Vascular Plants
Plants that have tissues organized to conduct food and water throughout their structure. They can produce seed, or not.
Nonvascular Plants
Plants that lack special tissue for conducting food and water. They produce no seeds or flowers. Generally very small plants (mosses)
Angiosperms
Plants that produce flowers as reproductive organs
Gymnosperms
Plant that produce seeds without flowers (Mostly trees)
Annuals
Plants that survive only through a single growing seasons
Perennial
Plants that continue to grow year after year
Sepals
In angiosperms, this encloses the petals before blooming
Pedicel
In angiosperms, the short branch of stem that supports the flower
Pistil
In angiosperms, the female reproductive structure (includes the stigma, style, ovary, and ovules)
Stigma
In angiosperms, the sticky surface at the top of the pistol which traps pollen grains
Style
In angiosperms, a slender vase-like structure below the stigma which encloses the ovary
Ovary
In angiosperms, a hollow bulb-shaped structure in the lower interior of the pistol. After seeds have formed, this becomes fruit
Ovules
In angiosperms, small round cases in the ovaries that contain one or more egg cells

Multiple Fruit
Fruit that forms from the fusing of several ovaries of separate flowers during ripening (Strawberry, Pineapple)
Cotyledon
Stored food in a seed
Dicotyledon
Plants with two cotyledons in the seed (Oaks, Flowers, Vegetables)
Monocotyledon
Plants with only one cotyledon in the seed (Grasses, Lilies, Palms)
Xylem
Vascular tissue that transports water up from the ground to the branches and leaves
Phloem
Vascular tissue that transports food made in the leaves to the rest of the plant
Tropism
An involuntary response of an organism to an external stimulus such as light, water, gravity, or nutrients.
