Each question is worth 20 points and you must answer all five.
1)Structure suits function has been the major theme of this course. Choose three anatomical features of plants that you have learned and describe how their structure suits their function.
2)For at least the past two decades, studies in plant anatomy have come to rely on a variety of analytical techniques as much as the descriptive text that has been classically used. Describe what these analytical approaches have involved. Be sure to talk about both their advantages and their limitations.
3)The root of a plant is injected with heavy water (H2O18) as a tracer. Describe the path, including all the cell types, tissue types, and organs that this water would travel before being transpired from the leaves.
4)Explain how the cellular and tissue composition and arrangement in the leaves of C3 vs. C4 plants is evolutionarily adaptive to the environments in which these plants thrive, respectively.
5)Identify and describe the male and female reproductive structures of angiosperms and discuss how their structure suits their function.
FINAL Name: Course: Tutor: Institution Date: 1)Structure suits function has been the major theme of this course. Choose three anatomical features of plants that you have learned and describe how their structure suits their function. Plants like animals are made up of cell types that are organized to form tissues. Tissues are organized into organs, and the organs function together in the system. At each level, the structure of the plants cells, tissues or organs is suited to its function. The organs are made up of cells that can be broken down into three types of tissues: the dermal tissue, the vascular tissues, and the ground tissue. The dermal tissue makes up the outer plant layer. It contains epidermal cells that are coated with a cuticle. The cuticle is a waxy coating that prevents the loss of water from the plant. The main purpose of the dermal layer is to protect the plant but also has other specialized roles according to where it is located. In leaves, the dermal tissues contain guard cells that make up the stomata. The Stomata are small openings that help in the exchange of gases. Carbon dioxide(CO2) which is used in photosynthesis diffuses into the leaf through the stomata, and after photosynthesis, Oxygen(O2) diffuses out as a waste product. The stomatal openi
