  • Biology Plant Separation/ Identification

    Separation and Identification of Plant Pigments by Paper Chromatography Biology 1107L Introduction All living organisms require energy for their chemical processes. The ultimate source of this energy is the sun. Plants convert light energy into the chemical energy of sugars. During photosynthesis pigments are used to capture light energy. Pigments of green plants can easily be separated and identified using a technique called paper chromatography. The purpose of this

  • Plants Responses Into Water Stress

    for plant growth as well as crop physiology. Almost every plant process is affected directly or indirectly by water supply. Plants‚ as one of basic food sources‚ either in nature or cultivations‚ in their growing period‚ require water or at least moisture for germination. Certainly‚ most land plants are exposed to short or long term water stress at some times in their life cycle and have tended to develop some adaptive mechanisms for adapting to changing environmental conditions. Some plants may

  • Climate Change Affect Plants

    How Does Climate Change Affect Plants? Historical climate change has had a profound effect on current biogeography‚ so we can expect our ongoing and rapid climate change‚ to have as great an effect. Climate change has important implications for nearly every aspect of life on Earth‚ and effects are already being felt. * Temperatureeffects–average‚ minimum or maximum can be important determinants of plant distribution For example the Palmae/Arecaceae are cold intolerant as their single meristem

  • Plant Responses

    PLANT RESPONSES TROPISM is a biological phenomenon‚ indicating growth or turning movement of a biological organism‚ usually a plant‚ in response to an environmental stimulus. In tropisms‚ this response is dependent on the direction of the species. The word tropism comes from the Greek trope ("to turn" or "to change"). Tropisms are usually named for the stimulus involved and may be either positive (towards the stimulus) or negative (away from the stimulus). Phototropism is the growth response

The physiological definition of growth is “An irreversible change in the organism‚ organ or cell is called growth”‚ which includes increase in mass weight or volume of living organism‚ it leads to development in plants. REGION OF GROWTH: Growth region is located at extreme apices of root‚ stem‚ leaf where we make out meristematic tissue. In addition to above‚ the region where intercalary and lateral meristem is present is also considered as growth region. PHASES

  • Plant Sexuality

    Plant Sexuality BIO 210- 01 Plant sexuality has a wide range of topics about sexual reproduction systems found across the plant kingdom. Flowers‚ which are the reproductive units of angiosperms‚ amongst all living things are physically varied the most. They also show the greatest diversity in methods of reproduction of all biological systems. The system for classifying flowering plants was proposed by Carolus Linnaeus‚ which is based on plant structures. Plants employ several different

  • Fast Plants

    Fast Plants By: Kinser Haselhuhn Biology 111 Section Y Professor Brittingham 4/19/13 Abstract: Introduction: Materials and Methods: To begin the fast plants experiment‚ each group received the F1 generation seeds for their designated phenotypes. After receiving the seeds‚ the seeds were then planted into Styrofoam “quads” allowing the seeds to germinate. The seeds were then allowed to grow under a fluorescent light bank for 5 weeks. Throughout the growing of the seeds‚ each plant
