Plants usually: absorb water/ nutrients and Photosynthesis (Ie: absorb sunlight). The characteristics of plants include that they are multi-cellular,they have cell walls, produce their own food, obtain energy fromthe sun and they contain chlorophyll. The following are the characteristics of plants …- Chloroplasts with chlorophyll a and b and carotenoids Cellulose walls Formation of cell plate during division Starch used for carbohydrate storage Life Cycle-sporic meoisis or haplodiplonic or alteration ofgenerations Diploid stage sporophyte and haploid stage gametophyte aremulticellular Dominant stage varies between groups - primitive plants gametophyteis dominant and in advanced plants sporophyte is dominant Primitive plants have poorly developed systems for conduction offluids (non-vascular plants) and advanced plants (vascular plants)have well developed specialized tissues (xylem and phloem) forconduction of food and water.

The characteristics of a plant is that it contains a green pigment called chlorophyll and it can photosynthesize.
all plants are different sizes. and there are vascular and nonvascular plants and some plants are rooted down and others are not
Carnivorous means feeding on animals. Wiki has an excellent entry on the subject and it also just so happens to be a subject I did a report on in school because I couldn't believe that Earth actually had plants that "eat meat". I hope this helps (here's the link or do a search for "carnivorous… plants". See related link: . ( Full Answer )
Some characteristics of a plant was they make their own food usingthe process of photosynthesis. All plants grow, develop, andreproduce. They have roots that keep them rooted in the ground. Torelease energy and get rid of body was they have respire. They havea slowly reaction to changes.
yes, they are. however they can be left inside with no sunlight but wont stand up.
See the related link for a picture of what is a type of giant pitcher plant, believed to be the largest meat-eating flora in the world. It is green and red and has a stem that can grow up to 4ft long, and it can only be found high on the slopes of Mount Victoria in the Phillipines.
The plants that are currently listed as carnivorous are carnivorousbecause the soil in which they live in is too poor in nutrients tosustain them for long. They have adapted through evolution to trapand "digest" living organisms to completely sustain them. Theyrequire certain substances in the insec…ts around them (such aspotassium) that are not present in the soil to produce flowers,which take quite a bit of energy to produce. ( Full Answer )
well if its a plant then its in the plant kingdom, if it isn't then its not. chloroplasts.
The distinct characteristics of plants is the way of their absorbing the energy(food)it is called photosynthesis is a kind of METABOLISM
In terms of size, the largest carnivorous plants are in the genera Nepenthes and Triphyophyllum . The Nepenthesrajah species is one of the largest and can eat frogs, geckos,skinks, and even mice. One of the most amazing carnivorous plants and well known is theVenus flytrap.
The plants eat small insects and animals because the soil they grow in do not provide the specific amount of nutrients for plants to grow well. However, they do carry out photosynthesis. It is just their nature that they can only grow in the soil with less nutrients because they have another source …of consuming nutrients, if they consumed the specific amount of nutrients as well as nutrients from their prey they would not be able to absorb all the nutrients and this source of consuming small insects would be of no use. ( Full Answer )
Yes. Venus flytraps are a prime example of floral carnivory, as are drosera, triphoyophyllum, nepenthes, aldrovanda, species of ibicella, etc. There are also many near carnivorous plants, such as certain types of thistle, which are reputed, but not proven.. A common mistake is to call the plants in…sectivorous, however, as the plants are capable of digesting many more things other than insects (eg: mollusks such as slugs, avians such as humming birds, arachnids such as spiders, and mammals such as small mice) their proper title is "carnivorous plant". ( Full Answer )
a characteristic of a carnivore is that they eat meat not herbs and plants like herbivores! And some carnivores will have sharp teeth for tearing off meat.. some will have claws for hunting and taking down prey!
A carnivorous (meat eating) plant is a plant that eats smallanimals such as flies and insects. Venus fly traps and Pitcherplants are such plants. Scientists in the UK have also recentlydiscovered a mammal-eating plant. This plant, apparently a veryrare giant pitcher plant, is believed to be the larg…est meat-eatingflora in the world. It is green and red and has a stem that cangrow up to 4ft long, and it can only be found high on the slopes ofMount Victoria in the Phillipines. It eats whole rats. A common mistake is to call the plants insectivorous, however, asthe plants are capable of digesting many more things other thaninsects (eg: mollusks such as slugs, avians such as humming birds,arachnids such as spiders, and mammals such as small mice) theirproper title is "carnivorous plant".

Although plants are very diverse, all plants have these basic characteristics - multicellular - eukaryotic - autotrophic - alternative generations in life cycle - photosynthetic by using chlorophylls a and b - have a cell wall made of cellulose
Venus fly trap, Sun dew, pitcher plant and you know even waterlily starts its life by eat an insect.
Venus fly traps , one type of carnivorous plant, lives in the Eastern USA. They are native to North and South Carolina. You can find them in Myrtle Beach.
The types of carnivorous plants are Nepenthes (tropical pitcher plants), Sarracenia (pitcher plants), Dionaea (venus fly traps), Pinguicula (butterworts), Utricularia (bladderworts), Aldrovanda (waterwheel plants), Drosera (sundews), Cephalotus (australian pitcher plants), Heliamphora (sun pitcher p…lants) and Genlisea (corkscrew plants). Roridula is carnivorous at one point in it's life, mostly before flowering. ( Full Answer )
No, however they tend to grow in harsh inviorments, such as the Venis Fly trap i have one of my own doesnt need much water and can Evan grow in sand mine is good for musqiutoes
typically not, but they do to help digest their food and they also chew on plants to clean their teeth. I would look into this more if I were you :)
Its hard to know,people are discovering new things every day so you cant know for sure.
Venus fly traps and pitcher plants eat bugs and flys, making them carnivorous plants. No. Plants are producers.
None. Carnivores are meat-eaters. Most will also eat a few plants. An animal that eats only plants is a herbivore. Those which eat both are omnivores.
Yes, however some species and even some genus are under speculation as to whether they do or do not use their own digestive enzymes in the process of digestion. But for the most part, yes, they are carnivorous. Some may even be able to digest vegetable matter through their traps.
Yes. Here is a map with the range of all species of pitcher plants in America: (see link) Note the tiny section of Rhode island that is white.
Currently, there is no known carnivorous plant that is lethal to humans. Although the chemicals inside the plant may make you feel nauseated, you are perfectly safe. If, however, you ate the gullet of a filled pitcher plant, you would be ingesting many microscopic pathogens that could be harmful t…o your body. Medical assistance is advised in this case. Carnivorous plants that are known to be eaten are Drosera rotundifolia, D. anglica, and D. intermedia. Several recipes regarding these plants are known in the proto-medicinal circles, along with a special liquor made from D. rotundifolia formulated by the Italians. The genus Nepenthes is known (N. bicalcarata) to be used as rice cookers. The pitcher is snipped off, rice put inside, and cooked in a steamer. It is said that the rice has a special taste when cooked this way. ( Full Answer )
The great variety of plants and animals represents the diversity ofnature. There are plants and animals on Earth that fill everyavailable survivable niche.
Same place where normal plants undergo photosynthesis: the leaves. Carnivorous plants live in an environment with a poor soil, and needs an additional sustenance such as potassium or nitrogen that are not adequately present in the soil.
Carnivores are meat eaters, not plant eaters, but they indirectly obtain their food from plants because they each other animals that do get their food from plants.
i think that enable seed plants to live in a wide variety of environment. because all plants need water so that they can live
It is an intellectual property statute in the United States. The PVPA gives breeders up to 25 years of exclusive control over new, distinct, uniform, and stable sexually reproduced or tuber propagated plant varieties. *Wikipedia
Tomatoes, like other foods are subject to ones taste buds. However many people will tell you that an heirloom tomato plant has much more flavor than say a hybrid variety. Plant a few different varieties for yourself and you will soon determine which ones you like the best.
somewhere on earth,in the jungle if u think you've got a better answer thn ANSWER IT!
Sharp teeth. Evolution has given sharp teeth to most carnivores in order to make their eating habits more facile to occur.
It depends which species it is. Intermediate plants like sarracenia, dionaea, some drosera, darlingtonia, and some pinguicula need to be stratified and sown on spaghnum moss. Tropical species like nepenthes should be sown on wet spaghnum. Always water with distilled water, the chlorine in tap water …will kill them. ( Full Answer )
A carnivore is a meat eater. A herbivore eats plants. Think of it like this: "Carn" means meat, and "herb" means plant (Latin).
No, Carnivorous plants are plants no matter what! They don't think to catch prey, they do it naturally. If they had a heart, they would be animals!
no- it is a parasite. It smells as it does to attract insects to its flower for pollination purposes.
Most carnivorous plants live in areas with poor soil, like a bog or rainforest, and therefore cannot rely on the soil to provide them with all the nutrients they need. They will eat animals and extract nutrients from them to make up for the low nutrient content of the soil. Carnivorous plants are qu…ite diverse, but the main adaptations are a trapping mechanism and digestive enzymes. Trapping mechanisms can be passive, like the Sarracenia pitcher plants which just wait for an insect to fall into the pitcher by chance, or active like a Venus fly trap which springs closed when an insect triggers it. The plant has specialized digestive enzymes to break down the animal and the nutrients derived from it are absorbed. ( Full Answer )
There are different carnivorous plants. Both the venus flytrap and the pitcher plant are examples of these. They look very different.
Polyploid plants are often larger and have other accentuated characteristics, making them useful in agriculture (bigger seeds) and horticulture (larger flowers) Polyploidy may also cause seedless fruits which is a commercial benefit (banana, seedless watermelons, seedless grapes)
Since these plants kill and digest the insect proteins in their specialized structures, these are called insectivorous or carnivorus plants. Utricularia, Drosera and napenthes etc are some of the examples of these plants.
I am only aware that the pitchers of the Tropical Pitcher Plant are edible,as being a delicacy and popular way of holding and cooking rice is inside of these pitchers in Southeast Asia and Malaysia.
No they cant. Only in the movie/ play "The Little Shop of Horrors" does Audrey eat people :)
Animals have a variety of names, even within species...for example, snakes have a vast variety of different names, even though they are all still reptiles. Theres anphibions and mammals. Humans are mammals, which are animals which give birth to live young, e.g. crocodiles lay eggs, so is NOT a mamma…l. ( Full Answer )
First, u must make sure that both the flowers you picked up are atthe stage of receptive, meaning the ovule can accept the pollen forfertilization. Secondly, u decide which of the two to be the male and femalesource of the germplasm. Roses are hermaphrodite plant, meaningboth sexes, male and female… organs are present on the same flower. Having decided that, u remove the pollen of the flower that udecided to be the female. This is done before the flower anthesis,i.e. before the gyneseum or the ovule matured. Cover the flowerwith paper or cloth. As for the other flower which u had decided to be the male flower,leave it as it is. When the pollen is matured, pick them up and inoculate them on thestigma of the female flower. If the base of the female flower is swelling, it means that yourcross is successful. It it drops, your cross is a failure. In plant breeding, this cross is called controlled crossing. Otherwise, what u do is, wait until the two flower about to open,usually very early in the morning, just rub the two flowerstogether and hopefully there will be some pollen crossing into theother flower. However, u may expect some 'selfing' or selfpollination to occurred as well. Both flowers will develop intofruits with some seeds inside them. What u do next is, let the two fruits develop, harvest them whenthey are ripe, and grow the seeds. When the seedling matured, and baring flowers, u can see a lot ofvariation among the progenies, ie through selfing and crosspollination. Good luck. ( Full Answer )
The plant cells being totepotent can reproduce in a variety of ways, such as by sexual, asexual and vegetative means.
The fictional plant Triffid is known to be gigantic and has the capability to move about. This plant is also known to be venomous, carnivorous, and capable of killing humans.
If all individuals in a species (peas) are not exactly clones of each other but have small variations in the genes (traits), some will do better when the environment changes (drought). These traits will be "favored" over other traits. More individuals will be found with the trait. A new variety of p…eas will be found. ( Full Answer )
