Investigating Plant Structure and Function

From the: Biology of Plants Series

Plants possess a wide variety of structures that enable them to accomplish amazing things. This engaging video investigates structures common to most plants and describes how these features enable them to survive. Familiar, everyday examples help students understand the means by which plants carry out their lives. Concepts and terminology include: meristematic tissue, ground tissue, cambium, xylem, epidermis, phloem, roots, cortex, herbaceous stem, stomates, pith, woody stem, terminal bud, guard cells, mesophyll, palisade, transpiration, and translocation.
