1 Multicellular Organisms Section 2.2

2 Plants Producers – make their own food Autotrophs – self feeder Photosynthesis – captures sunlight and converts to chemical energy Chemical energy (food) is often stored in the form of starch H 2 O + CO 2  C 6 H 12 O 6 + O 2

3 Plants Break down starch into sugar to get energy Cellular respiration C 6 H 12 O 6 + O 2  CO 2 + H 2 O + Energy

4 Adaptations Allow plants to live in a variety of environments Examples: Rate of reproduction, amount of water, temperature, and protection

5 Examples of Adaptations Grasses have deep roots Seeds can be produced quickly in some plants Deciduous trees Conifers Palm trees Cactus

6 Response to Environment Gravity – plants have a sense of up and down Roots grow down; stems grow up Touch Tendrils – special cells that respond to touch of nearby objects Light Plants bend toward light with the help of hormones

7 Hormones A chemical produced in one part of an organism and travels to another part to produce a reaction Auxin – stimulates growth – Moves away from light

8 Respond to seasonal change Shorter amounts of daylight cause trees to go into dormancy or some plants to die Amount of daylight can cause production of flowers
