Plants Characteristics & Classfications
This storyboard does not have a description.
Hello there, I am a plant! And I am here too tell you my characteristics and classifications.
If you didn't know, I am made up of cells, Plant cells. Although I have 5 classifications as well. Mosses & Liverworts, Ferns, Gymnosperms (conifers), & Angiosperms (flowering plants). Oh and look the bird.
If you didn't know yet, I need a lot of air & energy from the sun. This is very important.
Another characteristic would be that I perform photosynthesis. Which is when I capture energy of sunlight from the sun, and use carbon dioxide from the air to make and store my own food.
I'm multicellular and eukaryotic. So that means that my cells have a nucleous, and membrane bound organelles.
Mosses grow on moist soil, or rocks, forming a fuzzy mat of tiny green plants. They can survive even freezing temperatures of Antarctica. And liverworts are like mosses, small nonvascular plants that usually live in damp environments.
Gymonosperms are plants that produce seeds that are not enclosed in a fruit. This group also includes conifers. Such as pine trees, which produce cones. Conifers wood is used to make different things, like paper materials. And the sticky fluid they produce (resin) is used to make paint, ink, and soap.
Angiosperms are vascular plants that produce flowers, and fruits which surround, and protect seeds. At least 260,000 living species of angiosperms are being discovered today.
Ferns are seedless vascular plants often grown as house plants, ferns have roots. Ferns have leaves that curl up as they grow.
