Angiosperms vs. Gymnosperms

Angiosperm plants create flowers for reproducing to draw animals to them so they can pollinate and reproduce.

Gymnosperms produce pine cones which  have seeds in them. There are to types male and female. The male produces the pollen that fertilizes the female cone. After the female cones have been pollinatedthey open and seeds come out and are carried by the wind. They use gliders to make a soft landing on the ground.

Monocots and dicots are both angiosperms who have their seeds enclosed by a fruit.

Gymnosperms are vascular plants which means they produce seeds.

Angiosperms are vascular plants that produce seeds.

Monocots vs.Dicots

Monocots: Vascular bundles of xylem and phloem  are sporadically arranged.

Dicots: Vascular bundles of xylem  and    phloem are precisely arranged in a circular pattern.

Monocots have pedals in threes.

Dicots have pedals in fives.

Monocots have one cotyledon

Dicots have two cotyledons

Monocot roots tend to be fibrous and spread  out to obtain water

Dicots usually have a single taproot    system that goes deeper into the soil.

Monocot leaves are slender blades with     parallel veins.

Dicot plants have branch like veins and a   palmate leaf shape.
