Worksheet on stem system contains various types of questions.

Remember the important information to the answer the questions given below.

Herb: Plants with soft, juicy and often hollow stem.

Shrub: Small bushy plants having harder stems in which branches grow near the base of the shoot.

Tree: Larger plants with tall pillar-like woody trunks (stem) in which branches may develop at any height.

Creeper: Plants with weak stem, which grow along the ground.

Climber: Plants with weak stem, which grow upward by coiling around any firm object as support.

Shoot system: The portion of a flowering plant, growing towards the source of light, bearing stem, leaves, buds, flowers and fruits constitutes the shoot system.

Stem: Rod shaped central axis of the shoot-system.

Nodes: The points on a stem from which leaves grow.

Internode: The portion of a stem in between two nodes.

Apical bud: A tiny outgrowth present at the apical tip of the stem.

Axillary bud: A tiny outgrowth present at the junction of a leaf and a node of a stem.

Terminal bud: A tiny outgrowth present at the apex of each branch.
