More specific sub-standards
Develop and use a model to trace the origin of changes of major plant structures and organs through geological time, in response to major changes in the environment (i.e., development of vascular tissues, change from spores to seed formers).
Construct an explanation about the coevolution of plant morphological and anatomical structures with animals (i.e., pollination), Rhizobium (i.e., nitrogen fixation), and Mycorrhiza (i.e., fungi in rhizosphere).
Use mathematical models to predict the effect of hormones on structural growth of a plant in response to an external stimulus. (Focus on phototropism, geotropism, and thigmotropism).
Ask questions to investigate and provide explanations about the basic plant structures (i.e., major organs, tissues, and cells) in relation to their functions.
Construct an explanation supported by evidence relating plant structures to plant processes (photosynthesis, respiration, transport, growth, reproduction, and dispersal).
