5 Vascular plants Generally contain xylem and phloem. These two tissues extend from the leavesto the roots, and are vital conduitsfor water and nutrient transport. In a sense, they are to plants what veins and arteries are to animals.
6 Xylem and PhloemXylem: dead tubular cells that transport water and dissolved minerals upward from the roots to leaves.Phloem: living tubular cells that transport sugars from the leaves to all parts of the plant.

8 4 kinds : Vascular plants 2. Vascular plants with naked seedsGymnosperms: Produce seed in cones.Cycadophyta: (When did most of these live?) p615Ginkgophyta: (How many species are still on Earth?) p616Gnetophyta: (Describe one interesting feature of one Gnetophyta). p next.
9 Still on vascular plants with Naked seeds. Coniferophyta: (draw the life cycle of a coniferopyta). p621Why is the seed “Naked”?The seed is not protectedby a fruitnor does it have a flower.
10 Evergreen Plants Retain their leaves all year. Conifers are adapted to cold climatesThick needle cuticle to prevent water loss when dormant over winter.
11 Deciduous plants Lose all leaves each winter. An adaptation to prevent water loss in winter dormant time.Leaves lose the water in plants but also photosynthesis.A few Conifers like larches and bald cypress are deciduous.
13 Design your own key Use the trees provided Spend 30 seconds observing each treeLook at:Needle sizeShapeColorTextureBudsStem color, texture . . .
14 Create your key Separate trees based on characteristics. Make up names for your tree species.Make the key so that when I hand you a new tree, you can identify it.Give your key to another group and have them identify a tree. If they have problems, change your key.
