BOT 360F - Families of Vascular Plants

Quiz 1 20-Sep-11


(1) What parts, in what relationship to each other, make up a plant’s shoot? Where do branches arise? You may find it helpful to make a labeled sketch.

Shoots are made up of stems and the leaves that are attached to them; branches arise on stems, from shoot apical meristems that develop in the axils of leaves (see THIS page, and THIS one).
