  • VASCULAR PLANT ORGANS JJA OBICO Instructor, Dept. of Biology CAS UP M ilCAS, UP Manila
  • Apical Meristemp • Shoot Apical Meristem Root Apical Meristem• Root Apical Meristem
  • Primary Growthy • Increase in length of roots and shoots Caused by APICAL MERISTEMS• Caused by APICAL MERISTEMS • Outcome: PRIMARY PLANT BODY APICAL MERISTEMS • Give rise to primary meristems• Give rise to primary meristems
  • Primary meristemsy • Produces tissues of the primary plant body Consists of:Consists of: 1. Protoderm Primary dermal tissue/ epidermisPrimary dermal tissue/ epidermis 2. Procambium Primary vascular tissuePrimary vascular tissue 3. Ground meristem Ground tissue
  • Primary meristems Primary tissuesPrimary meristems Primary tissues Protoderm Dermal Tissue (Epidermis) Apical Meristem Ground meristem Ground Tissue (parenchyma, ll hcollenchyma, sclerenchyma) Vascular Tissue Procambium Vascular Tissue (Primary Xylem and Phloem)
  • Lateral Meristems • aka secondary meristems Causes thickening of the stems and roots• Causes thickening of the stems and roots ▫ SECONDARY GROWTH Common in eudicots and gymnospermsCommon in eudicots and gymnosperms Rare in monocots • Single-cell layers of meristematic cells that usually form cylinders running lengthwise along t ta stem or root
  • L l iLateral meristem • Vascular cambium C k bi• Cork cambium

  • ROOT • Anchors the plant • Absorbs water and• Absorbs water and minerals • Root hairs
  • Patterns of root growthg • Taproot system ▫ Most eudicots gymnosperms▫ Most eudicots, gymnosperms • Fibrous root systemFibrous root system ▫ Seedless vascular plants, monocots ▫ Adventitious roots ▫ More shallow and horizontal ▫ Common in dry regions
  • • Zone of cell division ▫ Root apical meristem and primary meristemsRoot apical meristem and primary meristems • Zone of elongation ▫ Derivatives stop dividing and begin to grow in length • Zone of maturation ▫ Cells begin specializing in structure and function▫ Cells begin specializing in structure and function into different cells types, epidermal cells and conducting cells R h i▫ Root hairs
  • External Structures • Root cap ▫ Protects the apical meristem▫ Protects the apical meristem ▫ Helps the root penetrate the soil ▫ Secretes mucigel- slimy polysaccharide forSecretes mucigel slimy polysaccharide for lubrication • Root hairs ▫ Zone of maturation ▫ Where most of absorption of water and mineral occurs
  • Tissues of the root • Epidermis Cortex• Cortex • Endodermis • Stele• Stele ▫ Pericycle ▫ Vascular TissuesVascular Tissues ▫ Pith*

  • • Aerial roots – epiphytes Buttress roots flared roots extending from tree• Buttress roots – flared roots extending from tree trunks • Contractile roots• Contractile roots • Suckers- asexual reproduction • PneumatophoresPneumatophores • Mycorrhiza- absorption of P ▫ Endomycorrhizay ▫ Ectomycorrhiza
