How eudicots (true dicots) differ from monocots Animation

By: HWC, Views: 44

Most flowering plants are either monocots or eudicots. They have the same tissues, but slightly different features. Monocot seeds have a single cotyledon, or seed leaf. Eudicot seeds have two cotyledons. Monocot flowers usually have petals and other floral parts in multiples of three. Flow...

Mendel's Pea Experiment

By: HWC, Views: 4922

Sugar snap peas were common garden plants during Mendel's lifetime and many varieties undoubtedly grew in the abbey gardens. An avid gardener. this is where Mendel first made observations about pea plants. He noticed that certain characteristics of peas were passed from generation to generation. ...

Mendel's Principles of Dominance, Segregation and Independent Assortment

By: HWC, Views: 5071

Mendel selected true-breeding parents with contrasting traits, for example, purple and white flower color, and performed reciprocal crosses by choosing pollen from one parent and hand pollinating the seed-forming parent with this pollen. A cross-fertilization resulted from this procedure. In t...

Mendel's pea plant, Pisum sativum experimental

By: HWC, Views: 3466

Mendel chose the garden pea plant, Pisum sativum, for experimental tests of his ideas about inheritance. Under normal circumstances, the garden pea plant is self-fertilizing. This cross-section shows the gamete-forming structures. Sperm-producing pollen grains form in the stamens. Eggs deve...

The Pressure Flow Model in a Plant

By: HWC, Views: 4923

The vascular system of plants has two transport tissues, called xylem and phloem. Xylem transports water and minerals, while phloem transports a variety of dissolved substances, including sugars and amino acids, throughout the plant. Water in the xylem always moves up, in the direction from th...

Chloroplast Structure & Light Dependent Reactions (Photosystem 1 and 2 Cyclic Electron Flow)

By: HWC, Views: 5140

The leaf is the principle photosynthetic organ of the plant. This is a cross section of a leaf. The rectangular-shaped cells are part of the photosynthetic tissue called the palisade mesophyll. Each photosynthetic cell can contain several hundred organelles known as chloroplasts. The chlorop...

Calvin cycle (The light-independent reactions )

By: HWC, Views: 5256

The light-independent reactions of photosynthesis occur in the stroma of the chloroplast. Carbon dioxide enters the leaf through tiny pores or stomata and diffuses into the chloroplast. The first stage of the Calvin cycle is the attachment of a carbon dioxide molecule to a 5-carbon ribulose bi...
