Outline l.jpg

Outline

  • Plant Responses

    • Tropisms

    • Nastic Movements

  • Plant Hormones

    • Auxins

    • Gibberellins

    • Cytokinins

    • Abscisic Acid

    • Ethylene

  • Photoperiodism


Plant responses l.jpg

Plant Responses

  • Tropisms

    • Plant growth toward or away from a unidirectional stimulus is called a tropism

      • Positive is towards stimulus

      • Negative is away from stimulus

    • Phototropism - Light

    • Gravitropism - Gravity

    • Thigmotropism - Touch


Phototropism l.jpg

Phototropism


Phototropism5 l.jpg

Phototropism

  • Positive phototropism:

    • Occurs because cells on the shady side of the stem elongate

    • A pigment related to riboflavin thought to act as a photoreceptor when phototropism occurs

      • Auxin migrates to shady side of stem

      • Shady sides elongate faster than bright side


Gravitropism l.jpg

Gravitropism

  • When a plant is placed on its side, the stem grows upward, opposite of the pull of gravity

  • Stems with root caps grow downward

    • Root cells contain statoliths

  • Auxin is responsible for:

    • Positive gravitropism of roots, and

    • Negative gravitropism of shoots

Gravitropism


Thigmotropism l.jpg

Thigmotropism

  • Unusual growth due to contact with solid objects is called thigmotropism

    • Coiling of tendrils

  • Thigmomorphogenesis occurs when the entire plant responds to the presence of environmental stimuli

    • Wind

    • Rain

Nastic movements l.jpg

Nastic Movements

  • Nastic movements:

    • Do not involve growth and

    • Are not dependent on the stimulus direction

  • Seismonastic movements result from:

    • Touch

    • Shaking, or

    • Thermal stimulation

  • Sleep movements:

    • Occur daily in response to light and dark changes

    • Prayer Plant

Circadian rhythms l.jpg

Circadian Rhythms

  • A circadian rhythms:

    • Biological rhythms with a 24-hour cycle

    • Tend to be persistent

      • Rhythm is maintained in the absence of environmental stimuli

      • Caused by a biological clock


Plant hormones l.jpg

Plant Hormones

  • Almost all communication on a plant is done by hormones

    • Synthesized in one part of the plant

    • Travels within phloem in response to the appropriate stimulus


Auxins l.jpg

Auxins

  • Auxin is produced in shoot and apical meristem and is found in young leaves and in flowers and fruits

    • Apically produced auxin prevents the growth of axillary buds

      • Apical dominance

    • Weak solution of auxin applied to woody cutting causes rapid growth of adventitious roots

      • Promotes fruit growth

How auxins work l.jpg

How Auxins Work

  • Auxins bind to plasma membrane receptors

  • Activated proton pumps H+ out of cell

    • Cell wall loosens

    • Turgor pressure increases due to the entry of water

    • Cell enlarges


Auxin mode of action l.jpg

Auxin Mode of Action


Gibberellins l.jpg

Gibberellins

  • Gibberellins:

    • Growth promoting hormones

    • Bring about elongation of the resulting cells

    • Gibberellic acid

      • Stem elongation

      • Breaking of dormancy

Cytokinins l.jpg

Cytokinins

  • Cytokinins

    • A class of plant hormones that promote cell division

    • Derivatives of adenine

      • Prevent senescence

      • Initiate growth

Abscisic acid l.jpg

Abscisic Acid

  • Abscisic acid (ABA):

    • Initiates and maintains seed and bud dormancy, and

    • Brings about closure of stomata

    • Produced by:

      • Any “green tissue” with chloroplasts

      • Monocot endosperm, and

      • Roots

Ethylene l.jpg

Ethylene

  • Ethylene is involved in abscission

    • Once abscission has begun:

      • Ethylene stimulates certain enzymes

      • Cause leaf, fruit, or flower to drop

    • Also ripens fruit by increasing activity of enzymes that soften fruit

Photoperiodism l.jpg

Photoperiodism

  • Photoperiodism:

    • Any physiological response prompted by changes in day or night length

      • Short-day plants

      • Long-day plants

      • Day-neutral plants

  • Some plants may require a specific sequence of day lengths in order to flower

Phytochrome l.jpg

Phytochrome

  • Phytochrome is a blue-green leaf pigment that alternately exists in two forms

    • Phytochrome red (Pr)

    • Phytochrome far-red (Pfr)

  • Conversion of forms allows a plant to detect photoperiod changes

  • Also promotes seed germination and inhibits stem elongation
