  1. 1. Botany Basics John PunchesOregon State University
  2. 2. Botany is...The study of plants.
  3. 3. Plants in our EcosystemCapture sun’s energyFood sourceReplenish atmospheric oxygenParticipate in water cycleModerate world climateProvide shelterSource of numerous raw materials
  4. 4. Botany AppliedIdentify plantsGrow & propagate plantsInfluence flowering & fruit productionControl unwanted growthMaintain plant healthModify plant features
  5. 5. Reading
  6. 6. Basic ClassificationsVascular vs. Non-vascularSeed vs. SeedlessFlowering vs. FlowerlessBig 2 Vascular Plant Divisions  Flowering Plants (Anthophyta)  Cone Bearing Plants (Coniferophyta)
  7. 7. Plant Life CyclesAnnuals - complete life cycle (seed to seed) in one yearBiennials - require all or part of 2 years to complete life cyclePerennials - live longer than 2 years  Herbaceous - soft stems that die back in winter  Woody - trees, shrubs, etc.
  8. 8. Monocots vs Dicots Structure Monocots Dicots Seed Leaves One TwoVascular System Xylem & phloem Xylem & phloem in in bundles, dispersed rings; xylem inner ring, in stem phloem outer ring Floral Parts Usually threes or Usually in multiples multiples of three of four or five Leaves Often parallel-veined Generally net-veined

  31. 31. Stem TissuesXylem - conduct water & mineralsPhloem - carry sugars & starchesEpidermis - Outermost layer of plant tissue, protective layerCortex - primary tissue surrounding vascular bundlesPith - thin-walled cells at center of stem
  32. 32. Specialized Above-Ground StemsCrowns - compressed stems with leaves and flowers on short internodesSpurs - short side stems arising from main stem, often bear fruit on treesStolons - fleshy or semiwoody, elongated, horizontal stems, often at soil surface
  33. 33. Specialized Underground StemsTuber - enlarged, short, fleshy underground stem tipRhizome - horizontal underground stem, may be compressed and fleshy or slender with elongated internodesBulb - short, compressed, underground stem with central bud at tip of stem, surrounded by fleshy scales (leaves)
  34. 34. Specialized Underground StemsCorm - solid, swollen underground stem with dry, scale-like leavesTuberous stem - short, flat, enlarged underground stem with buds and shoots at top and fibrous roots at bottom
  35. 35. Leaves
  36. 36. Leaf FunctionsPhotosynthesis - use sunlight to make foodRespiration - use food to make energyTranspiration - lose water (as vapor) to atmosphere

  44. 44. Types of LeavesScale leaves (cataphylls) - enclose and protect rhizomes and budsSeed leaves (cotyledons) - store food for seedlingsSpines & Tendrils - protect or help supportStorage leaves - found on bulbous plants & succulents, store foodBracts - modified, often brightly-colored leaves around flowers

  51. 51. Flower TypesComplete  all floral organs present (sepals, petals, stamens, pistil)Incomplete  flower lacks 1 or more of the 4 organs
  52. 52. Flower TypesPerfect - has both stamen (male organs) and pistil (female organ)Imperfect - having only one type of organ  Staminate - male organ present  Pistillate - female organ present

  55. 55. Species with Imperfect FlowersMonoecious  both pistillate and staminate flowers occur on same plant • birch, pecan, squashDioecious  pistillate are on one plant, staminate on a different plant • ginkgo, holly, pistachio, kiwi
  56. 56. PollinationExchange of pollenNumerous mechanisms  insects, birds, bats, wind, rainFlowers are optimized for their pollination vector
