The Organization and function of plants On earth plants are intricate members of our very existence but the also have their organization as well there own functions. Plants are multicellular photosynthetic eukaryotes that increasingly became adapted to live on land . Plant organization and functions vary depending on its characteristics , or what the plant is made of most of which depends on the structure and environment of the plant pertains to. For instance, flowering plants most consist of a root system and shoot system being the leaves and stems. plants also have a few complex important parts stems, leaves, roots they also have a unique tissue system as well a few diferent type of cell types such as Parenchyma See these are typical plant features which have vegetative organs these organs produce growth nutrition , but they do not intervene with the plants reproduction (9.1plants organ and system pg143). Root systems majority of plants are located beneath the surface the functions of the root systems is to absorb water and minerals from the soil it is used to feed off the entire plant. The root system is made up of the branch root, root hairs and the primary root. The two main purposes of roots are to stabilize the plant in the soil, while at the same time absorbing water and nutrients and dispersing them to the rest of the plant. Plants can also act as storage sites for food reserves. Water does not come to roots nearly as much as roots must come to water. Roots constantly have to grow to adapt to new water supplies. This constant need for water helps with the process of photosynthesis. Each plant has its own root system. Plants have three types of root systems,Taproot with a main taproot that is larger and grows faster than the branch roots the Fibrous, with all roots about the and the Adventitous, roots that form on any plant part…...

...many different types of plants on the planet earth, but one that stands out to me is the eucalyptus tree. Growing up as a kid, I always wondered how a plant could grow so tall towering over everything else and lasting for years and years through severe weather changes. Eucalyptus is flowering tree with several different types of species. The name is actually derived from the Greek word “eucalyptos,” which means “well covered,” and refers to the cuplike membrane that covers the budding flowers of the tree.2 They are mostly found in the continent of Australia, and few parts in Africa as well. The wood from eucalyptus trees are very hard and they are used to make furniture, fences, canoe boats and picture frames. These trees can grow really tall usually over 80 meters in height towering into the sky with wide spread leaves. Because of its large geographic range the genus exhibits many habits, from tall trees to multistemmed, shrubby species called mallees. The mountain ash (Eucalyptus regnans) of Victoria and Tasmania is the tallest hardwood in the world, reaching heights over 330 ft (100 m); only the coast redwoods of California are taller. Having epicormic buds in branches and stems, and lignotubers in the roots, many species are well adapted for surviving fire and drought. Some species have smooth bark, in which case they are referred to as gum-barked, while others have rough bark.1 To begin, the scientific name for the eucalyptus plant is Eucalyptus......

...Hikemeister, While I can’t turn you into a hot botanist, I can explain how C3 and C4 plants are different and suggest how their distribution might be expected to change with altitude. As I will best try to become your “Plants for Dummys” guide as it is crucial that you first have an understanding of the difference between C3 and C4 plants, to even remotely fool your plant lady guru. Firstly, the difference between C3 and C4 plants is that C3 plants form a pair of 3 carbon-atom molecules during CO2 assimilation while C4plants, which account for an abundance on higher regions of the mountain, form 4 carbon-atom molecules. By far the most important difference for rising CO2 levels is that C3 species continue to increase photosynthesis with rising CO2 while C4 does not. As you climb up the mountain, as I’m sure you noticed, the air becomes very dry and thin all due to the change in altitude. This is due to the enzyme used in C4 plants to convert CO2 into organic molecules known as PEP carboxylase, which has a high affinity only for CO2 - making it easier at fixing CO2 than C3 plants. Ultimately, this means that C4 plants don’t have to keep their stomata open as long as C3 plants in order to produce the exact same number of CO2 molecules, which are used to make ATP and glucose in the Calvin Cycle. As a result, as water loss is reduced, C4 plants become a much better fit to arid the “Three Sisters” of Alberta. Hope this peaks both your......

...Inquiry Research Paper Every plant is different. There are no two plants that are the same, nor are there two that grow the same way. Some plants grow in hot, dry environments while others grow in cold, damp environments. Some plants grow in the tropical rain forests while others grow in prairies. Even plants that are in the same family can grow in different climates and environments. Plants can be as similar as they are different. Plants need certain factors to be able to thrive in an environment. They need certain levels of water and sunlight. They need a certain type of soil and certain amount of shade. Plants are very picky on how, when and where they grow. The Beavertail Cactus, African Lilly, and Boston fern are three plants that are very different in many ways. They all grow in different regions and require different levels of abiotic factors. They are each unique in their own way and are ever different then the species in their families. The Beavertail Cactus is a part of the cactaceae, cactus family. It has a scientific name of Opuntia basilaris. The cactus is the state cactus of Texas. The lifespan of it is over twenty years. Another name that the Beavertail Cactus is referred to is “Prickly Pear.” It is referred by that name because of the fruit that grows on it. Spanish-American culture influenced a nickname for the fruit, “tuna.” The Beavertail Cactus is flat and pancake like with no leafs. It is a dull green color. The cactus can reach up to seven......

...into the 20th century, species were divided into two kingdoms: animals and plants. Driven by DNA characterizations and other modern analysis, fungi and bacteria have now been removed to separate kingdoms; in particular, fungi have cell walls that contain chitin rather than cellulose. Lichens, which are a symbiotic association of a fungal and photosynthetic organism, are generally not considered plants in the purest sense of taxonomy, although earlier classification schemes viewed them as plants. Viruses are also not considered to be plants, since they do not have a cell of their own, but inhabit a host cell of another organism; moreover, in many classifications they are not considered a living organism at all. Myxomycetes, or slime molds, are also not considered plants, but rather are heterotrophs that can ingest bacteria, fungal spores, and other items. The scientific study of plants, known as botany, has identified about 350,000 extant taxa of plants, defined as seed plants, bryophytes, ferns and fern allies. As of 2008, approximately 400,000 plant species have been described,[2] of which roughly ninety percent are flowering plants. Vascular plants have lignified tissue and specialized structures termed xylem and phloem, which transport water, minerals, and nutrients upward from the roots and return sugars and other photosynthetic products. Vascular plants include ferns, club mosses, flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms. A scientific name for this......

...Plants, also called green plants, are multicellular eukaryotes of the kingdom Plantae. They form an unranked clade Viridiplantae(Latin for green plants) that includes the flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms, ferns, clubmosses, hornworts, liverworts,mosses and the green algae. Green plants excludes the red and brown algae, the fungi, archaea, bacteria and animals. Green plants have cell walls with cellulose and obtain most of their energy from sunlight via photosynthesis by primary chloroplasts, derived from endosymbiosis with cyanobacteria. Their chloroplasts contain chlorophylls a and b, which gives them their green color. Some plants are parasitic and have lost the ability to produce normal amounts of chlorophyll or to photosynthesize. Plants are also characterized by sexual reproduction, modular[clarification needed] and indeterminate growth, and an alternation of generations, althoughasexual reproduction is also common. Precise numbers are difficult to determine, but as of 2010, there are thought to be 300–315 thousand species of plants, of which the great majority, some 260–290 thousand, are seed plants (see the table below).[1] Green plants provide most of the world's molecular oxygen[2] and are the basis of most of the earth's ecologies, especially on land. Plants that produce grains, fruits and vegetables form mankind's basic foodstuffs, and have been domesticated for millennia. Plants are used as ornaments and, until recently and in great variety, they...

Nonvascular plants-represents the transition from the aquatic environment of their ancestors-charophytes- to the terrestrial environment about 475 million years ago- some possess water-conducting tubesWater-conducting tubes- prototypes of vascular tissues that fully developed in the next group | | 2. Seedless Vascular plants-evolved about 400 million years ago-they reproduce through spores-structures with vascular tissues eventually diversified and allowed a wider range of sizes for plants wherein the vascular tissues permit transport of water and nutrients across longer distances | | 3. Seeds-provided a natural advantage for colonizing drier lands as they protect plant embryos from harsh environment factorsCone- earliest seed plants bear naked seeds on reproductive structures -they gave rise to the group of cone-bearing plants (gymnosperms) about 200 million years ago | | 4. Flower- Bearing Plants * They emerged about 130 million years agoFlowers- complex reproductive structures that bear seeds within chambers called Ovaries. | | Additional notes: Mosses -the first group of land plants are the mosses and their allies, the liverworts and hornworts. Together, they are called the bryophytes. -they are land plants, but do not have seeds or flowers. -lack vessels, so they are restricted to smaller sizes and more moist environments than other land plants.

...Plants are vital to the survival of all life on Earth--plants transform the light of the sun into energy that is usable to other life on Earth. Without plants, animals would not be able to use the energy of the Sun that reaches the Earth. The removal of one plant from the ecosystem can cause many unforeseen changes, sometimes irreversibly damaging an ecosystem. However, some plants are more important than others, either for biological or cultural reasons. In my country, Korea, I would say that the grass that produces rice has come to be the most important plant, not just because rice is a staple food, but also for other cultural reasons. Virtually every Korean eats rice at least twice a day. I, for example, had rice at breakfast, lunch, and dinner yesterday. For most Koreans, rice is an integral part of a meal, as expected in a meal as ink is to a pen or wheels are to a car--a meal without rice is not a meal. In fact, if I have dinner with my American friends and do not eat rice, I actually feel hungry even if I have filled myself with potatoes or other food while eating with them. Many of my friends have made similar comments to me. So, I believe that rice is as much a part of our daily lives as work or talking on the telephone is. However, rice is much more than just a staple food to most Koreans--it represents the very sustenance of much of our culture. Our history teachers tell us that the development of rice as an agricultural product was largely responsible for the......

...evolutionary relationships among organisms and the diversity of life on earth. Biological science is classified into various branches, which depend upon the organisms to be studied. These are some main branches of biology Botany, Entomology, Ecology, Anatomy, Immunology, Limnology, Genetics, Histology, Biomechanics and Embryology. The study of plant life or phytology is known as botany. It's studies the life and development of fungi, algae and plants. Botany also probes into the structure growth, diseases, chemical and physical properties of the plant species. Also it implies the importance of study of plant life on earth because they generated food, fibers, medicines, fuel and oxygen. A person who is working in the study of botany is called a botanist. As a botanist, you study plants and apply you knowledge to teaching and research in agriculture, horticulture, and land use planning and medicine. Usually they investigate the effects of environmental factors such as rainfall, temperature and disease on plant growth, they grow plants under controlled conditions to assess the significance of environmental variables and prepare handbooks for plant identification. Entomology is the study of insects. Insects are one of the most successful and diverse groups of living organisms in world today. It concentrates on studying the taxonomy, features, adaptations, roles and behavior of insects. If you're interested about insects and their behavior you might consider yourself to be an......

...potential energy sources from the farthest reaches of the world. Dr. Strobel found that an endophtic fungus called Gliocladium roseum that shows the same essence as Diesel fuel. The same diesel that is produced by man from crude oil. He found that the endophtic fungus was produced to protect the plant from other endophtic fungus. It was interesting to find out plants have natural abilities to protect themselves from the smallest organisms. The production of an energy source from an micro organism shows the vastness of alternative energy. However, the example of his work with the Dutch Elm disease shows the up hill battle it takes to push forth a new idea. It makes me think about the influence of oil and our reliance on it and how little we know about alternative energy. I know for a fact that I personally don't really trust alternative energy and my point of view comes from lack of knowledge. But I also realize the impact on the future if we don't change our reliance on fossil fuels for energy. Hopefully with new discoveries like this we can change public perception. It was interesting that old growth forests have no sick plants and it made me think about the impact society has had on plants negatively. As we continue to search for new energy sources, what will be our impact on these forest be? In my opinion, we need to be careful how we attain new sources of energy. Fracking is one argument that comes to mind when i think of social impact. We need to be careful and......

Plant Tissues

...Plant Tissues A mature vascular plant (any plant other than mosses and liverworts), contains several types of differentiated cells. These are grouped together in tissues. Some tissues contain only one type of cell. Some consist of several. Tissue is a cellular organizational level intermediate between cells and a complete organism. A tissue is an ensemble of similar cells and from the same origin, that together carry out a specific function. These are called tissues because of their identical functioning. Organs are then formed by the functional grouping together of multiple tissues. Examples of tissue in other multicellular organisms are vascular tissue in plants, such as xylem and phloem. Plant tissues are categorized broadly into three tissue systems: the epidermis, the ground tissue, and the vascular tissue. Together they are often referred to as biomass. * Epidermis - Cells forming the outer surface of the leaves and of the young plant body. * Vascular tissue - The primary components of vascular tissue are the xylem and phloem. These transport fluid and nutrients internally. * Ground tissue - Ground tissue is less differentiated than other tissues. Ground tissue manufactures nutrients by photosynthesis and stores reserve nutrients. Meristematic The main function of meristematic tissue is mitosis. The cells are small, thin-walled, with no central vacuole and no specialized features. Meristematic tissue is located in * the apical meristems at the......
