INTRO BIO LAB EXERCISE 3 -plants are multicellular, photosynthetic in Kingdom Plantae -more than 280,000 species -evolved from green algae -chlorophyll a as primary pigment -store carbs as starch in chloroplasts -cellulose cell walls -exhibit sporic meiosis with alternation of generations -multicellular diploid phase known as sporophyte -meiosis -haploid spores with mitosis -multicellular haploid phase known as gametophytes -evolved 475 million years ago -terrestrial advantages: -no competition -light more abundant -CO2 easily diffused -mineral elements abundant -terrestrial problems: -aquisition and maintenance of water -minimized with cuticle waxy coat preventing evaporation but impeded movement of gas -stomata and pores evolved allowing gas exchange extant- living plants Briophytes -gametophyte phase is dominant dominant-larger, more obvious and longer, lived generation -sporophyte generation attached to and dependent on gametophyte -do not contain well developed vascular tissue -therefore small in size -erect stems with leaf-like structures -root like rhizoids help anchor the plant and help with absorption gametangia-gamete producing structures -at the top of the plants antheridia-sperm producing gametangia -sperm swims to egg with help of rainwater archegonium- egg producing gametangium -mature sporophyte contains: foot- area of attachment to parent gametophyte seta- stalk capsule- meiosis occurs here and spores are produced spores- primary means of dispersal of briophytes and germinate into filamentous protonema (like filamentous green algae) Phylum Hepatophyta- liverworts Phylum Anthocerophyta- hornworts Phylum Bryophyta- mosses Seedless Vascular Plants -vascular system allows materials to move in greater quantity and faster and farther -plants larger -all plants other than bryophyte have well-developed vascular system -diploid sporophyte dominant in all plants except bryophytes -“the ferns and their allies” Phylym Lycophyta (Club Mosses) -true leaves, true roots, primitive vasculature -Lycopodium Phylum Pterophyta (Ferns) -consists of pteridophytes psilophytes/whisk ferns- similar to 420 million year old vascular planes xylem- conduction of water and minerals phloem- conduction of organic molecules -no true leaves or roots -photosynthesis via chlorophyll in stem mycorrhizal associations- mutualistic relationship bw plant and a fungus -keeps pterophytes anchored and helps with absorption -Psilotum -equal branching is primitive trait sporangia- pumpkin shaped structures at tips horsetails/scouring rushes -single living genus: Equisetum -true leaves and roots strobilus (scale-like structured leaves) with sporangia -ferns range in size rhizomes- stems often become horizontal and extend underground fronds- leaves sori- on the underside of fronds, consist of any sporangia -if spore lands in suitable area, germinates into heart shaped prothallus (haploid gametophyte generation) rhizoids- underside of prothallus and aid in anchorage and absorption of materials gametangia- on underside archegonia- near indentation of the heart antheridia- near rhizoids Seed Plants -developed 360 milliion years ago ovule- sporangium that produces female spore surrounded by protective layers called integuments, develops into seed when mature as embryonic sporophyte with coat and food -251,000 seed plant species -does not require free water for sexual reproduction to take place pollen tube- develops from male gametophyte and sperm delivered to proximity of egg via this -nurtures embryonic sporophyte and allowed exploitation of habitats -most seedless plants are homosporous (similar spore) -seed plants are heterosporous and have two types -microspore produced by microsporangium -grows into microgametophyte (male gametophyte) -megaspore produced by megaspore mother cell in megasporangium which is covered by two protective layers called integuments and will germinate into megagametophyte (female gametophyte) ovule- megasporangium and integuments together 2 groups: gymnosperms (seed borne naked) and angiosperms (seed borne with fruit) Gymnosperms -gametophytes of seed plants reduced and dependent on sporophyte generation (gametophyte of fern is independent) -microsporangia and megasporangia are borne on different cones -male cones small and last one year -female cones large and last longer -cannot differentiate after one year -In male cones, each “leaf” aka microsporophyll bears two microsporangia containing hundreds of pollen grains -in female cones, there are multiple scales aka seed-scale complexes with two ovules each and during pollination, pollen from male cones moves to female gametophyte producing pollen tube -free water not necessary for reproduction and embryonic plant provided with food and coat Phylum Cycadophyta -“cycads” -superficially resemble short palm trees Phylum Gingkophyta -ginkgo biloba, maidenhair tree -tolerant of pollution, in a lot of cities Phylum Gnetophyta -3 genera -Ephedra, Welwitszchia, Gnetum -closest to angiosperms Phylum Coniferophyta -most diverse and abundant -needle like leaves Angiosperms (Flowering plants) Phylum Anthophyta -250,000 species -2 new structures: flower and fruit -2 classes: monocots and eudicots -Monocots- flower parts in multiples of 3, veins parallel, vascular bundles scattered, seed has one embryonic leaf (cotyledon) -Eudicots- flower parts in multiples of 4 or 5, net-like veins vascular bundles in ring, 2 cotyledons in embryos Flowers -gymnosperms need a lot pollen bc depend on wind -made pollination more effective and coerce animals as vectors and pollinators -basic structure has 4 whorls -whorls attached to receptacle- top of the stem 1) sepals- lower most part together called calyx 2) petals- bright, together called corolla 3) stamens- pollen producing made up of anther and filament 4) pistils- contains stigma, style, ovary (ovules in ovary) -most primitive flower like Magnolia -primitive flower was actinomorphic- radially symmetric -ovaries were superior- all other parts below aka hypogyny -via evolution more modification include zygomorphic- bilaterally symmetric flowers and inferior ovaries (epigyny) Fruits -ovule in ovary -following pollination and fertilization, embryo forms in ovule and ovary wall becomes pericarp (fruit wall) consisting of three parts exocarp, mesocarp, and endocarp -fruit provides additional protection LAB EXECISE 4 -3 main plant organs 1) leaves 2) stem 3) root simple tissues- one type of cell complex tissues- two or more types of cells -3 main tissue systems 1) dermal 2) vascular 3) ground (fundamental) dermal tissue system: -tissue covering body, epidermis and sometimes secondary woody growth aka periderm -epidermis – epidermal cells, guard cells around stomata -periderm- complex tissue made of cork vascular tissue system: -conducting tissues of plant -xylem and phloem xylem: -complex, conduct water and mineral nutrients

tissues that are still growing -alive at maturity -uneven thick cell walls sclerenchyma: -sclerenchyma cells -support -dead at maturity -lignified thick cell wall Roots: -function to absorb water and nutrients, transport materials to above ground plant, and anchoring plants in soil, serve as storage organs 4 Allium Onion Root Tip Root cap-protective layer Region of cell division- above root cap -in processs of dividing -with thin layers of non dividing cells makes up apical meristem (growing tip) region of cell elongation- increase in length of root, pushing through soil region of maturation- characterized by root hairs to increase surface area for nutrient uptake -fully differentiated Monocot and Dicot Roots Monocot: -outermost epidermis absorbs nutrients and protects inner layers (root hairs are outgrowths of epidermis) -next layer is called cortex -parenchyma cells, stores starch -next compact layer is endodermis -bound by fatty layer called casparian strip -surrounds cell only around walls perpendicular to root surface -barrier to water between cortex and inner tissue -any substance leaving vascular tissue must ender protoplasts of endodermal cells rather than simple diffusing bw them as in the cortex -serves as outer boundary of vascular cylinder in root -next layer is pericycle -gives rise to later roots -beneath pericycle is xylem (conducts water) and phloem (conducts food up and down) -innermost layer is pith made of parenchyma cells for storage Dicots: -no pith, more extensive cortex -vascular tissue is more central and arranged with cross pattern and three or more radiating arms -cell walls of endodermal cells opposite arms are thinner than bw arms, effectively funneling water diffusing into root to xylem Stems: Herbaceous Monocot and Dicot Stems Monocot: -vacular bundles scattered -outermost layer epidermis -next layer is fibrous with thick angular cell walls that are sclerenchyma for support -in bundles: 2 xylem (eyes) , phloem (forehead), and airspace where early xylem was (mouth) -remaining tissue is parenchyma Dicot: -vascular bundles in rind near periphery -xylem and phloem separated by actively dividing cell layer called vascular cambium -cambium makes new xylem and phloem later -bundles capped by sclerenchyma -well defined cortex and pith made of parenchyma -epidermis with irregular cell walls made of collenchyma Woody Stem -Tilia wood with secondary/woody growth -parenchyma bw vascular bundles differentiates to form additional cambium (interfascicular cambium) -forms entire ring of cambium connecting each cambium of each bundle -vacular cambium produces large amounts of secondary xylem and phloem -cork cambium contributes to secondary growth, arises from cortex and produces more cork -dead at maturity Leaves: Typical monocot and dicot leaves -between upper and lower epidermis is mesophyll which is photosynthetic tissue of leaf made of parenchyma Monocots: -parallel venation -vascular bundles evenly spaces and uniform size (except midvein) -vascular bundles, stomata opening, and bulliform cells (on edge, leaf folding and unfolding in grasses) Dicots: -net venation -vascular tissue not regularly arranged -mesophyll differentiated in 2 layers: -palisade parenchyma- columnar -spongy parenchyma- loosely arranged -stomata at lower surface epidermis -like monocots, both upper and lower epidermis have waxy cuticle coat to reduce water loss LAB EXERCISE 2 -fungi are diverse Important as: -decomposers (break down complex organic material to release simpler

sporangia used for mold dispersal -hyphae penetrates agar and has root like rhizoids for anchoring and absorption -for sexual reproduction in black bread mold, two strains (+ and -) unify (zygospores in center are result of this) -Rhizopus Ascomycota (sac fungi) -terrestrial and aquatic fungi -hyphae with perforated septae -sexual reproduction involves saclike, spore producing ascus -mildews, truffles, morels, cup fungi, yeasts -YEASTS: -budding is asexual reproduction from constriction/pinching off cytoplasm -OTHERS: -cup fungus -typifies sexual reproductive structure Basidiomycota (club fungi) -terrestrial fungi -complete cross walls and sexual reproduction involves formation of basidiospores on basidium -structures obvious as in mushrooms, puff balls, bracket fungi, rusts, smuts
