Max Vidal Mr. Rizzo Photosynthesis Essay 4-23-14 When a seed is planted into the ground and given the proper amount of sunlight and water, it becomes a beautiful plant and the process it goes through is photosynthesis. A plant is made up of Eukaryotic cells, which are multi cellular, which means it has more than one cell. Plants produce asexually, this process is called budding. Budding is a form of asexual reproduction in which a new plant develops from a bud due to cell division. Plants are autotrophic which means they get needed nutrients by making food for themselves. Before the plant becomes a plants it is a seedling, Germination is the process by which a plant grows from a seed. Germination is the sprouting of a seedling from a seed of an angiosperm or gymnosperm. There are two different plants, monocots and dicots. Dicots are when the embryo has two cotyledons, and Monocots are when the embryo has one cotyledon. The Cotyledons job is to provide energy for the seed. Plants make food in their leaves. The leaves contain a specimen called chlorophyll. Chlorophyll makes the green color on leaves. Chlorophyll can make food the plant can use from carbon dioxide, water, food, and energy from the sun. This process is called photosynthesis. Roots are vital to a plant in many different ways: they provide stability, store nutrients, and give the plant water. The root comprises all parts of the plant that lie beneath the soil. The main function of the roots are too anchor the plant and store nutrients, without the roots the plant would die. Another part of the plant is the stem, the stems function is to give the plant structure and transport water. The stem transports water by the Xylem and Phloem, theses pigments of the plant are tissue that is made up of tubular vessels that transport water and minerals from the roots trough the plants.
