After watching these videos go back to your notes and re-answer the questions from the “THINK!” section on another piece of paper. Then write a paragraph detailing the pros and cons of stem cell use and decide whether you are for or against their use and why (use evidence to explain why).
Below are two links that look closer at Cell Specialization & Differentiation. The first from Khan Academy and the second from Bozeman Science.
I would like the emphasize the role structure or form plays in function and vice versa. As multicellular organisms evolve, their cells, tissues, organs, etc. become increasingly efficient at doing particular tasks and as such this specialization causes a direct link between form and function that shouldn’t be overlooked. It shouldn’t be too surprising that eukaryotes have many organelles and prokaryotes have fewer. Most eukaryotes are multicellular and most prokaryotes are unicellular.
The following videos do a good job outlining the different structures of the plant. The young man who is going over the structure pronounces structures very differently in some cases from what we have been using in class. Knowing all of the tissues will help you understand how they perform their specific functions. Tissues of note include: vascular tissue, dermal tissue, ground tissue, and meristematic tissue.
