115163. Which cell division helps to maintain the chromosome number of a species?

Answer: Meiosis

115164. What is MITOSIS?

Answer: It is a process of cell division which results in the production of 2 daughter cells from a single parent cell. The daughter cells are identical to one another and also to the original parent cell


Answer: Prophase 1) Formation and doubling of chromosomes 2) Break down of nuclear envelope 3) Disappearance of nucleolus 4) Movement of centrioles to opposite poles Metaphase 1) Chromosomes lie at the equator 2) Formation of spindle fibers 3) Spindle fibers get attached to the chromosomes. Anaphase 1) Separation of newly formed chromosomes towards opposite poles Telophase 1) Chromosomes elongate and overlap to form chromatin 2) Nucleolus begins to reappear 3) Nuclear envelope forms around each group of

115192. MICRO ELEMENTS means?

Answer: The elements which are required by plants in small amounts are called micro - elements. Eg. Mn; Zn; B; Cu; Mo & Cl. They are involved in the functioning of enzymes.

115197. Name the two major steps in photosynthesis?

Answer: (1) Light reaction; (2) Dark reaction

115198. The splitting of water (photolysis) in photosynthesis occurs in which step?

Answer: Light reaction

115199. Explain PHOTOSYNTHESIS?

Answer: It is the process of manufacture of organic compounds from CO2 and H2O in the presence of sunlight as a source of energy. The first step of photosynthesis is light reaction which occurs in the grana of chloroplast. The major process in this step are (1) Photolysis of water and evolution of O2 (2) Photophosphorylation. It is the process of ATP formation from ADP using light energy. The second step is dark reaction; It occurs in stroma of chroloplast. Here CO2 is reduced to carbohydrates; using AT

115200. Explain ANTI TRANSPIRANTS?

Answer: About 98% of water absorbed by plants on land is evaporated from the aerial parts; through transpiration. Due to this the plant has to face several problems. So the rate of transpiration must to reduced. For this certain substances are used to reduce the rate of transpiration. These are known as antitranspirants. eg : colourless plastics; silicone oils; phenyl mercuric acetate
