Plant Growth and Development

Across
In asexual reproduction, the steps a cell undertakes to duplicate and divide a complete set of chromosomes.
A compound that supplies energy to plant cells as part of the Kreb's cycle of respiration.
A plant pigment that reflects yellow, orange, and red light and assists in capturing light energy.
The process in which a single cell divides to form two daughter cells and the cell plate is formed.
The relationship where one allele is only expressed when the second, dominant allele is not present.
One of a number of variant forms of the same gene.
The process in which water is pulled upward from the roots through xylem cells and released into the air in a gaseous state.
The process by which plants capture energy from the sun to convert simple molecules of carbon dioxide and water into complex carbohydrate molecules that can be used by plants and animals as sources of energy and building blocks for other molecules.
The aqueous space outside the stacks of thylakoids.
A stack of thylakoid disks found within the chloroplast.
A cell that contains two complete sets of chromosomes.
The process in which glucose combines with oxygen to produce energy in a form that can be used by plants.

A type of tissue mutation that occurs in somatic cells.
A cellular membrane that is permeable to water, but impermeable to ions because of their charge.
A type of mutation that allows two genetically distinct tissues to coexist.
A disc-shaped sac surrounded by membranes on which the light reactions of photosynthesis take place.
A green pigment located in the chloroplasts of plant cells that is a receptor of light energy in the red and blue wavelengths.
The process in which the male gamete combines with the female gamete to create a genetically unique organism.
Specific sequences of nucleotide pairs on a DNA molecule that hold the information to build and maintain cellular processes and pass genetic traits to offspring.

The entire set of chromosomes of a plant.
The relationship between one allele that is expressed over a second allele.
The pressure within a plant cell that helps provide rigidity and support to plant structures.
A property of water in which hydrogen bonding between adjacent water molecules allows the water to be pulled upward through the plant.
