General Plant Organization Back to Top
A plant has two organ systems : 1) the shoot system, and 2) the root system. The shoot system is above ground and includes the organs such as leaves, buds, stems, flowers (if the plant has any), and fruits (if the plant has any). The root system includes those parts of the plant below ground, such as the roots, tubers , and rhizomes Major organ systems of the plant body. The above image (left) is from Purves et al., Life: The Science of Biology , 4th Edition, by Sinauer Associates ( ) and WH Freeman ( ), used with permission. The above illustration (right) is from gopher:// Plant cells are formed at meristems, and then develop into cell types which are grouped into tissues . Plants have only three tissue types: 1) Dermal Ground ; and 3) Vascular . Dermal tissue covers the outer surface of herbaceous plants. Dermal tissue is composed of epidermal cells, closely packed cells that secrete a waxy cuticle that aids in the prevention of water loss. The ground tissue comprises the bulk of the primary plant body. Parenchyma, collenchyma, and sclerenchyma cells are common in the ground tissue. Vascular tissue transports food, water, hormones and minerals within the plant. Vascular tissue includes xylem, phloem, parenchyma, and cambium cells.

    • Golgi Apparatus: A series (stack) of flattened, membrane-bound sacs (saccules) involved in the storage, modification and secretion of proteins (glycoproteins) and lipids destined to leave the cell (extracellular) and for use within the cell (intracellular). The Golgi apparatus is abundant in secretory cells, such as cells of the pancreas.
    • Golgi Vesicle: A membrane-bound body that forms by "budding" from the Golgi apparatus. It contains proteins (glycoproteins), such as digestive enzymes, and migrates to the cell (plasma) membrane. Golgi vesicles fuse with the cell membrane and discharge their contents into the exterior of the cell through a process called exocytosis. Some Golgi vesicles become lysosomes which are involved in intracellular digestion.
    • Pinocytotic Vesicle: A membrane-bound vacuole formed by a specific type of endocytosis called pinocytosis. The plasma membrane invaginates (pinches inwardly) to form a vesicle that detaches and moves into the cytoplasm. Macromolecular droplets and particles up to 2 micrometers in diameter enter the cell within these pinocytotic vesicles. Larger particles (including bacteria) enter special white blood cells (phagocytes) through a form of endocytosis called phagocytosis. The

    The Plant Cell
    I. The Anatomy of a Plant Cell.
    A. Cell Wall. Found only in plant cells. Composedof microfibrils Imagine each cell being enclosed by a relatively rigid box. During cell growth and division, the cell wall is chemically "softened" to allow cell expansion. Main component of plant primary cell walls is cellulose which is freely permeable to water. Secondary cell walls may become lignified (e.g. in xylem cells that form wood). The middle lamella cements individual cells together using pectic substances. Holes that allow the cytoplasm to connect between cells are called Think of this as a brick wall B. . The P.M. regulates the movement of substances into and out of the cytoplasm of the cell. The diagram shown is called the fluid mosaic model of the plasma membrane . Is composed of a double layer of lipid molecules with proteins interspersed upon and within. When cells die, the plasma membrane looses its regulatory ability. Think of this as a line of guards C. . Occurs in animal and plant cells but much more prominent in plants. May take up 90% of the volume of the cell. Actually gives structural support to the cell. Membrane bound (vacuolar membrane), much like the plasma membrane. Storage vessicle for water, sugars, salts, pigments, as well as toxic substances such as acids, tannins, alkaloids, latex, etc. Serves to isolate these compounds from the cell itself. Think of this as a water reservoir D.

    Anatomy and Physiology
    Every individual living thing is made of smaller parts. The smaller parts have different functions, but all of the parts work together to enable the individual to live and survive in its environment. The smaller parts are made of even smaller parts, which are made of smaller parts, and smaller parts, until you reach the smallest part of all: the cell . The cell is the basic building block of all living things.
    Cells Alive
    Cell Structure and Functions
    Some tiny organisms , called protists , are made of only one cell. Since the single cell must work alone, it has to do everything to make sure that the organism survives. Protists can not be seen with the human eye. To observe tiny organisms in their microworlds, you can use a microscope
    Multi-celled organisms are more complex. Different parts have different functions, each part sharing the work and cooperating to make sure that the organism survives.
    In a plant, for example, the cells working together in the roots make sure that the plant gets the water and nutrients from the soil that the plant needs to survive. The cells working together in the leaves make sure that the plant exchanges oxygen for the carbon dioxide that the plant needs to survive. The roots and the leaves work together as a system for the plant to survive.

    Before we look at plant anatomy in detail, I want to caution you that we will be looking almost exclusively at Angiosperms, also know as flowering plants. Angiosperms are by far the most diverse group of plants known (over 275,000 named species and thought to be at least that many more unknown to science). Within the Angiosperms, there are two plant groups, the Monocots and the Dicots . The distinction between these two groups is not always clear, but some general trends are outlined below:

    Course Syllabus
    Instructor : Paul J. Schulte, WHI 308, 895-3300, Text : Mauseth, JD. 1988. Plant Anatomy. Benjamin/Cummings Publishing. Course Description : This course is an introduction to the basic internal structure of plant cells, tissues, and organs. We will consider the appearance and description of plant parts, but also emphasize developmental and functional aspects. In other words, we will relate structures with how they arose and their possible functions. The lab will consist of experience with the use of microscopes, the sectioning and staining of plant materials, and the observation of plant structures. Grading : There will be three lecture exams (including final), and two laboratory exams. Each exam will count for 20% of the grade. The final exam (unlike the first two exams) will be somewhat comprehensive in that it will include some general concepts from earlier parts of the course. Exams : The lecture exams will consist of a combination of multiple-choice and short-essay questions. The lab exams will involve a series of observations at microscope stations. Each station will provide one or more questions and you record a short answer on a sheet provided. Disability Statement : If you have a documented disability that may require assistance, you will need to contact the Disability Resource Center for coordination in your academic accommodations. The DRC is located in the Reynolds Student Services Complex in Room 137. The DRC phone number is 895-0866 (TDD-895-0652).
