A+ A A-

The structure of flowers is reviewed. Students will identify the difference between monocotyledons and dicotyledons. They will study the transport systems in plants and distinguish between the structure and function of xylem and phloem. They will also study through simulations the experiments conducted on plants to discover the role of auxins in directly phototactic growth. The function of abscisic acid in determining stomatal opening and closing will also be explored.
