The Plant Kingdom is made up of all different kinds of plants. Most plants are autotrophs which means that they make their own food.
Plants use photosynthesis to make their own food. Plants are multi-cellular which means that they have more than one cell.
Cells that are found inside plants are grouped together when they have similar functions and they make tissues.
The plant cell wall separates the plant from the environment. The cell wall of a plant is made of cellulose and this gives the plant a rigid feeling.
The cell wall has chloroplast, which is where food is made. The vacuole is a sack like area where food and waste are stored.
When the vacuole does not get enough water, the plant will wilt.
Plants are thought to have all lived under water at some point, but this is how it is today. In order for plants to survive, plants have to have water and be able to keep the water.
Plants have a layer that is called a cuticle that covers the leaves so that water does not leak out of the plant.
Plants have tubes inside of them so that they can transport water and nutrients to all of the vascular tubes.
The vascular tubes also help to support the plant and help them to stand and be strong.
Plants reproduce by sexual reproduction. This means that the plants offspring will look like the parent plant.
Plants are usually grouped in to two different groups, vascular and non-vascular. Non-vascular plants are plants that do not have tubes to transport water.
Non-vascular plants usually grow close to the ground and they do not have roots. Non-vascular plants get water from absorbing the water in their surroundings.
Most non-vascular plants live in moist and shaded places such as moss.
Vascular plants have vascular tubes that help to transport water to and from all parts of the plant. Vascular plants can get water from the soil because of their roots.
Vascular plants can grow tall because their vascular tubes help to protect them and keep them from falling over.
There are three different types of vascular plants: seedless vascular plants which reproduce by making spores, gymnosperms which reproduce by spreading seeds, and angiosperms which produce by the seeds in their fruit.
