If Maddy isn't already a tutor, they should be. Haven't had any of this stuff explained to me as clearly as this was. I appreciate the help!

What are at least five major reasons why all life should care about plants? 3. What percent of prescription medications in the US contain at least one active ingredient derived from a plant? In contrast, what percent of the world’s population relies exclusively on herbal medicines to treat their ailments? 4. What is transpiration (evapotranspiration) and why is it important? 5. What are the 3 main plant organs? 6. What is respiration? Do plants perform respiration? 7. Can you name 2 classes of photosynthetic plant pigments? 8. What happens during the light reactions and the Calvin Cycle of photosynthesis? 9. What does most plant growth result from: cell elongation or cell division? 10. What is the difference between primary and secondary growth? 11. What are the three tissue systems? 12. What are the two vascular tissues? What is the role of each of them? 13. What are the three ground tissues? What is the role of each of them? 14. What group of algae is considered to be the ancestors of land plants? 15.

What is the major difference between algae and plants? 20. How do we make distinctions between the following groups of plants: mosses, ferns, gymnosperms and flowering plants? 21. What is the dominant generation of a bryophyte? Is this typical with all other plants? 22. What are the 2 of the 3 phyla (divisions/groups) we discussed when we learned the bryophytes (common names are acceptable)? 23. How are bryophytes dependent on water (what part of their life cycle requires water)? 24. As we move up the evolutionary ladder within plants, which becomes more dominant: the gametophyte or sporophyte generation? 25. What are the four phyla that comprise the fern and fern allies (common names are acceptable)? 26. In the ferns, which is the more dominant generation: the gametophyte or sporophyte? 27. Of the “ferns and fern allies” groups: Which is the most diverse (highest # of species)? Which happens to be the most ancient surviving genus of plants on Earth? 28. What is the unit of dispersal of the ferns: spores or seeds? Is water required to dislodge the sperm for sexual reproduction?
