* *

Classified as nonvascular plants ________

Classified as vascular plants ________

Belong to kingdom plantae ________

Rhizoids are present ________

Undergoes alternation of generations________

Capable of carrying out photosynthesis________

Spores are formed in sporangia that are usually on the underside of
fronds________

Sporophyte generation is not commonly seen and is non-green________

Cells have a rigid cell wall ________

Must exchange gases with the surrounding air________

*TRUE OR FALSE*

-Less water is lost via transpiration on a humid day than on a dry day

-Tree bark is an example of a plant adaptation to reduction of water
loss

-In flowering plants, the male reproductive organs are the stigmas

-In a moss, the cells of the gametophyte generations are haploid

-Gymnosperms have reproductive structures in needle shaped leaves

-Nonvascular plants are well adapted for growth in dry environments

-Oxygen released from a plant during photosynthesis may be used in the
process of cellular respiration

-It is important that the outsides of the cells making up a leaf's
palisade
and spongy layers be totally dry in order to aid in gas exchange.

-Lenticels are tiny opening present on plant leaves that allow for gas
exchange

-Oxygen needed by root cells originally enters through root hairs via
the
process of diffusion

-Cellular respiration, unlike photosynthesis, occurs in plants only
during
the night in the absence of light.

-Large vascular plants have specialized gas transport system.
