Want to learn or teach about plant structures in your biology class? Well, you’re gonna need parts of a plant diagram for that. Plant are living organisms belonging to the kingdom Plantae, including trees, herbs, shurbs, bushes, grasses, vines, ferns, mosses, and green algae. In this page, we have collected a handy of printable plant diagram that you can freely download. Follow these diagrams to study more about the structures of a plant.
Flowering plants have four major part types: (1) Stems and branches hold up the leaves and space the leaves out, this helps the plant to get the light it needs. (2) Roots help fix the plant to the soil or to other plants. Roots take in water and nutrients. (3) Leaves make all the food for the plant. They do this by changing light, water and gases into food. This process is called photosynthesis. (4) Flowers contain the male and female parts of the plants. Successful pollination of the flower can result in the production of fruit and seeds. The following plant diagrams will show you the basic structures of a plant.
Roots are designed to pull water and minerals from whatever material the plant sits on. For water plants, the roots may be in the water. For traditional trees, the roots go deep into the soil. Meanwhile, the stems are the trunks and branches. Leaves are self-explanatory. Stems are all about transporting food and water and acting as support structures. Leaves are all about photosynthesis, creating food molecules and absorbing carbon dioxide for the plant. These parts are connected by the vascular system of xylem and phloem that spreads through the entire plant.
Most plants’ food is made in their leaves which are designed to capture sunlight which the plant uses to make food through a process called photosynthesis.
