Plants SC.912.L.14.7 Relate the structure of each of the major plant tissues or organs to physiological process.
Why do we need plants? • Photosynthesis • Oxygen • Release Carbon dioxide • Food • Shelter • Perfume • Transpiration • Prevent erosion • Medicine • Herbs • Climate • Paper
Plant • Plant consist of 3 main parts – Roots, Stem(trunk) and Leaves • Root- Water and nutrients • Stem- Support and Transport • Leaves- Photosynthesis and transpiration.
Transpiration • Transpiration is the process by which plants lose water. • This takes place through stomata-openings found in the leaves. • Cohesion and adhesion are the main factors that drive transpiration.
