Plants: Anatomy, Growth, and Function
- F3.1 describe the structures of the various types of tissues in vascular plants, and explain the mechanisms of transport involved in the processes by which materials are distributed throughout a plant (e.g., transpiration, translocation, osmosis).
- F3.2 compare and contrast monocot and dicot plants in terms of their structures (e.g., seeds, stem, flower, root) and their evolutionary processes.
- F3.3 explain the reproductive mechanisms of plants in natural reproduction and artificial propagation (e.g., germination of seeds, leaf cuttings, grafting of branches onto a host tree).
- F3.4 describe the various factors that affect plant growth (e.g., growth regulators, sunlight, water, nutrients, acidity, tropism).
