About This Chapter
Reproduction in Plants - Chapter Summary
The lessons in this chapter provide an overview of reproduction in plants. You can review how angiosperm can reproduce both sexually and asexually. You can also beef up your understanding of how flowering plants are fertilized. After completing the chapter, you should be prepared to:
- Discuss the life cycle of flowering plants
- Explain how the next generation of flowering plants are created
- Provide details about flower-pollinator relationships
- Recall the seed germination process
- Describe dispersal in ecology
You can study all the lessons in order, or just the topics of your choosing. These lessons help you better comprehend how plants reproduce, and our instructors provide plenty of helpful examples. A brief quiz is available for each lesson to test your knowledge, and you can also print the quizzes.
1. Flowering Plants: Life Cycle & Examples
You likely know that a flower is the reproductive part of a flowering plant (or angiosperm). Did you know that a flower can be male, or female, or both? Or that an angiosperm can reproduce sexually or asexually? This lesson covers the angiosperm life cycle.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. What is Seed Germination? - Definition, Process, Steps & Factors
This lesson is about seed germination, the process of seeds growing into plants. In this lesson, we'll go over the steps of germination, and what factors influence how seeds germinate.
5. Dispersal in Ecology: Definition & Explanation
When you see a bunch of seeds floating through the air, they are dispersing in order to move to a new home. Both plants and animals disperse actively or passively. We'll discuss both ways in this lesson.
