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).

  1. Photosynthesis
    1. Explain the function of photosynthesis.
    2. Write the chemical equation for photosynthesis.
    3. Describe the parts of the plant needed for the photosynthesis system.
  2. Respiration
    1. Explain the function of respiration.
    2. Write the chemical equation for respiration.
    3. Describe the parts of the plant needed for the respiration system.
    4. Compare and contrast respiration and photosynthesis.
  3. Transpiration
    1. Explain two functions of transpiration.
    2. Describe the parts of the plant needed for the transpiration system.
    3. Explain the dilemma of plants growing in hot dry regions.
    4. Explain how sunken stomata, 'hairy' leaves, small leaves and alternative photosynthetic processes such as CAM and C4 are transpirational adaptations.
  4. Vascular System
    1. Explain the function of the vascular system.
    2. Explain how transplant shock is a failure of the vascular system.
  5. Plant Growth and Development
    1. Compare and contrast growth and development.
    2. Compare and contrast primary and secondary plant growth.
    3. Explain what we mean when we say meristem is capable of differentiation.
    4. Contrast apical and lateral meristems.
