Seeds

What are seeds?

Docsity.com

Basic Parts of Seeds

• 1. Embryo • 2. Food Supply • 3. Ovary wall or seed coat

Docsity.com

Germination • Needed for Germ • 1. Temperature • 2. Moisture • 3. Air • 4. Light or absence of it

Docsity.com

Germination • Process • 1. Seed absorbs water • 2. Seeds proteins activated • 3. Radicle (root) emerges

Docsity.com

Germination • 4. Plumule or embryonic shoot emerges • 5. Leaves form and food production begins

Docsity.com

Monocot Seeds • 1. Seed coat-protection • 2. Endosperm- a source of energy • 3. Embryo-miniature plant that has

Docsity.com

Monocot Seeds • 3.Embryo:

– Epicotyle-shoot above cotyledon – Hypocotyl-part of stem below the cotyledon – Radicle- primary root, supports seedling

Docsity.com

Dicot Seeds

• 1. Seed Coat-protection • 2. Embryo miniature plant

Docsity.com

Dicot Seeds • 2. Embryo-

– 2 cotyledons-seed leaves – Epicotyl-true leaves – Hypocotyl-first stem, pulls seed upward – Radicle-forms roots

Docsity.com

Monocot Germination • 1. Seed swells • 2. Radicle grows down • 3. First internode and epicotyl grows upward

Docsity.com

Monocot Germination • 4. New leaves form and food production

starts • 5. New root system develops • 6. Temporary root system ceases to function

and dies

Docsity.com

Dicot Germination • 1. Seed swells • 2. Radicle grows down • 3. Hypocotyl forms arch that breaks soil

surface

Docsity.com

Dicot Germination

• 4. Hypocotyl reaches light and straightens up • 5. Cotyledons turn green and make food • 6. As new leaves develop, cotyledons dry up

and fall off
