Plant tissue2

  1. 1. Plant Tissues Chapter 26 Jin Hoe Huh March 28, 2005
  2. 2. Angiosperms – flowering plants <ul><li>The angiosperms are seed-bearing vascular plants </li></ul><ul><li>In terms of distribution and diversity, they are the most successful plants on Earth </li></ul><ul><li>The structure and function of this plant group help explain its success </li></ul>
  3. 3. Flowering Plant Life Cycle Double fertilization Meiosis Meiosis microspores Female gametophyte pollination Mitosis without cytoplasmic division Two sperm s enter ovule Diploid Haploid
  4. 4. Plant Life Histories <ul><li>Annuals complete life cycle in one growing season </li></ul><ul><li>Biennials live for two seasons; flowers form in second season </li></ul><ul><li>Perennials grow and produce seeds year after year </li></ul>
  5. 5. Shoot System Root System <ul><li>Root system </li></ul><ul><li>anchors the plant </li></ul><ul><li>penetrates the soil and absorbs water and minerals </li></ul><ul><li>stores food </li></ul><ul><li>Shoot system </li></ul><ul><li>produces sugars by photosynthesis </li></ul><ul><li>carries out reproduction </li></ul>Shoot and Root Systems

  9. 9. Apical Meristems activity at meristems new cells elongate and start to differentiate into primary tissues procambium  primary vascular tissues protoderm  epidermis Cells that form at apical meristems : ground meristem  ground tissues Lengthen shoots and roots: SAM and RAM

  14. 14. Collenchyma: A Simple Tissue <ul><li>Specialized for support for primary tissues </li></ul><ul><li>Cells are elongated, with walls (especially corners) thickened with pectin </li></ul><ul><li>Makes stems strong but pliable </li></ul><ul><li>Cells are alive at maturity </li></ul>

  18. 18. Phloem: A Complex Vascular Tissue <ul><li>Transports sugars </li></ul><ul><li>Main conducting cells are sieve-tube members </li></ul><ul><li>Companion cells assist in the loading of sugars </li></ul>sieve plate sieve-tube member companion cell
  19. 19. Epidermis: A Complex Plant Tissue <ul><li>- Covers and protects plant surfaces </li></ul><ul><li>- Secretes a waxy, waterproof cuticle </li></ul><ul><li>- In plants with secondary growth, periderm replaces epidermis </li></ul>
  20. 20. Monocots and Dicots – same tissues, different features Parallel veins Netlike veins 3 pores 1 pore 4 or 5 floral parts 3 floral parts 1 cotyledon 2 cotyledons Vascular bundles dispersed Vascular bundles in ring

  22. 22. Bud = undeveloped shoot of meristematic tissue Internode Leaves Axillary bud at node Longitudinal section of terminal bud
  23. 23. Roots also have meristems
  24. 24. Internal Structure of a Dicot Stem <ul><li>- Outermost layer is epidermis </li></ul><ul><li>- Cortex lies beneath epidermis </li></ul><ul><li>- Ring of vascular bundles separates the cortex from the pith </li></ul><ul><li>- The pith lies in the center of the stem </li></ul>
