Advanced Biology Class Studies Plants

Submitted by CHS Sophomore, Abigail Gardner

In biology, we did a plant anatomy lab. In this lab we used microscopes to look at slides of roots, stems
and leaves. On each slide, there was a monocot and a dicot version of the three parts we examined.
Through this lab we learned what to look for in order to determine if it was a dicot or monocot. In roots,
you can determine the difference between the shape of the xylem. In a dicot root, the xylem will form
the shape of a cross or an x all bunched together which can be portrayed below.
