Plant anatomy & physiology

  1. 1. Plant Anatomy & Physiology By: Johnny M. Jessup Agricultural Instructor/FFA Advisor
  2. 2. The Four Basic Parts of Plants  Leaves  Stems  Roots  Flowers
  3. 3. Leaves  Functions  Make food through photosynthesis  Site of gas exchange  Respiration  Photosynthesis  Store food
  4. 4. Tissues of the Leaf (Epidermis)  Cuticle  Waxy substance that covers the leaves & stems  Waterproof layer that keeps water in plants
  5. 5. Tissues of the Leaf (Epidermis)  Stomata  Openings in the epidermis mainly located on the underside of leaves  Exchange of gases
  6. 6. Tissues of the Leaf (Epidermis)  Guard Cells  Two cells located on each side of stomata  Open and closes stomata
  7. 7. Tissues of the Leaf (Mesophyll Layer)  Palisade mesophyll  Primary site of photosynthesis  Spongy mesophyll  Contains air & chloroplasts  Site of photosynthesis and gas exchange
  8. 8. Tissues of the Leaf  Vascular Bundles  Called veins  In spongy mesophyll  Phloem moves food from leaf to the rest of the plant  Xylem moves water & minerals up to leaves from roots
  9. 9. Tissues of the Leaf
  10. 10. External Parts of the Leaf  Petiole  Leaf stalk or part that connects the leaf to the stem.  Blade  The large, flat part of a leaf.  Midrib  The large center vein.
  11. 11. External Parts of the Leaf
  12. 12. Leaf Forms
  13. 13. Leaf Margins
  14. 14. Leaf Tips
  15. 15. Leaf Bases
  16. 16. Leaf Arrangements (Simple)
  17. 17. Leaf Arrangements (Compound)
  18. 18. Leaf Crops
  19. 19. Stems  Functions  Movement of materials  Water & minerals from roots to leaves  Manufactured food from leaves to roots  Support leaves & reproductive structures  Food storage
  20. 20. External Stem Structure  Lenticels  Breathing pores.  Bud Scale Scars  Show where terminal buds have been located.  Leaf Scars  Show where leaves were attached.
  21. 21. External Stem Structure  Terminal Bud  Bud on the end of the stem.  Axillary Lateral Bud  Bud on the side of the stem.
  22. 22. External Stem Structure
  23. 23. Internal Stem Structure  Xylem  The tissue that transports water & nutrients up from roots to stems & leaves.  Phloem  Tissue that transports food down from leaves to roots.  Cambium  Thin, green, actively growing tissue located between bark & wood and produces all new stems cells.
  24. 24. Internal Stem Structure  Bark  Old, inactive phloem.  Heartwood  Old, inactive xylem.  Sapwood  New, active xylem.
  25. 25. Internal Stem Structure (Monocots)  Vascular bundles contain both xylem & phloem.  Examples:  Grasses  Corn
  26. 26. Monocot Stems (Vascular Bundle)
  27. 27. Internal Stem Structure (Dicots)  Plant stems have xylem & phloem separated by the cambium.  Example:  Trees
  28. 28. Internal Stem Structure (Dicots)
  29. 29. Specialized Types of Stems  Corm  Underground  Solid, fleshy, scale covered  Examples  Gladiolus  Crocus
  30. 30. Specialized Types of Stems  Bulb  Layers of fleshy scales that overlap each other  Underground stem  Examples  Tulips  Lilies  Onions                   
  31. 31. Specialized Types of Stems  Tubers  Food Storage Area  Short, thick underground stem  Examples  Potato  Caladium
  32. 32. Specialized Types of Stems  Crown  Closely grouped stems or plantlets  Just above or below ground  Examples  African violet  Ferns
  33. 33. Specialized Types of Stems  Spurs  Short stems found on woody limbs adapted for increased fruit production  Examples  Apple  Pear
  34. 34. Specialized Types of Stems  Rhizomes  Underground stems that produce roots on the lower surface and extend leaves and flower shoots above ground  Examples  Iris  Lily of the Valley
  35. 35. Specialized Types of Stems  Stolens  Stem that grows horizontally above the soil surface  Examples  Strawberries  Airplane Plant
  36. 36. Stem Crops
  37. 37. Roots  Functions  Anchor the plant  Absorb water & minerals  Store food  Propagate or reproduce some plants
  38. 38. Different Types of Roots  Tap Root  One main root, no nodes  Continuation of the primary root  Ideal for anchorage  Penetration is greater for water  Storage area for food
  39. 39. Different Types of Roots  Fibrous Root  Many finely branched secondary roots  Shallow roots cover a large area  More efficient absorption of water & minerals  Roots hold the soil to prevent erosion
  40. 40. Different Types of Roots  Aerial Roots  Clinging air roots  Short roots that grow horizontally from the stems  Roots that fasten the plant to a support  Absorptive air roots  Absorb moisture from the air
  41. 41. Different Types of Roots  Adventitious Roots  Develop in places other than nodes  Form on cuttings & rhizomes
  42. 42. External Parts of Roots  Root Cap  Indicates growth of new cells.
  43. 43. External Parts of Roots  Root Hairs  Tiny one celled hair- like extensions of the epidermal cells located near the tips of roots.  Increase surface area.  Absorb water & minerals.
  44. 44. Internal Parts of Roots  Much like those of stems with phloem, cambium and xylem layers.  Phloem  The outer layer.  Carries food down the plant.  Xylem  The inner layer.  Carries water & minerals up to the stem.
  45. 45. Root Crops
  46. 46. Flowers  Function  Contain the sexual organs for the plant.  Produces fruit, which protects, nourishes and carries seeds.  Attracts insects for pollination.
  47. 47. Parts of the Flower  Sepals  Outer covering of the flower bud.  Protects the stamens and pistils when flower is in bud stage.  Collectively known as the calyx.
  48. 48. Parts of the Flower  Petals  Brightly colored  Protects stamen & pistils.  Attracts pollinating insects.  Collectively called the corolla.
  49. 49. Parts of the Flower (Stamen)  Male reproductive part  Anther  Produces pollen  Filament  Supports the anther
  50. 50. Parts of the Flower (Pistil)  Female reproductive part  Ovary  Enlarged portion at base of pistil  Produces ovules which develop into seeds  Stigma  Holds the pollen grains
  51. 51. Parts of the Flower (Pistil)  Style  Connects the stigma with the ovary  Supports the stigma so that it can be pollinated
  52. 52. Parts of the Flower
  53. 53. Imperfect Flower  Male or female reproductive organs not, but not both.  Example:  A male flower has sepals, petals, and stamen, but no pistils.  A female flower has sepals, petals, and pistils, but no stamen.
  54. 54. Perfect Flowers  Contains both male and female reproductive structures.
  55. 55. Incomplete Flowers  Missing one of the four major parts of the flower.  Stamen  Pistil  Sepal  Petal
  56. 56. Complete Flowers  Contains male and female reproductive organs along with petals and sepals.
  57. 57. Flowers  Imperfect flowers are always incomplete but……..  Perfect flowers are not always complete and……..  Complete flowers are always perfect.
  58. 58. Importance of Flowers  Important in florist & nursery businesses.  Many plants are grown solely for their flowers.  Plants have flowers to attract insects for pollination, but people grow them for beauty & economic value.
