Chrysophyllum cainito

11 gelatinous, somewhat rubbery, seed cells in the center which, when cut through transversely, are seen to radiate from the central core like an asterisk or many-pointed star, giving the fruit its common English name. The fruit may have up to 10 flattened, nearly oval, pointed, hard seeds, 3/4 in (2 cm.) long, nearly 1/2 in (1.25 cm) wide, and up to 1/4 in (6 mm) thick, but usually several of the cells are not occupied and the best fruits have as few as 3 seeds. They appear black at first, with...

Certain mycorrhizae are more beneficial to different plant hosts due preferential allocation of photosynthate by host plants (Zhang et al. 2010). In the following study, the effects of mycorrhizae on the germination and growth of rapid grow radish seed were investigated. The hypothesis for the experiment is the presence of mycorrhizae for a mutualistic, symbiotic association with the radish promoting growth and germination. METHODS Initially, 4L of potting soil was sterilized by placing it in...

staple fiber that grown in a form known as a boll around the seeds of the cotton plant, a shrub native to tropical and subtropical regions. Cotton fibers are mainly made up of cellulose. Under natural conditions, the cotton bolls will tend to increase the dispersion of the seeds. The cotton fibers are attached to the seeds inside the boll of the plant. There are usually six or seven seeds in a boll and up to 20,000 fibers attached to each seed. The fiber is most often spun into yarn or thread and used...

Lab Experiment: Effect of Amount of Water on Plant Growth

the plant to its longest length. Background: The amount of water for growing a plant has always been questioned regarding how much of it is most effective to grow the plant to its greatest potential. Too little water will not effectively grow the seed because it would require more water for photosynthesis. If there is not enough water, photosynthesis will not occur as much and will not produce as much C6H12O6 (sugar) it needs to construct cellulose for its cell walls (its structure), produce ATP...

Bio 100 Allelopathy Lab

Baden Bio 100 – 05 ALLELOPATHY INTRODUCTION The purpose of this lab was to observe the effects of chemical warfare among plants. Plant seeds compete with other plants and seeds, for sunlight, and nutrients in order to germinate. In order to win dominance over other seeds, and reduce competition, plants produce and release a chemical in order to prevent other seeds from germination. This type of chemical warfare is referred to as allelopathy. Allelopathy exists in many parts of the plants such as...
