Constructed in a Distinctive Way The vegetative organs of flowering plants are roots which form a root system and stems and leaveswhich together with flowers are sexual organs form a shoot system Example below r Terminal bud f Axillary bud ai Phytomer Node The shoot system consists of stems so and leaves in l a which photosynthesis takes place The root system anchors the plant and provides water and nutrients for the Roots shoot system PRINCIPLES OF LIFE 29 Figure 241 o 2014 Sinauer Associates Inc Plant development is influenced by three unique properties of plants compared with animals

lnc 244 Domestication Has Altered Plant Form Although the plant body plan is simple it can be changed dramatically by minor genetic difference as evidenced by the natural diversity of wild plants Crop domestication involves artificial selection of certain desirable traits found in wild populations As a result of artificial selection over many generations the body forms of crop plants by very different from those of their wild relatives Chapter 25 251 Plants Acquire Mineral Nutrients from the Soil Plants are photosynthetic autotrophs that require water and certain mineral nutrients to survive The obtain most of these mineral nutrients as ions from the soil solution The essential elements for plants include six macronutrients and several micronutrients Plants that lack a particular nutrient show characteristic deficiency symptoms The essential elements were discovered by growing plants hydroponically in solutions that lacked individual elements Soils supply plants with mechanical support water and dissolved ions air and the services of other organisms Protons take the place of mineral nutrient cations bound to clay particles in soil in a process called ion exchange

Associates Inc Water and ions may pass from the soil into the root by way of the apoplast or the symplast but they must pass through the symplast to cross the endodermis and enter the xylem The casparian strip in the endodermis blocks further movement of water and ions through the apoplast Root z The Casparian strip prevents water and ions in the apoplast from passing between the endodermal

PRINCIPLES OF LIFE Figure 251 1 2012 Sinauer Associates Inc Water is transported in the xylem by the transpirationcohesiontension mechanism Evaporation from the leaf produces tension in the mesophyll which pulls a column of waterheld together by cohesion up through the xylem from the root 3 Tension pulls water from the veins into the apoplast surrounding the mesophyll cells 4 whioh in turn pulls water in the veins of the leaves upward and outward 5 whioh in turn pulls the water column in the xylem of the shoot and root upward water molecules forms a continuous water column from the roots to the leaves 7 Water enters the root and moves into the xylem by osmosis PRINCIPLES OF LIFE Figure 2512 2012 Sinauer Associates Inc Stomata allow a balance between water retention and C02 uptake Their opening and closing is regulated by guard cells In the light guard cells actively pump protons out thus facilitating the entry of K and Cl Higher internal K and Cl concentrations give guard cells a more negative water potential causing them to take up water The resulting increase in turgor pressure stretches the cells and opens the stoma I l Stoma 10 pm Cellulose microfibrils In the absence of light Kquot and Cl diffuse passively out of the guard cells and water follows by osmosis The guard cells shrink and the stoma closes PRINCIPLES OF LIFE Figure 251 3 2012 Sinauer Associates Inc 254

Inc Translocation is the movement of the products of photosynthesis as well as some other small molecules through sieve tubes in the phloem The solutes move from sources to sinks Translocation is explained by the pressure flow model the difference in solute potential between sources and sinks creates a difference in pressure potential that pushes phloem sap along the sieve tubes Lecture Notes
