Remember the function of the following plant structures as it relates to the survival of plants in their environments: • Roots – absorb nutrients • Stems – provide support • Leaves – synthesize food • Flowers – attract pollinators and produce seeds for reproduction.

Explain how environmental conditions determine how well plants survive and grow.

Summarize the distinct stages of the life cycle of seed plants.

Explain how the basic properties (texture and capacity to hold water) and components (sand, clay and humus) of soil determine the ability of soil to support the growth and survival of many plants
