Lesson Worksheet: Plant Tissues Biology
In this worksheet, we will practice describing the structure and function of different tissues found in plants.
What is the difference between a simple and a compound tissue in plants?
- ASimple tissues are formed of unspecialized cells, but compound tissues are formed of fully differentiated cells.
- BSimple tissues are only found in the stem of plants, but compound tissues are found in all parts of the plants.
- CSimple tissues are comprised of one type of cell only, whereas compound tissues are comprised of more than one type of cell.
- DSimple tissues only carry out the basic functions of cell support, whereas compound tissues carry out complex functions like respiration and photosynthesis.
Which of the following best describes a biological tissue?
- AA tissue is a section of an organ that has multiple, varied functions.
- BA tissue is a collection of random cells that perform different, independent functions.
- CA tissue is a group of organs that work together to perform a particular function.
- DA tissue is a group of cells that work together to perform a certain function.
Which of the following is not a type of simple tissue found in plants?
Which type of simple tissue in plants is being outlined in the following description?
It is a living tissue, comprised of rectangular-shaped cells that have thick cellulose walls.
Collenchyma cells have thicker cell walls than some other simple plant tissues. Which of the following is a major function of collenchyma tissue?
- ARegulating water loss in leaves
- BRegulating water uptake in roots
- CProviding support for the plant, especially in growing areas
- DProviding defense against pathogens in the immune response
The diagram provided outlines the basic structure of the xylem. Which of the following best describes the structure of the xylem?
- AThe xylem is a tissue comprised of a long, flexible tube made up of thin-walled, living collenchyma cells.
- BThe xylem is a tissue comprised of multiple, separate, nonliving parenchyma cells stacked on top of each other.
- CThe xylem is a tissue containing a transport system of tubes made up of thick-walled, nonliving sclerenchyma cells.
