Life Cycles Back to Top
Animal life cycles have meiosis followed immediately by gametogenesis. Gametes are produced directly by meiosis. Male gametes are sperm. Female gametes are eggs or ova. The plant life cycle has mitosis occurring in spores , produced by meiosis, that germinate into the gametophyte phase. Gametophyte size ranges from three cells (in pollen ) to several million (in a "lower plant" such as moss). Alternation of generations occurs in plants, where the sporophyte phase is succeeded by the gametophyte phase. The sporophyte phase produces spores by meiosis within a sporangium . The gametophyte phase produces gametes by mitosis within an antheridium (producing sperm) and/or archegonium (producing eggs). Within the plant kingdom the dominance of phases varies. Nonvascular plants , the mosses and liverworts, have the gametophyte phase dominant. Vascular plants show a progression of increasing sporophyte dominance from the ferns and "fern allies" to angiosperms. The above image is reduced from gopher://

Gymnosperms are Seed Plants Back to Top
Gymnosperms have seeds but not fruits or flowers. Gymnos means naked, sperm means seed: gymnosperm = naked seeds. Gymnosperms developed during the Paleozoic Era and became dominant during the early Mesozoic Era . There are 700 living species placed into four divisions: conifers, cycads, ginkgos, and gnetales (such as Ephedra The fossil records of some protist and plant groups. The width of the shaded space is an indicator of the number of species. Image from Purves et al., Life: The Science of Biology , 4th Edition, by Sinauer Associates ( ) and WH Freeman ( ), used with permission. Gymnosperms are undoubtedly the group from which the angiosperms developed, although, as Charles Darwin noted in Origin of Species , which group "remains an abominable mystery". Numerous gymnosperm groups have been proposed as flowering plant ancestorts over the past century.

How to Identify Plants.
Important Features of Flowering Plants

Flowering plants (Angiospermae) represent one of the largest groups of primary producers. Their contribution to the production of oxygen as well as that to the nutriment of animals and man is consequently very large. All features reviewed in this chapter refer to seed-producing plants, also called spermatophytes. Typically, flowering plants are organized into an underground root and a shoot above ground that consists itself of a stem and leaves . The organs of a plant that serve sexual reproduction are the flowers . Part of the pollinated flower ripens and becomes the fruit
In contrast to many other plant groups, flowering plants are striking, numerous and common. They are the most important group of the so-called primary producers that generate the prerequisite for life on earth: oxygen. Green plants have the ability to convert solar energy into chemical energy (photosynthesis) producing the oxygen necessary for all other organisms as a by-product. The useable plants among the flowering plants are - directly or indirectly - the basis of human existence; they are, too, an important economical factor. A basic knowledge of flowering plants should therefore be among everybody's general knowledge. Much has been written about flowering plants and every reader of this chapter will miss something that he regards worth knowing, while he might find other information trivial. But everybody will understand that it is impossible to review in a few lines a theme about which an extensive, partly popular scientific literature exists. And although this term may sometimes be used in a disparaging way, most of the popular scientific literature is scientifically correct, lucid and, above all, very well illustrated.

Diversity Of Flowering Plants
Flowering Plants Have Literally Colonized
The Continents And Islands Of The Earth
F lowering plants (angiosperms) comprise about 90 percent of the Kingdom Plantae. The total number of described species exceeds 230,000, and many tropical species are as yet unnamed. During the past 130 million years, flowering plants have colonized practically every conceivable habitat on earth, from sun-baked deserts and windswept alpine summits to fertile grasslands, freshwater marshes, dense forests and lush mountain meadows. Although a number of flowering plants live in aquatic habitats and have adapted to the saline conditions of dry lake beds and salt marshes, relatively few species live submersed in the oceans. True marine angiosperms are found throughout the oceans of the world, although most species are distributed in tropical regions. They are sometimes referred to as "seagrasses" and include about 50 species in 12 genera. The Amazing Marine Seagrasses
T he three largest flowering plant families containing the greatest number of species are the sunflower family (Asteraceae) with about 24,000 species, the orchid family (Orchidaceae) with about 20,000 species, and the legume or pea family (Fabaceae) with 18,000 species. The total number of species for these three enormous families alone is approximately 62,000, roughly 25 percent of all the flowering plant species on earth. To put it another way, if you randomly lined up all the species of flowering plants on earth, every fourth one would be an orchid, a sunflower or a legume. The state of California (where WAYNE'S WORD is based) includes about 5,000 native and naturalized species, and 41 percent of these species belong to the following six plant families: sunflower family (Asteraceae), grass family (Poaceae), legume family (Fabaceae), snapdragon family (Scrophulariaceae), mustard family (Brassicaceae), and sedge family (Cyperaceae).

95. Montana Plant Life - Flora And Identification Of Edible, Medicinal And Poisonous
Articles, images, and information on flowering, medicinal, edible, and poisonous plants of Montana.
Welcome to Montana Plant Life!
This web site presents a wide variety of Montana wildflowers and other plants growing in the wilds of Montana. The flora of Montana is very varied and contains many species which range extends from the Pacific Northwest region as well as from the Great Plains. The site includes edible plants, medicinal plants as well as poisonous plants with sub-categories for edible roots, poisonous berries etc. Choices can also be made for displaying introduced vs. native plants and weeds. On the left menu there are indexes for english and scientific names, plus all presented species ordered after families. There are also lists for flowering month and plant types, for a total of 31 different indexes. Each presented species has its own page with pictures, a full description and, if applicable, information about edibility, medicinal and poisonous properties. The plant search engine from the title bar above can be used to search the entire plant identification database for any words or phrases, for example "lily", "arthritis", "Lewisia", "cancer" etc. If a name is not found in the indexes, it can often be found from a search instead. Each presented plant family has its own page with a description of its unique characteristics plus a plant identification online guide with pictures, short descriptions and links to the species that belong to it. The menu on the title bar above is the main navigation of the site. On the plant identification page, flower color, number of petals, leaf type etc. can be selected to find an unknown plant. This unique online plant identification system uses easy choices and images instead of a traditional plant identification key to arrive at the correct species. The site is created with the intent that anybody, without much prior knowledge about botany, should be able to identify and find information about Montana wildflowers and plants in general from the Montana flora. Therefore the guides on each family and genus page have also been set up to use easily recognizable features about the plants and, in addition, the images can be used to find the correct species.

Under Construction: More Information And Photos To Come
W hen one organism steals all of its food from another organism's body it is called a parasite. The organism who is being robbed of its food supply is called the host. The parasitic mode of existence can be found throughout the kingdoms of life, from bacteria and fungi to insects, arachnids and worms. Parasitism has also evolved in many families of flowering plants. Some heterotrophic flowering plants get their nutrition from mycorrhizal soil fungi that are in turn attached to the roots of forest trees. These interesting plants are called mycotrophic wildflowers or mycoheterotrophs and are discussed in another article called fungus flowers
. True plant parasites can be hemiparasitic (semiparasitic) with photosynthetic leaves (such as mistletoe), or holoparasitic and completely dependent on their host (such as dodder). Some stem parasites, such as a local southern California desert native ( Pilostyles thurberi
), are endoparasitic and live completely within the stems of their host. The only part of

Abaxial means being located on the side away from the axis . The abaxial surface of a leaf is its underside. ABSCISIC ACID Abscisic acid is a plant hormone that inhibits growth, causes the abscission of leaves, induces dormancy, closes stomata, and triggers other phenomena in response to adverse conditions. ABSCISSION Abscission is the normal separation of a leaf , fruit, or flower from a plant. Abscisic acid is the plant hormone involved in abscission. ABSCISSION ZONE The abscission zone is the area at the base of leaf's petiole, a fruit stalk, or a branch in which the separation (abscission) layer develops. The disintegration of this layer causes a leaf , fruit, or flower to fall from a plant. Abscisic acid is the plant hormone involved in this process.
