1. 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.
2. Structure of Leaves: The Epidermis, Palisade and Spongy Layers
Leaves may look pretty in the fall when they are changing colors, but they also provide many necessary functions for plants. In this lesson, we will explore the structures and functions of leaves.
3. Nitrogen Fixation: Significance to Plants and Humans
Almost 80% of our atmosphere is nitrogen, but we can't use it. We will look at how this unusable nitrogen is converted into a form we can use and why nitrogen is important to plants and humans.
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.
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.
6. Capillary Action in Plants: Definition & Examples
Capillary action is the process that plants use to pull water up from the ground. This lesson explains what capillary action is, describes all the forces necessary for it to happen, and goes through examples of the process.
7. Cellulose in Plants: Function & Structure
All plants make the molecule cellulose. Not only is there more cellulose than any other organic molecule on Earth, but its unique structure lends itself to a wide variety of functions and products.
8. Dicotyledon Plants: Examples & Definition
When evaluating the structure of plants, botanists classify them as monocots or dicots. In this lesson, we'll learn about dicots, more formally known as dicotyledon plants.
9. Ground Tissue in Plants: Function, System & Definition
How do plants support and feed themselves? Ground tissue is important in plants because it is responsible for creating food from sunlight as well helping plants grow longer and stand upright.
10. Parts of a Flower Carpel
The reason that many plants produce flowers is for reproduction. In this lesson, you will learn about the structure and function of the carpel - the female reproductive part of a flower.
11. Vascular Tissue in Plants: Function & Structure
Learn about plants' circulatory system in this lesson. At the end, you should be able to briefly explain the major differences between xylem and phloem, understand what they do, and describe how they can be used to identify different kinds of plants.
12. Why Do Onions Make People Cry?
Have you ever wondered why onions make people cry? This lesson provides two explanations. One is a matter of survival and the other is a matter of the precise chemical reactants involved in this process.
13. Aster Flower: Definition, Types & Leaves
Learn about one of the most colorful and showy attractions of a flower garden, the aster flower. Read about the different types and learn more about this late summer and early fall bloomer.
14. Citrus Greening Disease: Symptoms & Treatment
Citrus greening is a devastating disease. In this lesson, we will discuss the history of the disease, symptoms you can identify on infected trees, and what people are doing to try and manage it.
