Water helps a plant by transporting important nutrients through the plant. Nutrients are drawn from the soil and used by the plant. Plant metabolism is defined as the complex steps of physical and chemical events of photosynthesis and respiration. These steps convert water and sunlight into energy. Meanwhile, growth and development take a closer look at signal transduction pathways.
Let’s explore water, photosynthesis, and metabolism in your selected plant.
Water in Plants Discussion:
Draw the pathway, describe the movement, and explain the utilization of water in your plant.
Write the generalized equations of photosynthesis and respiration.
State the differences between aerobic respiration and fermentation.
Growth and Development Discussion:
Identify the types of plant hormones and describe the major functions of each; discuss commercial applications for each.
Distinguish among types of plant responses to the environment and identify the forces behind them.
How does your plant of choice respond to the environment? Does your plant of choice have the potential of becoming a threatened species or endangered?
