Alternation of Generations: The Gametophyte and Sporophyte

1. 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.

A Moss Life Cycle: Dominant Gametophyte

2. A Moss Life Cycle: Dominant Gametophyte

Mosses are unique because they spend most of their lives with only one set of genetic material rather than the normal two sets. We will look at this cycle and how the alternation of generations takes place in these non-vascular plants.

A Fern Life Cycle: Plant Reproduction Without Flowers or Seeds

3. A Fern Life Cycle: Plant Reproduction Without Flowers or Seeds

Ferns are able to reproduce without using seeds. We will look at how ferns reproduce as well as the pattern of alternating between diploid and haploid life stages.

A Gymnosperm Life Cycle: Reproduction of Plants with 'Naked Seeds'

4. A Gymnosperm Life Cycle: Reproduction of Plants with 'Naked Seeds'

Some plants, such as pine trees, are able to reproduce with unprotected seeds. We will look at the major structures involved in this form of alternation of generations in gymnosperms.

An Angiosperm Life Cycle: Flowering Plant Reproduction

5. 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.

Tropisms: Phototropic, Geotropic and Thigmotropic Plant Growth

6. Tropisms: Phototropic, Geotropic and Thigmotropic Plant Growth

Animals aren't the only things that can respond to the environment. While plants may seem inanimate at times, they, too, can respond to the environment in order to better survive.

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

7. 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.

Seasonal Growth Cycles: Perennial, Annual and Biennial Plants

8. Seasonal Growth Cycles: Perennial, Annual and Biennial Plants

We continue to grow and change throughout our entire lives, living through many seasons and years. Plants have different patterns of growth and development regarding seasons, which we will look at in this lesson.

Plant Hormones: Chemical Control of Growth and Reproduction

9. Plant Hormones: Chemical Control of Growth and Reproduction

We most often think of hormones as things that control our actions and development. However, even plants have these chemicals to help regulate growth and reproduction.

Ovary of a Flower: Function & Definition

10. Ovary of a Flower: Function & Definition

Human females have ovaries that are necessary for reproduction, but did you know that flowers also have ovaries? You can learn about the function of flower ovaries in this lesson.

Stigma in a Flower: Function & Parts

11. Stigma in a Flower: Function & Parts

There are many parts of a flower involved in their reproduction. One of those parts is the stigma. In this lesson we will take a closer look at the structure and function of the stigma to gain a better understanding of this pivotal part.

Monocot: Definition, Function & Examples

12. Monocot: Definition, Function & Examples

Monocots are one of the two major types of flowering plants. Find out why these plants are important, and see some common examples, including plants you can find in your own backyard.

Crassulacean Acid Metabolism: Definition & Plants

13. Crassulacean Acid Metabolism: Definition & Plants

Have you ever wondered how desert plants can keep from losing water? The answer lies in the process known as Crassulacean acid metabolism, which we will discuss in this lesson.
