Seed-Producing Plants, spermopsids, opens with a presentation of the transport system and reproductive strategies of these plants, which are key topics for making distinctions among the spermopsids. It then focuses specifically on gymnosperms and angiosperms. The consideration of angiosperms delves into the differences between monocots and dicots. It concludes with an ecological consideration of these plants. The unit is supported by original artwork and labeled diagrams and contains many questions such as short answer and multiple choice that are linked to their answers for self-testing. It also includes sets of written answer questions to help build one’s understanding of the concepts presented. The unit features an interactive Taxonomic Guide and interactive Glossary with hundreds of contextually explained terms.
Seed-Producing Plants is extracted from Biology 11 Study Guide, which is the fourth edition of a student study guide written to match the curriculum of British Columbia. The concepts presented are applicable to the biology curricula of other educational jurisdictions as well.
