Plant

  1. 1. Vascular Plants and Nonvascular PlantsVascular Plants and Nonvascular PlantsVascular Plants have tubes to carry water& nutrients up to the top of the plantsexample: trees and other plantsNonvascular Plants grow low to the groundabsorb moisture & nutrients through osmosis& diffusion (like a sponge) example: mosses What biomes would probably not havenonvascular plants? Why?Tundra and Desert (not enough moisture)Why are vascular plants able to grow larger thannonvascular plants?Because they have tubes to carry water up to the top ofthe plant
  2. 2. Functions…Absorbing waterStore Food (vegetables: potatoes, carrots, etc)Anchor the plantTypes…Taproot – example: carrotFibrous rootRoots
  3. 3. LeavesFunctionsPhotosynthesis – using light to makefoodLose water (transpiration)-Take in Carbon Dioxide& let out Oxygen(photosynthesis)Stomata - Holes in theunderside of leaves
  4. 4. Functions…Some photosynthesisSupportTransport of nutrients through thetwo Vascular Tissues1. Phloem – carries food from theleaves to the roots (moves down)2. Xylem – carries water from theroots to the leaves (moves up)Stems
  5. 5. FlowersPollenStyle (female part)Ovary –developsinto fruitCollects pollenStamen(male part)-producespollenFunctions…ReproductionPollen (Plant Sperm) - An adaptation thatallows plants to reproduce sexually whileremaining stationary
  6. 6. PollinationPollinationSelf pollination – plant pollinates itselfCross pollination – plant pollinates another plantInsect pollination – colorful fragrant flowerWind pollination – wind carries pollento another plant (ah-choo!)Seeds (plant babies) – The product ofSuccessful pollination
  7. 7. Seed DispersalSeed DispersalPrickly hooks – carried by organisms on their furWings (helicopter seeds) – carried by the windFruit covered seeds – carried by the organism thatate the fruit, eventually the seed is dropped onto theground along with some great natural fertilizer 
