  1. Life on EarthKingdom Plantae Part 5 Division Anthophyta (Flowering Plants or Angiosperms)

  2. Division: Anthophyta • Largest group in the Plant Kingdom with more than 300,000 species • Seed plants with no archegonia produced • Gametophyte generation highly reduced (7 cells and 8 nuclei in the female and 2 cells and 3 nuclei in the male) • Double fertilization occurs with the formation of endosperm(for nutrition)

  3. Division Anthophyta (cont.) • Species produce “flowers” which are often showy with colored petals and or sepals (modified leaves) • Close co-evolution with animal pollinators • Two major classes are recognized: • Liliopsida (monocots) • Magnoliopsida (dicots)

  4. Only one cotyledon in the embryo Leaves with parallel veins Flower parts in 3’s Stem with an atactostele No true secondary growth Pollen monocolpate Two cotyledons in the embryo Leaves with “net veins” Flower parts in 4’s and 5’s Stem a eustele Many with secondary growth Pollen tricolpate Monocots vs. Eudicots

  5. Monocots Includes: Iris, grasses, palms, orchids, sedges, yuccas, agaves, lilies

  6. Eudicots Includes: Poppies, sunflowers, buttercups, oaks, mints, and just about everything else!

  7. Flower Structure • A “typical” flower has: • petals • sepals • carpels • stamens Trillium

  8. Variations on Floral Structure • Primitive flowers are those withmany, separate parts with both stamens and carpels • More “advanced” flowers have undergone “fusion” of parts and reduction in numbers of each part; some have separate male and female flowers • With these changes other terms are needed to describe these variations

  9. Terminology • All the petals of a flower = COROLLA • All the sepals of a flower = CALYX • All petals AND sepals = PERIANTH • All stamens = ANDROECIUM • Fused carpels = PISTIL • All female parts = GYNOECIUM

  10. Flower DiagramHypogynous Flower

  11. Arrangement of Floral Parts • All parts attached below the ovary = SUPERIOR OVARY or a HYPOGYNOUSFLOWER

  12. Arrangement of Floral Parts • All parts attached above the ovary = INFERIOR OVARY or a EPIGYNOUS FLOWER

  13. Arrangement of Floral Parts • Flower parts attached to a floral cup or HYPANTHIUM = PERIGYNOUS FLOWER

  14. Epigynous Flower

  15. What parts are present? • PERFECT FLOWERS have both stamens and carpels • IMPERFECT FLOWERS produce only stamens (staminate flowers) or only carpels (pistillate flowers) • COMPLETE FLOWERS have all 4 flower parts (stamens, carpels, petals, sepals) • INCOMPLETE FLOWERS lack one or more parts

  16. Floral Symmetry Actinomorphic = radial symmetry Zygomorphic = bilateral symmetry

  17. How are the flowers arranged on the plant? • The flowering branch is called the inflorescence • Many types of arrangements are known (umbel, cyme, corymb, raceme, spike, panicle, and HEAD) • The HEAD is found in members of the sunflower family (Asteraceae) • Composed often of TWO flower types = DISC FLOWERS and RAY FLOWERS

  19. Ray flower Disc flowers The HEAD Inflorescence

  20. Other Inflorescences Daucus (a compound umbel) Penstamon (a thyrse)

  21. Lilac (panicle) and Delphinium(raceme)

  22. Life Cycle of Angiosperms(In the Ovule) • Surrounded by the integuments, the megaspore mother cell (2N) undergoes meiosis producing 4 megaspores

  23. Life Cycle of Angiosperms(In the Ovule) • Three of the four megaspores die, and one functional one divides 3 times by mitosis forming 8 nuclei (N) • Cell walls are formed making 7 cells with 8 nuclei (mature embryo sac or female gametophyte)

  24. Life Cycle of Angiosperms(The Female Gametophyte) EGG CELL SYNERGID CELLS POLAR NUCLEI ANTIPODAL CELLS

  25. Angiosperm Life Cycle(Lily variation: one of many) • Meiosis produces 4 megaspore nuclei • Three of the nuclei FUSE (3N) • Two mitotic divisions follow forming the final female gametophyte (embryo sac) • The (3) antipodal cells are triploid • The synergid cells and egg are haploid • One polar nucleus is 3N, the other 1N

  26. Lilium (4-nucleate stage)


  28. Lilium (8-nucleate stage)

  29. Life Cycle of Angiosperms(In the Anther) • Microspore mother cells (2N) undergo meiosis to formmicrospores (N) • Microspores divide once by mitosis forming pollen grains (male gametophytes) • TWO cells are present (tube cell and a generative cell) • outer wall (with sporopollenin) is the exine and the inner wall is the intine

  30. Lilium anther (xs)

  31. Tube Cell Generative Cell Mature Pollen Grains ragweed pollen grain

  32. Exine of Lilium Pollen

  33. Life Cycle of Angiosperms(Pollination) • Pollen grains are released from the anther and carried (pollination) to the carpel/pistil of the flower or different flower

  34. Life Cycle of Angiosperms(Toward Fertilization) • Pollen grain germinates and a pollen tube extends down through the style leading to the ovule • The generative cell divides and two spermnuclei are released into the ovule

  35. Life Cycle of Angiosperms(Fertilization) • One sperm nucleus fuses with the egg nucleus and this zygote will grow to become the embryo • The other sperm nucleus fuses with the polar nuclei forming the primary endosperm nucleus which develops into the endosperm • This process is called DOUBLE FERTILIZATION

  36. Double Fertilization egg nucleus 3n polar nucleus sperm nuclei n polar nucleus

  37. Summary • Therefore, the embryo (the next sporophyte generation) is diploid (2N) • The endosperm tissue, used for nutrition of the embryo, is 3N (2 polar nuclei + sperm nucleus) • Endosperm may be 5N (or other N’s) as in Lilium (3N polar nucleus + 1N polar nucleus +1N sperm nucleus)

  38. Summary (cont.) • The integument layers, which surround the female gametophyte mature to become the seed coat • Ovule (with the embryo and endosperm) becomes the seed • The ovary of the flower matures to become the fruit
