You will be working on these questions and vocab in class this week. On Tuesday May 19th you will have a test on this Chapter 31 content. This will be your last regular test of the year!

Vocabulary for Chapter 31

monocots * petiole * meristem * endodermis * dicots * lateral roots * root system *

parenchyma cell * primary growth * shoot system * collenchyma cell * secondary growth *

vascular bundle * xylem * sclerenchyma cell * stomata * phloem * guard cells * taproot

root cap * transpiration * fibrous root * mesophyll * root hairs * stem * node * xylem * pith

vascular cambium * cork cambium * leaves * ground meristem * axillary bud * zone of elongation

periderm * terminal bud * zone of maturation * bark * epidermis * annuals * perennials

This time, YOU are going to make your own chapter 31 packet by answer the questions below and adding pictures. When you are done you will have a fabulous study guide. If you use sources from the web, you need to include the URL. For the sake of space, you do not need to cite pictures.

1. List the characteristics of an angiosperm.

2. Explain the differences between monocots and dicots.

3. Describe the importance of root systems and shoot systems to plants and explain how they work together. Include a picture.

4. Explain how taproot systems and fibrous root systems differ.

5. How are tubers and rhizomes related?

6. Distinguish between parenchyma and collenchyma cells with regards to structure and function. Include pictures for each type of cell.

7. Explain the importance of tracheids and vessel elements to plants

8. Distinguish between water-conducting cells and sieve-tube members with regards to structure and function.

9. Describe the functions of the dermal tissue system, vascular tissue system and ground tissue system.

10. Distinguish among annual, biennial, and perennial plants. Give an example for each type of plant.

11. Explain the importance of the zones of cell division, cell elongation, and cell differentiation in primary growth of roots.

12. Explain the importance of the endodermis to a plant.

13. Describe how "wood" forms due to secondary growth of stems.

14. Using a diagram, describe the basic structure of a root, a stem, and a leaf.
