THE BIOLOGY OF PLANTS
The Biology of Plants
We learn quite a bit about our own biology - either at school, our life experiences themselves or from bits gleaned over the years. But how much do you really know about PLANT biology? The earth needs these plants desperately, but why? You will get your answer when you take our quiz!

Which part of the plant makes the food the plant lives on? ~ Stem ~ Roots ~ Leaves ~ Flowers

What is the function of the stem? ~ To support the root system ~ To convert sunlight into nutrients ~ To transport water and minerals through the plant

True or False: All seeds have a hard outer shell to protect the soft insides. ~ False ~ True

What makes leaves green? ~ Oxygen ~ Chlorophyll ~ Carbon Dioxide ~ Hydrogen

Plants have tiny holes in their leaves through which they take carbon dioxide. What are these called? ~ Pricks ~ Gills ~ Stomata ~ Pores

Energy from the sun helps a plant turn water and carbon dioxide into what? ~ Glucose ~ Hydrogen ~ Protein ~ Fat

True or False: There are no natural black flowers or blossoms anywhere on Earth. ~ False ~ True

What is the major difference, that can immediately be seen, between plant cells and animal cells? ~ Animals have a cell membrane ~ Animals have a cell wall ~ Plants have a cell membrane ~ Plants have a cell wall

After a plant completes the process of photosynthesis, what gas is released? ~ Ozone ~ Carbon Dioxide ~ Oxygen ~ Hydrogen

From where does a plant release oxygen? ~ From its stems ~ From its leaves ~ From all parts ~ From its roots

Germination is what a plant goes through when it is.... ~ Maturing to adulthood ~ Grows flowers ~ Still a seed ~ In a freezing surrounding

What is the first part of a plant to emerge from a seed? ~ Roots ~ Leaves ~ Branches ~ Stem

True or False: All plants produce oxygen. ~ False ~ True
