    1. Can you identify the leaf arrangement if the leaves have fallen off of a branch? Explain your answer.
    2. Compare and contrast the organization of tissues in the shoot of monocots and eudicots. Use drawings as part of your explanation.
    3. How does the shoot protect itself from water loss? What type of biomolecule helps in this process?
    4. Why are the vascular bundles in monocots considered “closed”? What does this tell you about monocot development?
    5. Why were the outer layers of the cortex of the young Tilia stem composed of collenchyma cells? What is the function of this cell type?
    6. How could you tell that those cells were collenchyma and not sclerenchyma cells, as both of these cell types have thickened walls?
