    • *a standard breast cancer chemo-treatment is Taxol...if interested, look up its source
  2. How do farmers maximize the development and yield of corn, broccoli, cabbage, etc?
    SELECTIVE BREEDING
  3. Which hormone stimulates cell elongation in the root and stem?
    AUXIN
  4. Which part of the plant releases ethylene gas?
    FRUIT
  5. Which plant hormone is a ‘growth hormone’ causing the plant to increase in size?
    GIBBERLLIN
  6. If a plant was laid horizontally what would happen?
    • AUXINS IN THE LOWER SIDES OF THE STEM CAUSE CELL ELONGATION AND
    • CAUSE THE STEM TO BEND UPRIGHT (90 degrees)
  7. What is it called when a shoot bends towards the light?
    PHOTOTROPISM
  8. How do you describe the growth of plant seedlings?
    PHOTOTROPIC (Stems grow towards light.) & GRAVITROPIC (Roots grow downwards.)
  9. What is it called when ivy tendrils wrap around a pole?
    THIGMOTROPISM
  10. When a plant responds to changes in the day’s length/season what is it responding to?
    PHOTOPERIOD
  11. Why do many leaves change color in the fall?
    • THE PRODUCTION OF ANTHOCYANIN (a red pigment) INCREASES AND THE
    • PRODUCTION OF CHLOROPHYLL (a green pigment) decreases
  12. How is offspring made from a plant that reproduces vegetatively?
    BY MITOSIS (CELL DIVISION) ALONE
  13. How is vegetative reproduction a disadvantage?
    • WHEN CONDITIONS IN THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT SUDDENLY CHANGE
    • (ex. a nuclear cloud descends)
  14. Where is pollen produced (in angiosperms = flowering plants)?

  17. What is true about a flower pollinated with the help of animals such as bees?
    • THEY ARE BRIGHTLY COLORED
    • THEY PRODUCE NECTAR TO ATTRACT POLLINATORS
    • THEY POLLINATE MORE EFFICIENTLY THAN WIND-POLLINATED PLANTS
  18. What are fruits and seeds?
    FRUITS ARE MATURED OVARIES THAT CONTAIN SEEDS (embryos)
  19. What is the advantage of an embryonic plant being dispersed far from the parent plant?
    THIS ELIMINATES COMPETITION WITH THE PARENT PLANT
  20. When is a seed alive but not growing?
    DURING DORMANCY
  21. What is the advantage of a seed going dormant?
    IT CAN SPROUT WHEN CONDITIONS ARE IDEAL
  22. When does a plant embryo begin to grow?
    DURING GERMINATION
  23. How are seeds spread by wind and water characterized?
    LIGHTWEIGHT
