THE FLOWER

Packet #74

Chapters 30 & 38


The petals

THE PETALS

The Petals

Figure 30.7Page 598

  • Petals are often brightly colored and of various shapes

    • Aid in attracting pollinators

    • Also considered sterile floral parts.

  • Within the ring of petals are the fertile sporophytes, stamens and carpels.


Stamens

STAMENS

Stamens

Figure 30.7Page 598

  • The stamens are the male reproductive organs and is one of the fertile floral parts

  • Sporophytes produce the microspores that develop into male gametophytes.

  • Composed of a terminal sac called an anther where pollen is produced.

    • Anther is also supported by a stalk called a filament.


Carpel

CARPEL

Carpel

Figure 30.7Page 598

  • Carpels are the female reproductive organs and are the fertile floral parts

  • Sporophytes produce megaspores which develop into female gametophytes.

  • The tip of carpel is a sticky stigma that collects pollen

  • Style leads to the ovary at the base of the carpel

  • Inside the ovary are ovules

    • Develop into seeds if fertilized


Adaptations in flowers over the years

ADAPTATIONS IN FLOWERS OVER THE YEARS

  • In certain flowers, one or more of the four floral whorls have been eliminated.

  • There are also a variety of flower shapes, sizes and colors which represent adaptations to pollinators.


Flower terminology

FLOWER TERMINOLOGY


Terminology

TERMINOLOGY

  • Complete flowers

    • Four floral whorls

  • Incomplete flowers

    • Lacking one or more of the four floral shorls

  • Bisexual flower

    • Have stamen and carpels

    • Known as perfect flowers but can be complete or incomplete

  • Unisexual flower

    • Imperfect flowers

    • Staminate flowers if only the male organs are present

    • Carpellate flowers if only the female organs are present


Terminology ii

TERMINOLOGY II

  • Monoecious Plants

    • Plants have staminate and carpellate flowers on the same plant

      • Corn

      • Cucumber

  • Dioecious Plants

    • Plants have staminate and carpellate flowers on different plants

      • Ginkgos
