BIOL 197L - Lab #6: PLANT MORPHOLOGY, GROWTH, MICROANATOMY, AND TRANSPORT
Identify (the structure that develops into flowers and branches):
Axillary or lateral bud
Identify: StructurePrimarily present in Monocots or Eudicots?
Root hairsIncreased surface area for the uptake of water and nutrients
Undifferentiated vascular traces
Vascular tissue that is differentiating into vessel elements of the xylem
Plants are characterized by which type of growth?
Stems that grow underground:
Roots that grow aboveground
What are the four primary functions of roots?
(1) Anchorage of the plant in soil(2) Absorption of water and minerals from the soil(3) Conduction of water and minerals from the region of absorption to the base of the stem(4) Starch storage to varying degree
Plants have three main tissue systems, what are they?
XylemTransportation of water and nutrients
Identify:What does it contain?
Stele, or vascular cylinderContains the vascular tissues
The root is the only plant organ that has a vascular cylinder
