Answers:The dicot root contains the xylem in the center forming an X. The phloem is located in the angles of the X. The dicot stem contains the xylem and phloem forming a circular bundle. The bundles are arranged in a circle. The xylem is located on the inner part of the circles and the phloem on the outside of them.

Question:I need to do a drawing of a monocot with two modifications...either one stem and one leaf, or one leaf and one root etc. I need to do the same with a dicot. But so far I can't find a plant with more than one modification. Does anyone know any??

Answers:Pumpkins are dicot, their leaves are prickly as a 'defense mechanism' to ward of any creature that might want to eat the fruit. They tend to grow and extend, the roots grow into whatever surface it can and has vines that coil around surrounding environment. ( i know this because we have pumpkins growing in the backyard and the roots are wrapped around our porch swing) You could draw a close up of a pumpkin leaf, and the way the roots grow. Here are some other fun facts that might help: Bulbs In some monocots, leaf bases grow to form bulbs, underground organs used for food storage. They can be identified from the series of leaf bases fitting inside each other, with a central shoot apical meristem. Stem Tubers In some dicotyledon plants, stems grow downwards into the soil and sections of them grow into stem tubers, also used for food storage. They are identified as their vascular bundles are arranged in rings reminiscent of stem bundles. Storage Roots These roots are swollen with stores of food, identified by the central location of vascular tissue. Tendrils These narrow outgrowths from leaves rotate through the air until they touch a solid support to which they attach, allowing the plant to climb upward


Answers:A fruit is a mature, or ripened, ovary that usually contains seeds. In contrast, a vegetable can consist of leaves (lettuce, cabbage), leaf petioles (celery), specialized leaves (onions), stems (white potato), stems and roots (beets), flowers and their peduncles (broccoli), flower buds (globe artichokes) and or other parts of the plant. A fruit is by definition just the ovary part of a flower, therefore all fruits come exclusively from flowering plants.

Question:The stained material in the cortex of a dicot herbaceous root is starch. Why is it found in the root and how DID IT GET THERE? Thanks!

Answers:Roots often serve as storage organs for the carbohydrates produced during photosynthesis. Sugars are transported to the root and then converted into starch. It keeps the concentrations gradient of sugars low in the root so that transport of liquids continues throughout the plant.

The Square Root of Minus One :Subtract from the size of your room the size of your cupboard. Minus one cupboard. The sides of the cupboard measure: The square root of minus one. This is supposed to be an "imaginary" number because we supposedly can't draw a practical diagram of it or find a practical example. But we can. So there. Soundtrack made in VSThost.
