Card Set Information
Species that do NOT require fertilization to produce fruit
ex. fig, apple, peach, cherry, birch
Glucose + Oxygen > Energy + Carbon Dioxide + Water
The reverse of photosynthesis where the plant is using stored energy
*photosynthesis must exceed respiration
Flowers are pollen and seed cones
Does NOT have male and female reproductive parts in the same flower.
Male and female flowers are found on the same plant
Male and female flowers are on different plants
Pigment found in plants that aid in photosynthesis.
Reflects the green spectrum of light.
The orientation and direction a plant grows in response to external stimuli
Controlled by the hormone, Auxin. The main central stem is dominant over the side stems.
Carbon Dioxide + Water in the presence of light > Oxygen + Photosynthate (sugars, carbohydrate)
*must exceed respiration
A flower with petals and sepals. Lower ring of sepals called the calyx are usually green.
Ex. Apples, cherries, nectarine
Contains both male (pollen bearing stamens) and femal (pistil) reproductive parts
A developed ovary.
Fleshy portion is a fertilized ovary
Seeds are ovules
Strong apical dominance.
Central leader has growth priority.
A plants drive to grow toward a light source
Apical buds are slowed and lateral buds keep pace
Organelles found in plant cells that conduct photosynthesis by capturing light energy to convert to photosynthate.
A plants drive to grow in an upward direction.
The loss of water in the form of vapor from the leaves and lenticels.
When transpiration exceeds absorption, cells lose turgor and wilt.
A hormore that controls growth in plants. Found in root and shoot tips and drives them to elongate.
