Plant Biology Review Quiz
This is a review quiz on general vocabulary terms for the unit on plants we are covering in science. This quiz does not include terms associated with the anatomy of stems and roots, gymnosperms, or angiosperms.
The outer coating of a seed that protects the embryo inside.
Part of a plant that contains all of the structures necessary for photosynthesis to occur.
A type of organism that makes its own food.
Vascular tissue that moves materials from leaves to the roots in a plant.
The early growth stage of an embryo (seed).
Part of a leaf that contains stomata and guard cells.
The process by which a plant uses the energy of the sun to convert carbon dioxide and water to simple sugars (food).
Small, root-like structures present on some non-vascular plants that aid in the absorption of water and nutrients from the surrounding environment.
These types of plants have two characteristics: vascular tissue and the use of seeds to reproduce.
Organisms that contain cells with nuclei and other structures.
A type of seed with one cotyledon.
Structures produced by some sexually reproducing plants that contain embryos and stored food and are protected by a tough, outer covering.
Reproduction that results from an egg being fertilized with sperm.
Part of a plant responsible for support and positioning leaves for best exposure to the sun.
In a seed this is a young developing plant.
Top layer of a leaf that serves as a tough, protective barrier that helps prevent water loss.
Vascular tissue responsible for moving materials from the roots to the leaves in a plant.
Plants that reproduce using sporophytes.
A type of plant containing transporting tissue.
The layer inside of a leaf that gets the best exposure to the sun and where most photosynthesis takes place.
A type of reproduction where no new genetic material is passed from parent to offspring: often characterized by the growth of new plant tissue from existing tissue.
A package of genetic material that is released into the environment by a parent plant.
A layer inside the leaf of a plant were gas exchange takes place and where some photosynthesis occurs.
