REVIEW QUESTIONS – For Quiz #6 “Flower Morphology”

1.   Given a fresh flowering plant specimen of the family Liliaceae with vegetative and
     reproductive structures intact you should be able to complete the following with the aid of a
     “Plant Morphology Worksheet” [see ]
     a.   Perform a dissection as necessary to complete the “Worksheet” without the aid of text,
          references or any explanations/definitions of the terminology used on the “Worksheet.”
     b.   Include in your responses (a.) a floral formula.
     c.   Sketch a floral diagram beginning with the gynoecium and using the conventional
          symbols illustrated in Chapter 10.

2.   Given a familiar flower (e.g. Lilium, Alstroemeria, or Antirrhinum), be able to write a floral
     formula or floral diagram for the flower. Or, if the “unknown” specimen is described on
     your quiz, translate the information into floral formula or diageam.

3.   Given a floral formula of an unidentified flowering plant species, interpret the formula using
     appropriate terminology.

4.   Given a floral diagram of an unidentified flowering plant species, interpret the diagram using
     appropriate terminology.

5.   Review the terminology which is used to refer to floral structures. Then, represent the

     Note: Tuesday in Lecture, we will complete the discussion of Floral Morphology as
     addressed in Chapter 10, pages 143-155. Then, please read pp. 155-158, “Inflorescences.”
     We will reserve a study of “Fruits” for a later time. The quiz will not include either of these
     two subjects.
