1 Plants Vocabulary

2 Photosynthesis  The process by which plants and some other organisms capture and use light energy to make food from carbon dioxide and water

3 Petal  Petals are used to attract insects into the flower, they may have guidelines on them and be scented.

4 Stigma  Is covered in a sticky substance that the pollen grains will adhere to.

5 Style  Raises the stigma away from the Ovary to decrease the likelihood of pollen contamination. It varies in length.

6 Ovary  This protects the ovule and once fertilization has taken place it will become the fruit.

7 Ovule  like the egg in animals and once fertilization has taken place will become the seed.

8 Receptacle  the flower's attachment to the stalk and in some cases becomes part of the fruit after fertilization e.g. strawberry.

9 Flower Stalk  Gives support to the flower and elevates the flower for the insects.

10 Nectary  where a sugary solution called nectar is held to attract insects.

11 Sepal  protect the flower while it is developing from a bud.

12 Filament  This is the stalk of the Anther.

13 Anther  Contains pollen sacs that release pollen onto the outside of the anther to be picked up by insects or the wind and carried to the stigma.

14 Chloroplast  A structure in the cells of plants and some other organisms that captures energy from sunlight and uses it to produce food

15 Cuticle  The waxy, waterproof layer that covers the leaves and stems of most plants

16 Vascular Plant  A plant that has true vascular tissue

17 Nonvascular Plant  A low-growing plant that lacks true vascular tissue

18 Chlorophyll  A green pigment found in the chloroplasts of plants, algae, and some bacteria

19 Accessory Pigment  A pigment other than chlorophyll found in plant cells

20 Rhizoid  A thin, rootlike structure that anchors a moss and absorbs water and nutrients for the plant

21 Vascular Tissue  The internal transporting tissue in some plants that is made up of tubelike structures
