Epithelial Tissue- Skin is an epithelial tissue because skin cells form a protective, breathable membrane around muscles and inner tissues.
Polysacchorides: Potatoes contain starch, which is an example of a type of carbohydrate that has thousands of glucose compounds.
Meristem: this flower has many different supporting structures of stems and leaves that allow for new growth.
This leaf has a cuticle layer on the outside of the leaf, a very thin almost waxy-like "skin" on the leaf added for protection.
Flower Ovary: Below the petals in the cup-like structure of this flower is the flower ovary, where fertilization of the plant takes place and reproduction occurs.
These potato bugs have Exoskeletons, bone-like supporting structures outside of their body.
Gymnosperm Leaf- Gymnosperms are conifers, or pine trees, whose seeds are unprotected by an ovary or fruit. The needles are gymnosperm leaves.
Gymnosperm cone- instead of ovaries or fruit, gymnosperms store their seeds in cones.
Lichen- similar to fungi or algae, lichen is a simple, slow-growing plant that is usually flat and flaky that grows in damp places.
Fermentation- Beer is created when wheat ferments, or decomposes and breaks down.
Parasitism- Ivy is a parasite because it takes nourishment from the tree to benefit itself, while hurting and suffocating the tree.
Radial Symmetry- a plant or object that looks the same any way you spin it, just like this clump of hydrangea flowers.
Xylem- the viscous, water-like substance that contains nutrients for the plant, in other words, sap.
Complex Carbohydrates- Cereal is a type of complex carbohydrate formed of a combination of sugar compounds.
Monosaccharides- A type of carbohydrate that is composed of a cyclic structure of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen in a 1:2:1 ratio. The fructose in this nectarine is a type of monosaccharides.
Disaccharides- One last type of carbohydrate. Lactose, found in milk, is an example of a disaccharide, two monosaccharides bonded together.
