Plant Taxonomy: Summary & Characteristics

Defining Characteristics of the Plant Kingdom: Multicellular Terrestrial Embryophytes Photosynthetic (almost all) Eukaryotic 4 Major Groups 1.     Non-Vascular Plants (Bryophytes and Friends) No vascular tissue – therefore must rely on surrounding moisture and osmosis to move fluids through their bodies. Small in stature, and simplistic – NO organs (roots, leaves, stems) (Rhizoids = root-like structures…

Glucose & Sucrose Fermentation: Carbon Dioxide Production Lab Answers

Introduction The different types of sugars used in fermentation had a significant impact on the amount of carbon dioxide produced. Glucose produced the most with a gas bubble of 132mm while sucrose yielded 102mm of carbon dioxide. Method The gas by product in fructose measured only 56mm.The control with no sugar resulted in 0mm of…

Ventricles and Meninges

Ventricles= expansions of the brain’s central cavity Filled with CSF, lined with ependymal cells Continuous with each other, central canal, and spinal cord 1st/2nd= paired lateral ventricles (lie in cerebral hemispheres) [separated by septum pellucidum– transparent wall] 3rd ventricle lies within diencephalon [connected to each lateral ventricles by interventricular foreamen] In midbrain is central cavity…

Acceleration Due to Gravity & Velocity of an Object in Free Fall Lab Answers

Purpose The purpose of this lab was to evaluate the increase in velocity with time during a free fall. Also, to determine the position from the start of the fall. Hypothesis It is hypothesized that the object that is dropped will endure gradual change acceleration in acceleration. The acceleration for the object in the velocity…

Diencephalon: Thalamus, Hypothalamus, Epithalamus

Diencephalon: forms central core of forebrain, surrounded by cerebral hemispheres. Made of 3 paired structures: 1) thalamus, hypothalamus, and epithalamus. Thalamus: egg-shaped (known as inner room) has midline connection called interthalamic adhesion ***EVERY part of the brain that communicated with the cerebral cortex must relay its signals through a nucleus of the thalamus. Hypothalamus: inferior…
