what kind of plants produce seeds?
gymnosperms and angiosperms
what kind of plants do you hate the most?
where do gymnosperms produce seeds?
on or near bracts
imagine being in gym with seeds in your braces
what are bracts?
exposed leaves found on cones
what are bracets? exposed little boxes on teeth
where do angiosperms produce seeds?
inside the ovaries
where do seeds develop from?
sporagnia attached to modified leaves (the sporophylls of a cone or carpels of a flower). the ovule forms as an attachment to a modified leaf and develops into a seed after fertilization. the outer layers of the ovule (integuments- usually one or two) harden to become the seed coat.
what are integuments?
the outer layers of the ovule which harden into a seed coat after fertilization
in gymnosperms, the ovulate cone typically has __ scales with each fertilized ovule developing into a seed sitting _____ the scale
2, atop
in angiosperms, seeds develop as fertilized ovules inside the ovary, which forms the base of the carpel. the ovary eventually matures into a fruit.
no question.
a gymnosperm contains an embryo with several ______ attached to a _________ and an ____________
cotyledons, short stem, embryonic root
dicot seeds contain an embryo with ________, prominent cotyledons that contain ________, _________, and _________.
fleshy, starch, protein, lipids
in dicots, the cotyledons attach to a _________ that culminates in the embryonic root called a ______________
short stem, radicle

small, large
the monocot embryo has __ (#) cotyledons known as (a) ________
1 scutellum
1 cotyledon is a CUTE number and the word CUTE is found in the name!
what is the scutellum (the one cotyledon in monocots) attached to?
an embryonic axis containing shoot and root meristems
a layer of protein called the ____________ surround the endosperm in monocot seeds and responds to signals from the scutellum by producing ______ to break down ______
aleurone, enzymes, starch
mark marone, al's, lazy cousin
what is the name of a PASSIVE process that begins seed germination in which the dry seed takes up water like a sponge?
imbibition
what does colleen do when she takes up beer like a sponge?
_______ _______ serves as a kind of clock to prevent seeds from germinating during winter warm spells
abscisic acid
what is the first sign that germination is occuring?
the busting of the radicle through the seed coat
what is the name of the embryonic shoot that begins to grow?
plumule
what is the name of the germination that occurs in which the cotyledons remain underground?
hypogeous
think another term for BELOW, and another term for EARTH
in what type of plants does hypogeous germination occur?
some dicots and most monocots
a bad day occurs when you have have hypothermia and mono
in what type of germination do the cotyledons push above the soil?
epigeous
you can't watch the EPI tonight because the homework is ABOVE your head, another name for EARTH
in what type of plants does epigeous germination occur?
most dicots and some monocots
it's a good day when you go to epcot center and see a ...
through what process are asexual seeds produced?

people who have to be asexual are a poor at mixin'
what are 4 functions of the fruit?
