About This Chapter
Overview of Plant Biology - Chapter Summary
In this chapter, our expert instructors provide an overview of plant biology. As you watch these video lessons, you'll review subjects such as plant classifications, reproduction and flowering plants. Once you complete this chapter, you should be ready to:
- Identify the different parts of a plant
- Outline the classification of nonvascular, vascular, monocot and dicot plants
- Discuss the reproduction and fertilization of flowering plants
- Explain vegetative propagation and bulbs as they relate to asexual plant reproduction
When you work through these lessons, you can work at your own pace and go back to review any of the topics as many times as needed. It's easy to skip to one part of a video lesson by using the video tabs feature found in the Timeline. Help from a professional instructor is available through the Dashboard if you need it.
1. What are the Parts of a Plant?
Ever look at a plant and wonder what each specific part is? A plant has two basic plant parts: the shoot and root systems. In this lesson, you'll learn and be able to identify each individual plant part within the shoot and root systems.
2. Classification of Vascular, Nonvascular, Monocot & Dicot Plants
Plants may not seem like the most interesting things around, but they are definitely useful. In this lesson, we will explore the basic classification of plants and the unique characteristics of each group.
3. Flowering Plants: Reproduction & Fertilization
Some plants use flowers to reproduce. The flowers contain all the parts needed for the reproduction process. This lesson explains how all of these parts are used to create the next generation of flowering plants.
4. 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.
