Botany Study Guide
1) Describe the structure of the three types of plant cells, where each of these cells are found in the plant, and make the connections between their structure and function.
2) Identify the function of xylem and phloem.
3) Define each of these properties of water: adhesion and cohesion.
4) Describe how cohesion-tension theory explains how water is transferred upward in plants.
5) Define transpiration.
6) Using the pressure-flow model, explain how fluids move through a plant.
7) Draw a simple picture of a seed. Label the following parts: embryo, cotyledon, endosperm, and seed coat.
8) Describe the structure and function relationship between each of these seed parts: embryo, cotyledon, endosperm, and seed coat.
9) Describe the process of germination.
10) Draw a simple cross-section of a leaf and label the following structures: cuticle, epidermis, palisade mesophyll, spongy mesophyll, stomata, vascular tissue
11) Describe the structure of each of these leaf structures and then make a structure-function connection:
cuticle, epidermis, palisade mesophyll, spongy mesophyll, stomata
12) What are the leaf’s roles in the ecosystem?
13) What is the role of the flower in the life of a plant?
14) Draw a simple diagram of a flower and label the following structures: stigma, style, carpel, ovary, ovule, anther, filament, stamen, petal, sepal
15) Describe the structure and function relationship between each of these flower parts: stigma, style, anther, filament, petal
16) Describe the system relationship between pollinators and flowers.
17) Describe the process of fertilization within a flower.
18) What is the role of a fruit in the life of a plant?
19) Describe the structure-function relationships that can be found among the four different types of fruit.
