Plant Structures

Segment: 6. Plant & Animal Physiology, Standard: Apply knowledge of plant anatomy and the functions of plant structures to activities associated with plant systems. (Technical II.A.2) Examine unique plant properties to identify/describe functional differences in plant structures including roots, stems, flowers, leaves, and fruit. (Pathway II.B.1)


Plant structures describe the way that the plant is organized and works together. Different systems within a plant could include the shoot, root and leaf system. To dive further into plant structures, information about tissues (epidermis, phloem, xylem, etc.), cells, and organs can be discussed. The functions of each of these systems should be identified and discussed as well.
