  1. Plant Growth and Development

  2. Flowering Plants are either Monocots or Dicots.

  3. Cotyledons provide nutrition for the plant’s early life http://home.earthlink.net/~pj1place/dicot.jpg Monocot seed Dicot seedling cotyledons http://forages.oregonstate.edu/projects/regrowth/cornseed.jpg

  7. Root cross-section Monocot root Dicot root (center) Cortex Phloem in ‘pockets’ Alternating xylem and phloem Xylem in an ‘X’ endodermis www.nsci.plu.edu/~jmain/ b359web/pages/roots.htm http://biology.nebrwesleyan.edu/benham/bio50/pltanatomy/images/dicotrootstele.JPG

  8. Primary Growth • Primary growth leads to an increase in length of the plant shoots or roots. It is due to the activity of apical meristems.

  9. Secondary Growth Secondary growth leads to the increase in thickness of a plant. This is due to lateral meristems.
