Plant Tissues Sequestering Carbon in Forests Human activities are increasing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere exponentially, with potentially catastrophic effects on Earths climate Plants remove CO2 from the atmosphere by photosynthesis and sequester it in their tissues
Carbon locked in molecules of wood and other durable plant tissues can stay out of the atmosphere for centuries Wood Carbon is a major part of cellulose and lignin
that reinforce specialized cells and structures that allow a woody plant to grow tall Organization of the Plant Body
Most flowering plants have aboveground shoots, including stems, leaves, and flowers Most kinds also have below-ground roots Monocots and eudicots differ in tissue organization The Basic Body Plan
Pipelines inside stems conduct water, nutrients, and photosynthetically produced sugars between leaves and roots Roots absorb water and dissolved minerals, and usually serve to anchor the plant; some plants have specialized root cells that store carbohydrates Three Plant Tissue Systems
Ground tissue system Makes up the bulk of the plant body Stores materials, functions in photosynthesis, and structurally supports the plant Vascular tissue system Tubes distribute water and nutrients through a plant body Dermal tissue system
Covers and protects the plant body Includes simple and complex tissues Body Plan of a Tomato Plant Vascular tissues conduct water and solutes
