Photosynthesis Review Definition: process to convert light energy

Photosynthesis Review Definition: process to convert light energy to chemical energy (glucose) that will be used to fuel the organisms life processes Equation: Plant Characteristics

Multicellular Eukaryote Photosynthetic Roots (to anchor & absorb) Plant Classification

Characterized by tissue - Vascular or Nonvascular Vascular Tissue Has transport tissues called xylem & phloem.

Grows larger than nonvascular plants Divided into two categories: 1.Seedless Vascular 2.Vascular Seed Seedless Vascular

Usually contain spores If no spores present, then needs water for reproduction Examples: Ferns

Horsetails Club Mosses Club Mosses - Epiphytes Epiphyte: Plant that lives

anchored to another plant (not parasitic) Vascular Seed Uses seeds as mechanism for reproduction No longer dependent on

water for reproduction Examples Gymnosperm Angiosperm Seeds

Seed Categories: divided by seed leaves called cotyledons One seed leaf monocot Two seed leaves dicot Adaptations for dispersal Ex) Spikes cling to fur Ex) Wings catch the wind

Monocot vs Dicot Seed Adaptations for Dispersal Gymnosperm Characteristics

Naked Seeds Do not produce flowers or fruit Usually use cones for reproduction Adaptation for land:

needle-like leaves to reduce water loss Gymnosperm Examples Conifers (cone bearing plants) Cycads

Gingkoes Gnetophytes Angiosperm Characteristics Flowering Plants Produce Fruit

Make up 75% of the Plant Kingdom Angiosperm Lifespan Annual one growing season Biennial

2 years Perennial several years
