Plants. Definition of a Plant:.
Active transport of sugars
Sources and Sinks can change roles.
If photosynthesis is not occurring then sugars can be released from the roots or stems to the leaves for use in cellular respiration.
Radicle – becomes the root
Embryo – hypocotyl, epicoltyl, and radicle
Hypocotyl becomes the lower stem and the epicotyl becomes the upper stem
Seed coat – protective outer layer
