Transcript of Comparing Physical Structures of Plants and Animals

Reproductive System
The flower is the reproductive organ of the plant.

The female reproductive organs include the petals and sepals. The stamen is the male reproductive organ.

Flowering plants reproduce by seeds
Non-flowering plants reproduce from spores
Comparing Physical Structures of Plants and Animals
Protective Coverings
Plants have a waxy outer covering that keeps them from losing water.

Animals have a layer of skin.
Respiratory System
The respiratory system functions to take in oxygen.
Some animals exchange gases through their moist skin. Fish have gills. Mammals, birds, and reptiles have lungs.

Transpiration is plant respiration to take in carbon dioxide through the stomata.
Vascular Systems
Plants have vascular systems that include tissue called xylem and phloem.
take water and dissolved minerals to leaves
transports food to the rest of the plant

Animals have a vascular system that includes arteries, veins, and capillaries.
transport oxygen, nutrients, and wastes to and from the body cells
Sensory Organs
The sensory organs for animals are the eyes, ears, nose, and the tongue.

The roots, stems, and leaves of a plant are able to respond to stimuli including: light, touch, and gravity.
Plants are held up by their Stems which give them structural support.

Animals rely on their Skeletal system for support.

An internal skeleton made up of numerous bones is called an endoskeleton.

An exoskeleton is a hard outer covering like a shell.
Support Systems
