Vocabulary carotenoids organic pigments found in chloroplasts redorangeyellow xanthophylls yellow pigments of leaves that don t need light to be synthesized referred to as oxygenated carotenoids fucoxanthin xanthophyll which is an accessory pigment in the chloroplasts of brown algae phycobilins light capturing bile pigments found in cyanobacteria such as red algae phycoerythrin red protein pigment present in red algae Made up of phycobilins thylakoids compartment inside chloroplasts and cyanobacteria where light comes in and light dependent reactions take place for photosynthesis starch carbohydrate consisting of glucose molecules strung together tinsel flagellum hairlike projections which occur in various organisms that increase the power generated by the flagella alginic acid carbohydrate found in brown algae in the form of salts in the cell walls carrageenan polysaccharides extracted from red seaweeds dichotomous branching simple branching pattern that occurs in plants where one stem develops into two branches each one of these two branches develops two branches themselves for a total of four branches This process is repeated vascular tissue complex tissue consisting of more than one type of cell which transport fluids and nutrients inside the cell Phloem and Xylem gametic meiosis process of meiosis which occurs at the time of gamete formation Produces gametophyte zygotic meiosis meiosis that takes place at the time of the zygote germination The process of a plant growing out of a seed sporic meiosis meiosis occurs when there s a formation of spores most commonly sporophytes alternation of generations the fluctuation between the diploid and the haploid stages that occur in plants Fluctuation between the gametophytes and the sporophytes desiccation a state of extreme dryness or drying mutagenesis process by which genetic information of an organism is changed resulting in a mutation littoral zone part of the ocean closest to the shore multicellularity having or consisting of many cells double fertilization process of fertilization for angiosperms One female gametophyte is joined with two male gametes sperm Pollen grain attaches to the stigma and then the pollen grain takes in moisture and begins to germinate forming a tube which extends to the ovary where the pollen tube enters the ovary and penetrates the opening to the ovule The pollen tube inserts two sperm into the megagametophyte autotrophic also known as producer Type of organism that produces organic compounds such as carbohydrates fats and proteins heterokont a lineage in the eukaryotes which contains different species of algae kelp and diatoms They have a motile life cycle in which the flagellate cells possess two different shaped flagella heterothallic two different and separate gametophytes Male gametophyte and female gametophyte heterosporic two different types of spores which differ in sex and size Produce different sporangia megasporangia and microsporangia heterotroph an organism that cannot fix carbon and uses organic carbon for growth They re dependent on complex organic compounds and cannot synthesize their own food homothallic containing only one type of gametophyte Bisexual Both the female and male parts of the gametophyte exist in one structure homosporous produce only one structure sporangia therefore only produce one type of spores gamete when a cell fuses with another during fertilization to form an organism gametangia found in protists algae and fungi it s an organ or cell in which gametes are produced This is a haploid structure and does not need meiosis gametophyte haploid multicellular stage of alternation of generations in plants which develops from a spore spore unit of asexual reproduction thats adapted for survival Produced by the sporangium of a diploid sporophyte sporangia enclosed structure in which spores are formed sporophyte diploid multicellular stage in life of a plant Formed from the zygote sporophylls a leaf that produces sporangia antheridia haploid structure containing male gametes archegonia multicellular structure that contains a single egg oogamy form of sexual reproduction which female gamete is larger than the male gamete and is nonmotile the male gamete is highly motile and competitive over the egg oogonia the first immature egg or ovum phycoplast microtubule observed during cytokinesis phragmoplast structure that forms during late cytokinesis which allows cell plate assembly and formation of new cell wall to separate the two daughter cells fertilization fusion of gametes to form a new individual glycolate oxidase involved in nonhost resistance by regulating defense responses through the production of H202 zygote fertilized egg that results from the union of female and male gametes embryo unborn offspring in the process of development cuticle protective film covering the epidermis of leaves consisting of lipid and hydrocarbon polymers to make a waxy substance stomata structures found on the outer leafy skin which are responsible for gas exchange sorus cluster of sporangia in ferns and fungi mega vs micro micro is small Mega is large ovule structure that contains female reproductive cells Consists of the integument forming the outer layer the nucleus as the megasporangium and the female gametophyte as the megaspore in the middle ovary female reproductive organ in which ova or eggs are produced integument natural covering of an organism or organ to protect monoecious having both male and female gametes in same structure dioecious having male and female gametes in separate structures deciduous a type of plant or tree which sheds its leaves annually evergreen type of plant or tree which doesn t shed its leaves stamen pollen producing organ in the flower anther the part of the stamen where pollen is directly produced stigma female reproductive part of the flower stylelong slender stalk that connects the top of the stigma to the ovary pollen contain microgametophytes of seed plants which produce male gametes pollination process by which pollen is transferred from the anther to the stigma which results in fertilization and is a form of reproduction syngamy the fusion of two cells in reproduction plasmogamy fungi reproduction cycle stage in which the cytoplasm of the parent cells fuse together without their nuclei which results in two haploid nuclei together in the same cell karyogamy final stage in the process of fusing together two cells by fusing the two nuclei sepal protection part of the flowers of angiosperms which protects the bud and supports petals calyx tube that surrounds the petals after they ve bloomed which supports the sepals petal modified leaves that surround the reproductive parts of the flower corolla term for all the petals of a flower endosperm tissue produced inside of a seed which surrounds the embryo and provides nutrition from starch oils and proteins seed coat protects the embryo from mechanical injury predators and drying out Made from the integuments which previously surrounded the ovule protandry male parts mature first protogyny female parts mature first scarification the cutting of the seed coat using abrasion heat and chemicals These processes encourage germination stratification process by which seeds are artificially exposed to cold and moist conditions to encourage germination in spring indehiscent structures that don t open to disperse seeds dehiscent the splitting of a plant structure in order to release contents such as sporangia gemma single cell or mass of cells which detaches from parent and develops into a separate independent individual carpel part of the flower that produces ovules and develops into fruits outbreeding breeding from parents that aren t closely related spindle fibers produce a protein structure that divides the genetic material of the cell Attaches to the end of chromosomes and separate them into separate sides to aid the production of two daughter cells hyphae long branching structures in fungus that forms underground mycelium group of hyphae mycorrhizal symbiotic relationship between fungus and plants Fungus facilitates the delivery of water and nutrients to the plant while the plant allows the fungus to survive off of the sugars produced by the plant during photosynthesis plasmodium microorganisms which are parasites and affect a host extracellular digestion process by which organisms feed by secreting enzymes through cell membrane to the food and starting digestion that way until there are small enough molecules to be taken up by diffusion or phagocytosis endophyte endosymbiont fungus or bacteria which lives in a long term physical relationship with a plant and does not cause disease Fungi Chytrids aqua c contain flagella unicellular feed on pollen and other plant parts some parasitize protists plants and animals Zygomycetes form a thick wall structure called
