Parts of Plants

Can you name the Parts of Plants?

what surrounds the spongy mesophyll
the portion of wood that is light-colored functional xylem
column-shaped photosynthetic cells in leaves
created by the vascular cambium and is functional when dead and unfilled
the portion of wood filled with dark oils, gums and resins
meristematic tissue that gives rise to periderm and a wax-filled protective layer (and to more of itself)
general term for cells that transport carbohydrates
regulatory vascular tissue that, in some monocots, concentrates carbon dioxide near RuBisCO
a region of soft spongy parenchyma cells in herbaceous stems, found in the center of dicot stems; replaced by xylem in older trees
layer of cells created by the cork cambium, replaces epidermis in woody plants
meristematic tissue that gives rise to secondary xylem and secondary phloem (and more of itself)
use proton pumps to move sugars along cell walls near sieve tube cells
nonliving layer that reflects both heat and water; found on leaves and stems (but not roots!)
a term for the cluster of xylem and phloem in the center of roots
ring of cells containing the Casparian strip
the phloem of ferns and pines is made up of this type of cell
a layer for photosynthesis and storage found in herbaceous stems and roots
most common and most versatile plant cell; has only one cell wall and is used for storage, secretion, growth (it is meristematic), photosynthesis and wound repair
short wide vascular cell with gaps in both cell walls; efficiently moves water and minerals in angiosperms
supporting cells of ground tissue with extremely thick cell walls and sometimes lignin
lignified vascular cell that transports water and minerals
hole that is found in leaves to allow gas and water vapor exchange
a layer of cells filled with wax and suberin, made to the outside of the cork cambium
plant cell in ground tissue with one thick cell wall that supports growing leaves and stems
cell that secretes substances (often, insecticides) to the outside of the leaf
outside daughter cells of the vascular cambium become this layer
secondary stem growth strengthened by lignified xylem, surrounded by bark
common name for all stem layers outside of the vascular cambium
specialized companion cell (phloem) that 'feeds' starch to a seed
a ring of vascular cells where lateral roots grow out of
a waxy ring that blocks apoplastic water movement
general term for cells that die at maturity in order to transport water and minerals
irregular photosynthetic cells in leaves, first to lose water via transpiration
first plant structure to absorb water from soil
when these swell, stomata close
vascular cell that actively transports carbohydrates in angiosperms
