General Plant Info Needed

Post by aaronsamuels70 » Mon May 19, 2008 10:00 pm

I'm a Grade 11 Bio student in Canada and my teacher just dumped a porject on me which is do at the end of the week. However, I don't know $h%t about plants! I'm not asking for you guys to do my homework for me (although it would be greatly appreciated :D :D :D ) but if someone could please tell me which details or terms I should include in the folowing sections, it would be greatly appreciated:

Pressure Flow Hypothesis - details to describe the process
Leaf - parts and their functions
Root pressure - details to describe prsocess
Xylem & Phloem - details to describe process
Root - Sturcture and Function
Flower- Parts and Function
Transpiration - details to describe process
Capillary Action - details to describe process

Any and all info is appreciated! This project will be worth roughly 30% of my final term mark so ppppllleeeaaassseee help me out!

Thanks

You should start reading some background info(wikipedia or textbook). It's hard to help when you're being vague/broadly speaking.

I recommend you read my paper I wrote last year. Its fairly general and brief and will give you an idea of where to go. You can download it here: about11096.html

If I were you when I am reading over your research group it by anatomy and physiology. So water and nutrient movement to vascular tissue. Leaves to transpiration and pressure in the plant. Its all interconnected stuff that your teacher gave you. I recommend you get a good general college bio course book maybe. Try hitting up a Barnes and Nobles.
