Asexual Plant Reproduction: Vegetative Propagation and Bulbs

1. Asexual Plant Reproduction: Vegetative Propagation and Bulbs

Not all plants make attractive flowers in order to reproduce. Some plants will not make seeds and pollen either. These plants have other ways to create new offspring. We will look at a few key methods of vegetative propagation.

Alternation of Generations: The Gametophyte and Sporophyte

2. Alternation of Generations: The Gametophyte and Sporophyte

Even though many plants seem simple, they often have very complex life cycles. We will look at how plants alternate between different life stages as well as the terms used to describe these unique points in their life cycle.

Photoperiodicity: Short-day, Long-day and Day-Neutral Plants

3. Photoperiodicity: Short-day, Long-day and Day-Neutral Plants

Ever wonder why some plants will bloom in the spring but others in the summer? The length of daylight can influence when a flower will bloom. We will look at how the amount of sunlight regulates when plants produce flowers.

Flowers: Structure and Function of Male & Female Components

4. Flowers: Structure and Function of Male & Female Components

In this lesson, we'll look at the parts of a flower and learn their functions. These natural beauties provide indispensable services to the plants they adorn.

Methods of Pollination and Flower-Pollinator Relationships

5. Methods of Pollination and Flower-Pollinator Relationships

Ever wonder why bees are attracted to specific flowers? We will look at why certain animals are drawn to certain plants and other methods of pollination in this lesson.

An Angiosperm Life Cycle: Flowering Plant Reproduction

6. An Angiosperm Life Cycle: Flowering Plant Reproduction

When you think of how plants reproduce, you probably think of flowers. We will look at how flowering plants use specialized reproductive structures to complete an alternation of generations life cycle.
