You'll need to correctly answer at least 26 of the 36 questions below (at least 70%) to progress to the next lesson.
Question #1: Also called allopathic medicine or in some circles traditional medicine, and other forms "alternative medicine".
Even though herbal medicine would technically be traditional and allopathic would be modern. Also recognized as "conventional medicine" in Western cultures. Allopathy focuses on treating the symptoms of diseases chiefly through prescription drugs. This approach utilizes a process of reductionism (focusing on the symptoms exhibited in a part of the organism rather than focusing on the organism as a whole.)
Question #2: Literally meaning the "science of life." A 5,000­year­old organization of medicine originating in India that combines natural therapies with a highly personalized, holistic approach to the treatment of disease.
Question #3: A system of medicine founded in the late 18thcentu plants, minerals and animals. It is based on a theory that "like cures like." Remedies precisely match different symptom pattern profiles of illness to kindle the body’s natural healing process.
Question #4: Natural products, which are not pure composites (i.e., plants or parts of plants, extracts, or exudes).
Question #5: This simply means gathering plants from the wild—from fields, meadows, mountainsides, natural areas, pastures, or anywhere you can legally pick herbs. If you are not on public lands, request permission from the property owner.
Question #6: Never ___________more than you can use, and never deplete a local plant stand.
Question #7: These plants complete their growth in one season.
Question #8: This harvested in both the spring and fall because that’s when the sap of the plant is running.
Question #9: Perrenials are plants that
Question #10: German physician Leonhart Fuchs (1501–1566) was called one of "the three German fathers of botany", who were the other two?
Question #11: Matthias Schleiden's Grundzüge der Wissenschaftlichen Botanik, published in 1842 and in English in 1849 as "Principles of Scientific Botany".
Question #12: Life cycles in which haploid and diploid generations alternate with one another.
Question #13: An organ present in most vascular plants; it consists of a flat lamina (blade) and a petiole (stalk). Many flowering plants have added a pair of small stipules near the bottom of the petiole.
Question #14: Contain only one seed leaf inside the seed coat. It is often only a thin leaf that appears, because the endosperm to feed the new plant is not inside the seed leaf. Grains, (wheat, corn, rice, millet) lilies, daffodils, sugarcane, banana, palm, ginger, onions, bamboo, sugar, cone, palm tree, banana tree, and grass are examples of plants that are called this.
Question #15: Perianth
Question #16: These are the outermost structures of a flower.
Question #17: Animalia - This is the largest having over 1 million named species, fish, humans.
Question #18: Plantae - This includes 350,000 species, trees, grasses.
Question #19: Fungi - This includes 100,000 species like mushrooms and lichen.
Question #20: Protista - 100,000 species are in this group to include green, golden, brown, and red algae, and flagellates.
Question #21: Monera - Contains over 10,000 species, green-bacteria and blue-green algae.
Question #22: Paleobotany- This is the study and understanding of ancient plants.
Question #23: This is how plants can be used as products, like food, clothing and shelter.
Question #24: Chemical regulation - Though both plants and animals generally have hormones and other chemi­cals that regulate specific reactions within the organism, the chemical composition of these hormones differ in the two kingdoms.
Question #25: This is the thin layer of protein and fat that encompasses the cell, but is inside the cell wall. The cell membrane is semipermeable, allowing some materials to cross into the cell and blocking other materials.
Question #26: With oxygen, moisture, sunlight, and the right temperature, you have everything a seed needs to grow. When these conditions are met, the seed will sprout and begin to grow. The roots will begin to push their way through the seed coating and begin attaching and growing into the soil. This process is called?
Question #27: Result when the main root grows down, the principal root, is much larger than the secondary roots. Dandelions are an excellent example of
Question #28: Acaulescent – used to represent stems in plants that appear to be stemless. These stems are just notably tiny, the leaves appear to rise directly out of the ground, for example, some Viola species.
Question #29: Axillary bud- These are tree-like having stems that are woody and often with a single trunk.
Question #30: Arborescent – These are tree-like having stems that are woody and often with a single trunk.
Question #31: Axillary bud – a bud which develops at the spot of attachment of an older leaf with the stem. This point of attachment can give rise to a shoot.
Question #32: Branched – aerial stems are defined as being branched or unbranched
Question #33: Dicot stems with primary growth contain a pith in the center, with vascular bundles making a distinct ring visible while the stem is viewed in cross-section. The outside of the stem is coated with an epidermis, which is comprised of a waterproofing cuticle. The epidermis also may include stomata for gas exchange and multicellular stem hairs called trichomes.
Question #34: Bract: A leaf-like element underneath a flower or on an inflorescence. Bracts are generally shaped differently than other leaves on the plant. They are usually green, but on occasion can be brightly colored and petal-like.
Question #35: Acicular, Falcate and Deltiod are all
Question #36: Pinnate (odd): Leaflets are connected along an extension of the petiole called a rachis; there is a final or terminal leaflet and therefore an odd number of leaflets.
