Presentation Transcript

Slide1Structures and Functions of LivingOrganisms 6.L.1 Understand the structures, processes and behaviors of plants that          enable them to survive and reproduce. Essential Vocabulary

Slide26.L.1 Understand the structures, processes and         behaviors of plants that enable them to          survive and reproduce. petals, stem, sepal, stamen, anther, ovule, pistil, filament, style, sexual reproduction, fertilization, pollination, sterile, pollen, pollinator, ovary, egg cell, sperm, photosynthesis, respiration, chlorophyll, glucose, epidermis, stomata, transpiration, carbon dioxide, oxygen, guard cells, vascular plants, nonvascular plants, xylem, phloem, aroma, nectar, mimicry, camouflage, perfect flower, imperfect flower, root, pigment, chloroplasts

Slide3PetalsOne of the ring or rings of the usually brightly colored, leaf-shaped parts of a flower.

Slide4StemThe main body or stalk of a plant or shrub.

Slide5SepalIn a flower, one of the outermost rings of modified leaves that protect the flower bud.

Slide6StamenMale reproductive organ inside the flower of an angiosperm; consists of an anther, where pollen grains form, and a filament.

Slide7AntherA saclike structure that produces pollen.

Slide8OvuleIn seed plants, the female reproductive part that produces eggs.

Slide9PistilFemale reproductive organ inside the flower of an angiosperm; consists of a sticky stigma, where pollen grains land, and an ovary. Also, called carpel.

Slide10FilamentThe slender part of a stamen that supports the anther.

Slide11StyleA narrow, typically elongated extension of the ovary, bearing the stigma.

Slide12Sexual ReproductionA process that creates a new organism by combining the genetic material of two organisms.

Slide13FertilizationSexual union of two plants.

Slide14PollinationTransfer of pollen grains to the female part of a seed plant by agents such as gravity, water, wind, and animals.

Slide15SterileNot able to produce fruit or seeds.

Slide16PollenA fine powdery substance, typically yellow, consisting of microscopic grains discharged from the male part of a flower or from a male cone.

Slide17PollinatorSomething that moves pollen from the male parts to the female parts.

Slide18OvarySwollen base of the pistil where ovules are found.

Slide19Egg CellThe female reproductive cell; the female gamete

Slide20SpermThe male reproductive cell; the male gamete

Slide21PhotosynthesisThe process by which plants makes food.

Slide22RespirationThe process where cells use oxygen to help generate their energy. Also called cellular respiration.

Slide23ChlorophyllA pigment, or green coloring matter, that helps plants use light energy to produce sugars.

Slide24GlucosePlant starch or food; A type of sugar; the chief source of energy for living organisms.  A simple six-carbon sugar C 6 H 12 O 6 .

Slide25EpidermisA single-layered group of cells that covers plants leaves, flowers, roots and stems.

Slide26StomataTiny openings on the underside of a leaf that allow water and carbon dioxide to enter and leave the plant.

Slide27TranspirationProcess through which evaporation occurs through the leaves of a plant.

Slide28Carbon DioxideWaste gas eliminated by the lungs

Slide29OxygenA gas that exists naturally in the atmosphere and is produced by plants during photosynthesis that humans and other animals breathe.

Slide30Guard CellsSpecialized crescent-shaped cells that control the opening and closing of a stomata.

Slide31Vascular PlantsPlants that have tubes.

Slide32Nonvascular PlantsPlants that do not have tubes.

Slide33XylemThe tubes (or vascular tissue) that transport water and minerals upwards from a plant's roots in vascular plants.

Slide34PhloemThe tubes (or vascular tissues) that transport food in the vascular plants downward from the leaves to the rest of the plants.

Slide35AromaA scent used by plants to attract pollinators for reproduction.

Slide36NectarA sugary fluid secreted by plants, esp. within flowers to encourage pollination by insects and other animals. It is collected by bees to make into honey.


Slide38CamouflageTo hide or disguise the presence of a person, animal, or object.

Slide39Perfect FlowerA flower that has both male and female parts.

Slide40Imperfect FlowerA flower that is missing either male or female parts.

Slide41RootThe part of a plant that attaches it to the ground or to a support, typically underground, conveying water and nourishment to the rest of the plant via numerous branches and fibers.

Slide42PigmentA substance that reflects a particular part of the visible spectrum and absorbs the rest.

Slide43ChloroplastsA plastid that contains chlorophyll and in which  photosynthesis takes place .
