  5. The point on the stem where a leaf is attached is called the:
  6. the space along the stem btwn nodes is the:
  7. Many leaves lack petioles and are termed:
  8. The base of the leaf is expanded out into a _______ which wraps around the stem and is sessile
  9. Have only one blade
  10. the blade consists of two or more leaflets
  11. one of the two compound leaves where the leaflets are arranged along a central axis that is an extension of the petiole
  12. one of the two compound leaves where the leaflets all arise from a common point at the end of the petiole
  13. How can leaflets be distinguished from leaves?
    leaves have axillary buds and leaflets do not
  14. leaves possess a wide variety of patterns of _____ which contain the sylem and phloem

    palmately netted
  19. 3 or more leaves at each node
  20. tough outer layer of the leaf that helps protect the inner tissues and provieds structural support
  21. Main photosynthetic tissue fo the leaf
    Mesophyll Tissue
  22. Xylem and phloem are the conducting tissues which together with other tissues form the:
    vascular bundles, or veins
  23. Plants growing in very wet environments where they are wholly or partly submerged in water are called:
  24. Plants with leaves adapted to dry habitats are:
  25. Plants that require a moderately moist environment:
  26. Epidermal cells secrete a waxy layer on their outer surfaces to retard water loss called:
  27. epidermal cells may be sqecialized to form hairs called:
  28. Epidermal tissue typically contain many thousands of minute pores called:
  29. Each stoma consists of a pore surrounded by two ____________ that contain chloroplasts
    guard cells
  30. Large cells arranged in longitudinal rows that act to fold and unfold the leaves:
    Bulliform cell

  32. Mesophyll cells are ___________ cells packed with chloroplasts
  33. Mesophyll tissue layer that is columnar
  34. Mesophyll tissue layer that is irregular
  35. As water builds up in the guard cells, it creates ________________ which causes the guard cells to bend and open the stomatal pores
    turgor pressure
  36. Water stress causes the production of a plant hormone called:
    abscisic acid
  37. The process of when soil moisture is high and transpiration is low, water enters the roots and can be forced out the ends of veins in leaves to form droplets
  38. when plants drop their leaves and remain bare for some period
  39. formed at the base of each leaf petiole
    abscission zone
  40. buds of woody plants are protected over the winter by modified leaves in the form of:
    bud scales
  41. Large, showy flowers actually have small inconspicusous flowers surrounded by colorful modified leaves called:
  42. Autumn leaf abscission is preceded by:
    a period of senescence
  43. Leaf abscission is preceded by formation of an:
    abscission zone

  47. Dissolved materials:
  48. Move from an area of high concentration to a region of lower concetration
  49. If the concentration of solutes inside and outside a cell is the same, net water content does not change
  50. if the solute concentration is lower outside a cell than inside, the outside solution is:
  51. membrane sacs within cells that accumulate excess water and periodically expel it from the cell
    contractile vacuoles
  52. if the concentration of solutes outside cells is higher than that inside, water will eave the cell, causing the cytoplasm to shrink
