What are the Parts of a Plant?

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.

Nonvascular Plants: Examples, Definition & Characteristics

2. Nonvascular Plants: Examples, Definition & Characteristics

This lesson will explore the world of a small and simple type of plant known as a nonvascular plant. We'll also discuss types of nonvascular plants and their importance in the environment.

Vascular Plants: Examples, Types & Characteristics

3. Vascular Plants: Examples, Types & Characteristics

This lesson will explore the characteristics of a large group of plants known as vascular plants. The lesson will also focus on the different types of vascular plants and unique examples.

The Classification, Genetics & Evolution of Organisms

4. The Classification, Genetics & Evolution of Organisms

Understanding the reason for the high biodiversity of organisms on Earth requires a solid grasp of genetics, evolution, and the system by which we classify them. Here we will explore these concepts, and finish with a brief quiz.

Angiosperms: Characteristics, Definition & Examples

5. Angiosperms: Characteristics, Definition & Examples

Flowering plants are also known as angiosperms. In this lesson, we will explore this vast group of plants to learn what sets them apart from other types of plants and how they survive.

Freshwater Biomes: Climate, Locations, Plants & Animals

6. Freshwater Biomes: Climate, Locations, Plants & Animals

Freshwater biomes are very important to life on Earth. They are home to many different species and provide a lot of resources. In this lesson, we will go over what a freshwater biome is, where they are located, and the different plants and animals that inhabit them.

Open Ocean Biome: Plants, Animals, Climate & Definition

7. Open Ocean Biome: Plants, Animals, Climate & Definition

Seventy-one percent of the surface of our planet is covered by the oceans. It should be no surprise that the open ocean biome is the largest biome on Earth. In this lesson, we will investigate the properties and inhabitants of the open ocean biome.

What is a Terrestrial Ecosystem? - Definition, Examples & Types

8. What is a Terrestrial Ecosystem? - Definition, Examples & Types

There are a variety of different ecosystems all over the world. In this lesson, we will examine terrestrial ecosystems. This will allow us to gain an understanding of the living and non-living factors that makeup these dynamic ecosystems.

Properties of Alleles

9. Properties of Alleles

What is a dominant phenotype and how will it affect Adrian's flying hamster research? Tune in as he studies homozygous and heterozygous genotypes and the phenotypes they produce.
