1 Plant Adaptation

2 Adaptions for land living Ability to get and retain water – Thick cuticle: waxy leaf cover – Large vacuole: water storage in cells – Roots: suck up water from ground Fibrous roots taproots

3 Adaptions for land living Ability to transport materials from one part of plant to another part: xylem and phloem  “vascular tissue” – Xylem: transports water – Phloem: transports food

4 Adaptions for land living Ability to stand up straight: – Cell wall: made of cellulose (stuff you can’t digest) – Vacuole: full of water

5 Adaptions for land living Ability to reproduce on land – Seeds – Pollen – Flowers – Cones

6 Classifying Plants Nonvascular plants: – Low growing – No roots, no xylem/phloem – Obtain water thru leaves – Thin cell walls – Live in damp shady areas

7 vascular plants Have true vascular tissue (xylem and phloem) – Can transport materials – Can live in dry areas – Allows them to stand up straight
