Ch 14: ASVAB: Plant Biology

About This Chapter

Plant biology becomes easier to understand as a result of this chapter's educational videos and effective text discussions. The practice quizzes included with each lesson indicate your progress as you prepare for the ASVAB military enlistment test.

ASVAB: Plant Biology - Chapter Summary

Delve into lessons about the different parts of a flower and plant stem structure to become better acquainted with some material you may come across on the ASVAB test. You'll become familiar with how vascular, nonvascular, monocot and dicot plants are individually classified and their major differences.You may also gain knowledge of these topics as you're navigating the chapter:

  • The evolution of plants and fungi
  • Angiosperm and gymnosperm life cycles
  • Apical meristem and lateral meristem
  • Characteristics of algae
  • The structure of leaves
  • Root parts and their functions
  • Growth of the root system
  • The five groups of fungi

Each fun video across the chapter effectively breaks down the main topics in a short amount of time. The videos are animated and narrated by our expert instructors. These lessons can be easily incorporated into your busy day since they can be taken along and accessed via your wireless technology no matter where you are.

ASVAB: Plant Biology Chapter Objectives

The ASVAB's questions are used to determined whether someone's competencies are acceptable for military enlistment. You'll find that material from this chapter shows up in the General Science (GS) ASVAB subtest, which contains 25 multiple-choice items on the paper version and 16 multiple-choice questions on the computerized exam. The GS subtest examines your familiarity with biological as well as physical sciences.

The Diversity of Fungi

1. The Diversity of Fungi

Fungi are incredibly diverse! Understand the diversity of fungi, explore the five groups of fungi, and examine the differences between mold, yeast, lichen, and mycorrhiza.

Classification of Vascular, Nonvascular, Monocot & Dicot Plants

2. Classification of Vascular, Nonvascular, Monocot & Dicot Plants

Plants are a unique and essential organism. The two broad classifications of plants are vascular and nonvascular plants, however, there are several more. Explore what makes a plant monocot vs. dicot and a gymnosperm vs. an angiosperm in this lesson.

Structure of Plant Stems: Vascular and Ground Tissue

3. Structure of Plant Stems: Vascular and Ground Tissue

Learn about the structure of plant stems, such as the shoot and root structure. Learn about basic stem structures, the three types of ground tissue, the two types of vascular tissue, and how the arrangements of vascular tissue are used in botany.

Apical Meristem & Primary Shoot System Growth

4. Apical Meristem & Primary Shoot System Growth

The shoot system consists of the plant structures that are above ground. The nodes and buds of a plant provide good evidence for the quality of its growth. Explore the different types of buds and growth at the apical meristem in this lesson.

Lateral Meristem & Secondary Shoot System Growth

5. Lateral Meristem & Secondary Shoot System Growth

Only found in dicots, secondary growth increases the girth of the stem. Discover meristems, primary and secondary growth, xylem, phloem, vascular cambium, and cork cambium.

Structure of Leaves: The Epidermis, Palisade and Spongy Layers

6. Structure of Leaves: The Epidermis, Palisade and Spongy Layers

Leaves have important structures that are necessary for sustaining the life of the plant: the cuticles, upper epidermis, palisade layer, and the spongy layer. Explore the structure and function of leaves in this lesson.

Primary Root Tissue, Root Hairs and the Plant Vascular Cylinder

7. Primary Root Tissue, Root Hairs and the Plant Vascular Cylinder

Roots are used for the storage of food and the intake of water. This lesson explores types of roots, root cap, epidermis, primary root tissue, root hairs, and the plant vascular cylinder.

Root System Growth: The Root Cap, Primary Roots & Lateral Roots

8. Root System Growth: The Root Cap, Primary Roots & Lateral Roots

Root system growth in plants is important for structural support and water and nutrient absorption. Explore the different parts and functions of root systems including the root cap and primary and lateral roots.
