Plant Process Practice
011103 1.02 I can describe cellular theory and cellular structures through knowledge of the plant processes (including photosynthesis, respiration, transpiration and vascular systems).
- Explain the function of photosynthesis.
- Write the chemical equation for photosynthesis.
- Describe the parts of the plant needed for the photosynthesis system.
- Explain the function of respiration.
- Write the chemical equation for respiration.
- Describe the parts of the plant needed for the respiration system.
- Compare and contrast respiration and photosynthesis.
- Explain two functions of transpiration.
- Describe the parts of the plant needed for the transpiration system.
- Explain the dilemma of plants growing in hot dry regions.
- Explain how sunken stomata, 'hairy' leaves, small leaves and alternative photosynthetic processes such as CAM and C4 are transpirational adaptations.
- Vascular System
- Explain the function of the vascular system.
- Explain how transplant shock is a failure of the vascular system.
- Plant Growth and Development
- Compare and contrast growth and development.
- Compare and contrast primary and secondary plant growth.
- Explain what we mean when we say meristem is capable of differentiation.
- Contrast apical and lateral meristems.
