partially permeable membrane
a membrane that allows only certain substances to pass through
1 of 11
permanent vacuole
space in the cytoplasm filled with cell sap
2 of 11
plasmolysis
the state of plant cells when so much water is lost from the cell by osmosis that the vacuole and cytoplasm shrink and the cell membrane pulls away from the cell wall
3 of 11
phloem
the living transport tissue in plants that carries dissolved food (sugars) around the plant
4 of 11
resolving power
a measure of the ability to distinguish between two separate points that are very close together

ribosomes
the site of protein synthesis in a cell
6 of 11
sperm
the male sex cells or gametes that carry the genetic material from the male parent
7 of 11
stomata
openings in the leaves of plants, particularly on the underside and opened and closed by guard cells, allowing gases to enter and leave the cell
8 of 11
turgor
the pressure inside a plant cell exerted by the cell contents pressing on the cell wall
9 of 11
ventilated
movement of air or water into and out of the gas exchange organ, for example lungs or gills
