Plants that make their own food are
the gas plants give off is
photosynthesis uses sunlight to convert water and CO2 into
oxygen and high energy sugars
plants are green because chlorophyll doesn't
absorb green light
in the chloroplasts, stroma is the space that surrounds the
light dependent reactions occur in the
thylakoid membranes
products of light dependent reactions are
oxygen gas, ATP, and NADPH
in light dependent reactions
ATP and NADP are not used to produce high energy sugars
the calvin cycle takes place in the
what is produced during the Calvin cycle?
high energy sugars
if CO2 is removed from the atmosphere
fewer sugars will be produced
a plant is a
multicellular eukaryote
not all plants produce
the first plants evolved from
an organism similar to multicellular green algae
bryophytes don't have vascular tissue therefore they
don't conduct water through tubes, grow close to the ground, and can draw only a few cm of water (all of the above)
xylem and phloem are not present in
xylem tissue is important because it
can conduct water over long distances
a seed plant is anchored by its
ground tissue is found in a plants
roots, stems, and leaves
what is produced in new plant cells?
meristematic tissue
if a student is looking at a microscpe for cell reproduction, what part of the plant should they look at?
the tip of a shoot
vascular tissue consists of
xylem and phloem
if the xylems of a young tree are destroyed, then the tree can't
conduct or transport water to the leaves
minerals from the soil move into roots by
active transport
the main function of the stems is to
transport substances between roots and leaves
primary growth of a stem
increases the length of the stem
oxygen produced by photosynthesis diffuses out of the leaf through
the stoma
the attraction of water molecules is
the tissue that water moves through by capillary action is
the xylem
the pollen producing male reproductive structure of the flower is the
in alternation of generations, what is the diploid phase?
gymnosperms produce seeds that are
developed uncovered within cones
angiosperms produce seeds inside protective structures called
to produce spores, all plants undergo
bryophytes need standing water to
in a fern the spores that are released from the sporangia are
not haploid
the structure that holds the plant embryo, food supply, and a protective covering is a
the specialized structure that evolved most recently is the
