Chapter 10 Plant Ecology
  1. Animals and plants undergo different sexual life cycles.
  2. Seed-bearing plants include Gymnosperms (conifers) and Angiosperms (flowering plants).
    • Angiosperms produce flowers for sexual reproduction.
    • After pollination, double fertilization yields a seed within the ovary.
    • The seed devlops into a fruit that protects and nourishes the embryo and also aids in seed dispersal.
  3. Plants grow at points called meristems.
  4. The above-ground stem may have flowers or leaves attached.
  5. Plant communities undergo ecological succession, interrupted by episodes of disturbance.
