2ai) plants which have stamens and pistils, and produce true seeds; phenogamous plants; – distinguished from flowerless plants.
ii) i] Bulb :- – Short, upright organ used by plants for food storage or reproduction, with specialized leaves modified into thick flesh scales. Tulips and Lilies.
ii] Corm :- Short, upright, hard or fleshy stems covered with thin, dry papery leaves.
iii] Rhizome :- – With reduced scale like leaves. The top can generate leafy stems while the bottom can produce roots. Iris.
iv] Stolon :- Horizontal stems that run at or just below the soil surface with nodes that root and long internodes, the ends produce new plants. When above ground they are called”runners”.
V) Tuber :- An enlarged fleshy end of a stem, generally from rhizomes but often also referring to thickened roots too.
2b) [i] The vegetative stage :- These leafy plants have a large amount of digestible cell contents, and a high feed value.
[ii] Elongation / transition stage>leading to the Reproductive Stage :- This is influenced by the longer daylight hours and warmer
[iii] Flowering /reproductive stage :- A flower emerges from within the top leaf sheath (the flag
leaf). A seed head then develops.
2c)[ i] Botanical studies have found that transpiration is important for survival of the plant.
[ii] It is crucial for uptake of nutrients from the soil medium
[iii] It is controlling photosynthesis (most importantly for exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide).
[Iv] Transpiration is beneficial for maintaining the plant temperature and keeping the plants cool in hot conditions.
3a)[ i] Protozoas :- Small single cell
microbes that feed on bacteria.
[ii] Actinomycetes :- Necessary for the breakdown of certain
components in organic matter.
[iii] Algae :- Beneficial groups such as blue-green algae, yellow-green algae and diatoms.
[Iv] Bacteria :- Small, single cell organisms that make up the single most abundant type of microbe.
[V] Fungi :- The largest microbe group in terms of mass.
