apical Meristem- located at tip of root or shoot, supply root or shoot to grow | Lateral Meristem- located near the periphery of the plant, supplies plant growth to increase girth | Secondary Growth- occurs with lateral meristem, starts with the initiation of the vascular cambium
10: What are you? Identifying plant type | The parents of the non-purple stem, yellow-green leaf produces a heterozygous offspring that has no anthocyanin pigment. | Non-Purple Stem, Yellow-Green Leaf.
11: This Tall Plant grows about 12 times more than a standard Fast Plant. The plants of this stock tends to be a lighter green than the Standard Plants. | Tall Plant
12: Petite/Astroplant | Petite plants are shorter than the typical Fast Plant, and all parts of the plants are reduced in size, proportional to thies height. Petite plants are a more intense, green color than the standard Fast Plant.
13: Purple Stem plants produce a purple pigment(anthocyanin) that is visible on the stems and hypocotyls, under cotyledons, and at the leaf tips and hydathodes. Hairs, known as trichomes, are found in varying numbers, mostly on the stems and leaves. | Purple Hairy Stem
14: Days 14-17 Bees must pollinate our little munchkins!
15: Bee Stick Pollination! Days 13-18
16: Each foreleg is has an antenna cleaner, a row of small spines, which are used to brush pollen from the antennae. Using the pollen brushes on the midlegs, the bee removes the pollen from its head, thorax and forelegs. The pollen is pushed off the brushes by the pollen combs and brushed upon other flowers and pistils to pollinate.
17: The 4 Simple steps to Pollinating Bee Stick Style: | Step 1: | Step 4: | Step 3: | Step 2: | Bee sticks can be made from whole bees or just the fuzzy thorax (mid- section) with or without the wings. | Use a drop of glue to fix the bee thorax to a toothpick. | Let beesticks dry overnight. | Pollinate with the beesticks by brushing the bee over flowers to pick up and pass around the pollen among different plants. Fast Plants® do not self-pollinate.
18: Phloem is living tissue that carries nutrients, particularly sucrose produced from photosynthesis, to parts of the plant. Sieve elements are the group of cells that are responsible for actually moving sugar through the plant.Xylem's function is to transport water, but it also transports some nutrients through the plant. | Nutrient, Food, and Water Delivery | Vascular tissue is a conducting tissue made up of xylem and phloem that transports fluids and nutrients.
19: The stomata are pores found in the leaf and stem that are used for the exchange of gases. The stoma is bordered by a pair of specialized cells known as guard cells that are responsible for regulating the size of the opening. Carbon dioxide and oxygen enters the plant through these openings where it is used in photosynthesis and respiration. | Transpiration is the process by which moisture is carried through plants from roots to small pores known as stomata on the underside of leaves, where it changes to vapor and is released to the atmosphere. | Turgor pressure is the outward force on a plant cell wall by the water contained in the cell. This force gives the plant rigidity, and helps to keep it upright.
21: Days 17-35 Seed and Pod Development!
23: Life Cycle! | Step 1: Germination The seed is beginning to grow. The first main root ( ) comes out. the skin of the seed comes off Step 2: Cotyledons Emerge The stem with the cotyledons come out of the soil. They straighten and grow upward. Step 3: Stem Elongates The stem grows taller and the roots grow longer as well. Step 4: True Leaves Appear The true leaves finally come up. The cotyledons are lower on the stem, while the true leaves are higher up on the stem. Step 5: Flower Buds Appear Flower buds are finally appearing and will bloom in a few days. New leaves may still be appearing and the plant may grow more.
24: Step 6: Flowers Begin To Grow The flowers are blooming and more buds may appear. The flowers will grow off the stem and become taller. The entire plant is the sporophyte. The sporophyte generation occurs throughout the entire plants life cycle. A sporophyte has two chromosomes (these are called diploids). When the chromosomes split into one chromosome, the single chromosome is the gametophyte. In a flowering plant the gametophyte is the pollen which is produced by the anthers where pollen grains are released. The gametophyte will help in making the new sporophyte, the seed! Step 7: Pod Development Begins After pollination pods will begin to grow from the flowers. These pods develop the seeds. The flowers will die and fall off of the pods as they are no longer needed. The plants are soon taken off of their water supply.
25: Step 8: Pods Are Mature This is the final stage of the fast plant. The pods now are full of seeds and are ready to be harvested. The old plant is dead and the cycle begins again when the new seeds are planted!
26: Threshing | 1.)TO start the threshing process, we snipped the end of our pistils at the stems. 2.) We rolled each pistil in our fingers 3.) Collect each new seed that will eventually restart the process and save them for next year
27: The end to our Babies | To start next years Beginnings
28: Monocots | Monocot seeds have single cotelydons The leaves are parallel Petals are in multiples of three (ex: 3, 6, 9 etc...) In the stems the vascular bundles are scattered on the inside of the stem These types of plants have fibrous roots which are more spread out
29: Types of Monocot Plants | grass | tulips | corn
30: Dicots | Whereas Monocot plants have one cotelydon Dicot plants have two The leaves of Dicot plants have branched veins Their flowers come in multiples of 4 or 5 The vascular bundles inside the stem are arranged in a ring They have taproots which is one main root instead of roots that spread out
31: Examples of Dicots | carrots | peanuts | geraniums
