About This Chapter
Plant Reproduction & Growth - Chapter Summary
Gain greater insight into plant reproduction and growth using these fun lessons. This chapter closely examines the reproductive anatomy of plants, fertilization in plants and pollination. You'll also take a look at what primary consumers are. Once you've completed the lessons, you will have the knowledge to do the following:
- Describe the function of a pollen tube
- Describe the structure and function of male reproductive organs in plants
- Explain the angiosperm life cycle and double fertilization in angiosperms
- Detail the process of plant reproductive morphology
- List types of pollination in plants and describe the pollination process
- Share advantages and disadvantages of asexual reproduction in plants
- Discuss the morphologic, biochemical and physical characteristics that create insect resistance in crops
- Provide details about the history and innovation of rice breeding
Enjoy the ability to study plant reproduction and growth without the time constraints associated with traditional classes or live tutoring sessions. All the lessons in this chapter are available around-the-clock and can be accessed using any computer, smartphone or tablet with an Internet connection. Use our multiple-choice quizzes and practice exam to gauge your readiness to take your test. The Dashboard keeps track of your progress through this chapter and enables you to submit lesson topic questions to our experts.
1. Primary Consumers: Definition & Examples
Learn all about primary consumers and become familiar with some examples of them. After reading the lesson, the quiz will test your knowledge of primary consumers and your ability to recognize examples.
2. Pollen Tube: Growth, Function & Formation
During the fertilization process, some plants utilize a pollen tube. In this lesson, we'll explore how a pollen tube forms, how it functions and how it grows.
3. Male Reproductive Organs in Plants: Structure & Function
When you look at the flowers in your garden, the last thing that comes to mind is their sex-life, but it should! This lesson will focus on the male reproductive organs in plants and then will go over plant reproduction to show how it all works.
4. 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.
5. Double Fertilization in Angiosperms: Definition & Process
You may already know that fertilization is when an egg and sperm cell fuse to create a new individual, but do you know what double fertilization is? It is a process that is unique to angiosperms, and you can learn about it in this lesson.
6. What Is Pollination in Plants? - Definition & Types
This lesson will focus on the important process of pollination in plants. The lesson will also explain the types of pollination and how the environment and animals are involved in pollination.
7. Pollination Process: Male & Female Flower Components
In this lesson, we'll learn about the pollination process and the components in plants that make this possible. We'll also learn about the various forms of pollination and how they work.
8. Asexual Reproduction in Plants: Advantages, Disadvantages & Types
Plants are successful because they have evolved to have a variety of ways to reproduce. In this lesson, we will examine asexual reproduction in plants to learn the types, as well as the pros and cons of this means of reproduction.
9. Insect Resistance in Crops: Morphologic, Biochemical & Physical Characteristics
In this lesson, we'll be looking at the adaptations that make many plants naturally resistant to insect attacks. Here, we'll describe the morphologic, biochemical, and physical characteristics of crop plants that help them resist insects.
