Biology of Plants Exam II Review Guide Your exam will consist of 25 short answer and multiple choice questions based on all readings and lectures from Seedless Vascular Plants Chapter 17 through Angiosperms Chapter 19 Below is an outline of topics and terms with which you should be familiar as well as 10 sample questions This guide highlights important topics which will likely be on the exam it is not a comprehensive list of all potential topics Topics Know the life cycles of all taxa that we covered in class and be able to identify the ploidies of all relevant anatomical structures Also pay special attention to summary tables provided on the powerpoints 1 Seedless Vascular Plants A Features that separate vascular from nonvascular plants vascular plants only sporophyte dominant true xylem and phloem lignin apical meristems at stem tips of sporophyte true roots and leaves B Heterospory vs homospory 1 Heterosporous makes two types of spores 2 types of gametophytes unisexual a Spores produce unisexual gametophytes i Microspores male gametophytes ii Megaspores female b Arose independently several times in seedless vascular plants and seed plants 2 Homospory a Only one type of spore b Spore produces bisexual dametOthtes c The gametophytes have both archegonia and antheridia d This is the ancestral state heterospory evolved later several times C Xylem and phloem found in the stele of roots and stems 1 Xylem a Trachearv elements the general term for ligni ed xylem cells in vascular plants includes tracheids and in angiosperms vessel elements b Tracheid elongated xylem cell with closed tapering ends present in seedless vascular plants transport and rigidity 2 Phloem a Sieve elements the general term for phloem cells in vascular plants includes sieve cells and sieve tube elements angiosperms only b Sieve cells elongated slender phloem cell with tapering end c Have a cytoplasm mostly sugar that s moving through the pipes from the leaves down the roots often have parenchyma and albuminous cells whereas xylem conducts water D Different types of stele architecture and the plant taxa in which they are found 1 Stele central cylinder of the root or stem where xylem and phloem are located may also contain pith a Protostele solid cylinder of vascular tissue xylem and phloem of primitive vascular plants is present in the form of a protostele in the center of the stem b Siphonostele a ring of xylem and phloem contains central pith leaf gap and parenchyma cells i Leaf gap in ferns a region of parenchyma tissue above the point of departure of a leaf trace ii Parenchyma cell thin walled plant cell of variable size and form quotgeneral cellquot E microphylls vs megaphylls 1 Microphylls a small leaf with one vein and one leaf trace found in lycophytes not associated with a leaf gap a Probably evolved as super cial stem outgrowths enations that later became vascularized b Protostele microphyll 2 Megaphyll larger leaf with several to many veins found in

have seed secondary xylem heterosporous megaphylls a Seed plants are heterosporous they make megaspores that give rise to megagametophytes make microspores that give rise to microgametophytes Seed makes it unique an extreme form of heterospory in which the embryo develops inside the ovule B Events in ovule evolution 1 The Ovule develops into a seed ovule is part of the sporophyte and contains a megasporangium 2 When immature it has two parts a b Megasporangium in which megaspores are produced in seed plants the megasporangium is called the nucellus Additional layers of tissue is called the integument 3 Events in Ovule Evolution a Retention of megaspores in megasporangium Reduction of megaspore mother cells to 1 Survival of only 1 megaspore out of 4 Formation of megagametophyte entirely within the megasporangiumnucellus Development of embryo within female gametophyte within megasporangium like quotRussion dollsquot An integument surrounds the megasporangium except for micro le Megasporangium apex modi ed to receive pollen micropye opening where the sperm enters C Anatomy of male and female cones male and female gametophytes 1 Young female pine cones quotfemale strobiliquot contains multiple ovules a Their strobili is directly homologous whereas seedless vascular plants strobili is contained in the sporangia ony b Gymnosperm strobili contain true ovules in which the sporangia are enclosed in the integuments these ovules will eventually develop into pine seeds c Each cone scale ovuliferous scale has two ovules on the underside d Beneath each cone scale is a sterile bract together the cone scale and the bract make up the seedscale complex e The mature megagametophyte has a few thousand cells in contrast to the microgametophyte which has 3 cellsnuclei at maturity f Contains 2 or 3 archegonia at the microper end each with an 999 g 2 Male Cone Anatomy a Each scale is a microsporophyll b Each scale contains 2 microsporangia c The microsporangia contain multiple microsporocytes microgametophytes pollen grains d The microsporocytes undergo meiosis in early spring producing four haploid microspores e Each microspore develops into a 4celled winged pollen grain the immature microgametophyte 9 contains 2 prothallial cells 1 generative cell and 1 tube cell no antheridia i 2 prothallial cells ii 1 tube cell tube nucleus iii 1 generativve cell steriecell and spermatogenous cell two sperm cells iv all of this happens over the course of a year f At fertilization the mature microgametophyte releases two sperm into the egg cytoplasm they unite with the egg to form a zygote E Pine life cycle in detail see lab handout F Primary stem anatomy secondary stem anatomy and the vascular cambium 1 Primary stem anatomy Epidermiel Phloem of the Vascular bundle Cortex a 2 Secondary stem anatomy Epidermie I Phleern 39 quot mc39e ex X3 lerri Pith Pmean1hiurn g 7 39 lnterfaecieular I parenchyma a Vascular a bundle b Secondary growth begins with the initiation of vascular cambium a cylinder of meristematic tissue that produces additional xylem and phloem tissues 3 Vascular Cambium cylindrical sheath of meristematic cells that produces secondary xylem wood to the inside and secondary phloem to the outside Epidermis 7 Phloem 7 interfascicular pa rem hyma a b The vascular cambium forms when the cells of interfascicular parenchyma dedifferentiate and divide periclinally in a plane parallel to the surface of the stem G General features of cycads Ginkgo Gnetum Ephedra and WeWitschia 1 Cycads characterized by a stout and woody Iigneous runk with a crown of large stiff evergreen leaves sometimes confused with palms a Dioecious individual plants are either male or female b Cycad seeds may be large with brightly colored outer coat and hard inside layer 2 Ginkgo only one remaining species Ginkgo bioba a Living fossil the part that looks like a fruit isn t a fruit called a sarcotesta b Male ginkgo small pollen cones with sporophylls each sporophyll has 2 microsporangia wind pollinated haustorial pollen tube motile sperm i Haustoria structure that penetrates and absorbs nutrients from a host tissue often used in reference to parasitic plants c Female ginko don t produce cones two ovules are formed at the end of a stalk and after pollination one or both develop into seeds i Seeds surrounded by reshy material containing butyric acid called sarcotesta and beneath this is a hard sclerotesta the shell of the seed 3 Gnetophyta 3 genera nonmotile sperm like conifers most are dioecious like cycads Representative

Describe the anatomy and development of owers ovaries and fruit B Floral terms perfect complete inferior etc 1 Perfect contains both androecium and gynoecium Imperfect ower contains only one or the other unisexual male or female Complete contains 4 oral whorls sepals petals stamens and carpels a Sepals cover and protect the ower parts when the ower is a bud b Petals play an important role in attracting animal pollinators c Stamens male reproductive unit consists of a lament attached to an anther an anther where pollen grains are produced d Carpel female reproductive unit consists of a stigma style ovary Incomplete missing one or more whorls Connate fusion of similar parts 9 example all petals fused into a single tube Adnate fusion of dissimilar parts example carpel and stamens fusing into a single structure If the ovary is above the receptacle where sepals and petals attach it s said to be superior if its below the receptacle its inferior B Angiosperm life cycle in detail
