Plant basics. Exploring botany -- Peering at plant cells -- Identifying plant tissues -- Vegetative structures: stems, roots, and leaves -- Reproductive structures: spores, seeds, cones, flowers, and fruits -- The living plant: plant physiology. Metabolism: how living things get energy and matter -- Photosynthesis: making sugar from scratch -- Cellular respiration: making your cake and eating it too -- Moving materials through plants -- Regulating plant growth and development -- Making more plants: plant reproduction and genetics. Greening the earth: plant reproduction -- Passing plant characteristics to the next generation -- The wide, wonderful world of plant biodiversity. Changing with the times: evolution and adaptation -- The tree of life: showing the relationships between living things -- Examining the forest floor: bryophytes and seedless vascular plants -- Their seeds are naked: gymnosperms -- Say it with flowers: angiosperms -- Plants and people. Making connections with plant ecology -- Altering plants by using biotechnology -- Thriving on plants in everyday life
