What are two types of unusual roots?
-nodulation
-mycorrhizal associations
What occurs in nodulation of roots?
-symbiotic relationship with bacteria (rhizobium) fixes atmospheric nitrogen in certain legumes
What occurs in mycorrhizal associations?
-symbiotic relationship with fungi gives more water and mineral nutrient uptake
-the fungus gets CHO's in return
What are the functions of stems?
-conduct water and mineral nutrients from roots to leaves, flowers, and fruit
-leaf support (maximize photosynthesis)
-stores CHO's and water
What are the 5 components of stems?
-node
-internode
-xylem
-phloem
-cambium
From top to base, what are the buds found on stems?
-terminal
-lateral
-bud scale
-*terminal bud scale scar (line)
What are the pores found in stems?

-epidermis
-cork
-cork cambium
-phloem
-cambium
-xylem
-pith
What makes up the vascular bundle?
-phloem, cambium, and xylem
What is the bundle sheath?
-the surrounding cells of the primary phloem and xylem
What are some examples of specialized stems?
-cacti
-bulbs
-corm
-rhizome
-spur
-stolon
-thorns (but NOT prickles)
-tuber
What are the components of corm?
-contractile root
-mother corm from previous year
-cormel (round things on base)

What are some flowers from corm?
-galdiolus
-crocus
-
What are some flowers from bulbs?
-chives?
-daffodils and narcissus
-hyacinths
-tulips
What is an example of a rhizome? What do people think this often is?
-ginger is thought of as a root, but it isn't!! It has nodes and shoots off from main stem
What are spurs?
What are stonlons?
-bunches of berries hanging from stem
-thick lines with no foliage such as strawberries and spider plants
Where can you find great thorns?
-Hawthorn berry bush
-honeylocust
What are prickles?
-modified epidermal cells found on roses and brambles, but are NOT stems!
What is the most common form of a tuber?
-potato
What are the functions of leaves?
-transpiration
-photosynthesis
-sometimes storage
What are the components of a leaf?
-blade
-petiole
-midrib (not all)
-margin
-tip
-viens
What are 4 leaf tips?
-acute (pointed)
-obtuse (rounded)
-truncate (blunt)
