BD
A mycorrhiza is a mutualistic
relationship between fungal hyphae
and the roots of true plants. The
fungal hyphae increase the
absorptive surface area of the roots
of the plant by alding in the
absorption of water, phosphorus, and
other mineral ions from the soil to
the roots of the plant. The plant is
photosynthetic and provides the
tungus with carbohydrates.
An experiment was conducted to
determine the effect of mycorrhizal
associations on plant growth. Two
groups of plants were grown One
group was planted in soil that had
been sterilized. The other group was
planted in the same type of soil, but
the soil had not been sterilized. All
other factors remained the same
between the two groups. The plants
were allowed to grow for 8 weeks.
Each week, the height in
centimeters) of each plant was
measured. The picture below shows
the plants after a weeks of growth
The data table provides quantitative
data on the growth of the plants over
the 8-week period

3. SC.912.L.14.7 An apple tree is an example of a fruiting plant. A cross-section of the apple is shown below. a. From what part of the apple does structure A develop and what is its primary function? It develops from the guard cells and its primary function is glucose storage. b. It develops from the ground tissue and its primary function is glucose storage. c. It develops from the seeds of the tree and its primary function is for reproduction. d. It develops from the flower of the tree and its primary function is for reproduction. 4. SC.912.L.14.7 Terrestrial plants have stomata on the surface of their leaves. A single stoma is surrounded by two guard cells that change shape to open or close the stoma in response to environmental factors. Which of the following best explains how the structure of the leaf is used in processes that occur in plants? a. Water enters the plant through the surface of the leaf for transpiration. b. Gases for photosynthesis are exchanged through the surface of the leaf. c. Energy for cellular reproduction is absorbed through the surface of the leaf. d. Carbon dioxide enters the plant through the surface of the leaf for cellular reproduction. 5. SC.912.L.14.7 Specialized cells often have a unique size and shape that allow them to perform a specific function in the organism. Cells of the same type are usually organized into tissues that in turn form organs. A given organ may have several different tissues and thus several specialized cell types. Which of the following tissues are matched to the correct physiological function? Ground tissues are specialized for transpiration. b. Meristematic tissues are specialized for growth. c. Dermal tissues are specialized for photosynthesis. d. Vascular tissue are specialized in reproduction. a.
