  • Aquatic Plants - 1089 Words
    There are more to aquatic plants than just floating on the surface of water. Aquatic plants are plants that can adapt and live in a freshwater environment. They are sometimes called hydrophytes. These include plants that live in fresh wetlands, swamps, ponds, lakes, and marshes. This type of plant actually serves two important functions. First, they help oxygenate water (2006) and they provide nutrients and food for some fishes (Tappin, 2003). There are many types of aquatic plants including...

  • Seed Plants - 762 Words
    The three main organs in a plant are roots , stems, and leaves. Roots absorb water and dissolved nutrients from soil. They anchor plants to the ground. Roots are able to do all of these jobs because they grow , they develop complex branching networks that penetrate the soil and grow between soil particles. Stems hold a plants leaves up to the sun. Leaves are the organ in which plants capture the suns energy. These tissues must be protected against water loss to dry air. That’s why most plants...

  • Plant Reproduction - 756 Words
    Plants have two different ways to reproduce. The first one is vegetative reproduction. With this type all the plants that have the same parent have the same genetic make-up. This also lets plants pass adaptations on that they have abtained over the years. Plants with good genetic make-up usually spread quickly and take over an area. An example of this would be the dandelion. These plants can sprout from any part of the plant. An example of this is the potato, farmers will pick the potatoes and...

    Biology 9 CP Per 3 November 7, 2011 Plants and Nitrogen Lab Report Introduction: Plants need ammonia, a combination of nitrogen and hydrogen, or nitrate, a form of inorganic nitrogen to grow. Most nitrogen is found in the atmosphere. However, plants and animals cannot directly absorb the nitrogen found in the atmosphere. Instead nitrogen gas is captured from the air by species of bacteria that lie in the water, soil, or grow on the roots of some plants. These bacteria convert...

    1. Water diffuses into a plant through its root hairs and then travels into the parenchymal cells of the cortex along the symplast and the apoplast. Then the water moves to the endodermis where it freely passes into the vascular cylinder and into the xylem. Once the water is in the xylem it moves upward toward the leaves. Then the water diffuses from the roots where the water potential is the highest to the air spaces in the leaves where the water potential is the lowest. From the veins in the...

  • Adaptations plants had to make to be able to survive on land
    Many years ago, plants made the drastic move from water onto land. Although at first they had a very difficult time surviving on land, they gradually became acclimated to their new terrestrial habitat. This was only after they had formed adaptations to overcome a slew of problems that plagued them on land. For example, they had needed an aquatic environment for both reproduction and to support the plant body, and they had to adapt to living without their aquatic surroundings. In addition, they...

    Flower induction in mango (SAMPLE) Introduction: Different mango varieties naturally produce fruit every other year. That is, there are years or seasons in which a tree or the crop may be very not efficient, producing almost no fruits. For trees to be productive annually, flower inducers are used to stimulate flower growth during the ‘off’ seasons of the tree variety. Inducers increase number of viable blooms for increased production and harvest. Inducers work best on healthy, mature trees...
