what the Rise of water in a tall plant depends on
root pressure and Capillary action
transports water
transports nutrients
ground tissue with thin cell wall
ground tissue with flexible cell wall. supports larger plants
very thick cell wall, makes ground tissue tough.
difference of stems in monocots and dicots
dicot: vascular bundles arranged in a ring.
monocot:randomly scattered
root hairs
help with water absorption
vascular cambrium
meristematic tissue that produces vascular tissues and increases thickness of stem.
3 main functions of leaves
photosynthesis, transpiration, and gas exchange
function of the cuticle and epidermis
outermost layers of plant cells, meant for protection and prohibits the loss of water from cells. the openings regulate water and gas exchange.
gaurd cells
protect the cell from losing water
source cell
cell that sugars from photosynthesis are produced.
sink cells
cells where the source cell sugars are stored or used.

reproduction of bryophytes
sporophyte grows out of gametophyte
seedless, vascular,
vasuclar, seeded cones, known as gymnosperms
vasuclar flowering plants, 2 classes(monocot and dicot)
Monocot leaf
parallel veins
monocot stem
random vascular bundles
monocot roots
grow out and netlike
monocot flower
petals in multiples of 3
dicot leaf
netlike veins
dicot stem

dicot flower
petals in multiples of 5
dicot roots
grow mainly straight down
one year of life
2 years of living
lives many years
most recognizable stage of moss
alternation of generations
when many algae switch from being haploid to diploid
3 features that the plant kingdom is divided by
conducting tissues, seeds and flowers
haploid mass of green filament in moss that forms during germination
