Intro

  • Plants make their own food.
  • The largest group of flowering plants are called the dicotyledons. These are mainly land-living plants and have specialised stuctures such as leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds - all supported by roots and a stem.
  • Leaves - usually adapted to maximise the proces of photosynthesis (cacti used for defence)
  • Roots - adapted to absorb nutrients from soil and water and to anchor the plant. Useful for storage and perennation
  • Perennation - surviving from one year to the next
  • Flowers - organs of sexual reproduction
