Types of Plants

Monocot vs. Dicot

Angiosperm vs. Gymnosperm

Types of Plants

By: Katia Enriquez

Angiosperm   An angiosperm plant is a type of plant that makes flowers as a way of reproduction.  Then once a flower becomes a fruit its job is to trick an animal into eating it so that is can transport and fertilize the seeds inside it to keep the cycle going. That is why angiosperms depend on animals for dispersal  A way to tell if a plant is a angiosperm is by looking at the leaves, the leaves of an angiosperm change color in the autumn and return every spring.

Gymnosperm   A gymnosperm plant is a type of plant that makes pine cones as a way of reproduction and use the wind as a way of dispersal.  They also use the wind as a way to assist in pollinating. A gymnosperm also has leaves the are in the shape of needles that stay green all year long. You actually see a gymnosperm seed gliding through the air.

Similarities and Differences    A difference that the two have are that they have different methods of reproduction. Gymnosperms make pine cones, and angiosperms make flowers and fruits. They also have different methods of dispersal, an angiosperm needs animals for dispersal while a gymnosperm needs the wind.  A similarity that the two have are that, they both use seeds for reproduction.

Monocot   A monocot is a plant with leaves that have parallel veins and has a slender blade shape. The monocot flower has 3 petals and fibrous roots. A monocots seeds characteristics include a seed coat, endosperm, epicotyl, radicle, hypocotyl, and one cotyledon. An examples of a monocot seed is a corn seed

Dicot   A dicot is a plant with leaves that have branch like veins and a palmate leaf shape. The dicot flower also has 5 petals. A dicot also has taproots. A dicots seeds characteristics include a seed coat, endosperm, epicolti, hypocotyl, radicle, and two cotyledons. An example of a gymnosperm seed is a bean seed.

Similarities and Differences   A difference that the two have is the number of cotyledons that one has depending on rather it is one or two. Another difference is how many leaves one get when they germinate, it could be either one or two leaves. One last difference is that they have two different types of roots. A similarity that they have is that they both have seeds and include the same parts.

The pictures that I have for an angiosperm plant are, a flower, examples of pollinators that are pollinating flowers, the leaves changing its color, and an example of an angiosperm fruit. I used these photos to give a better visual of the cycle of an angiosperm plant and give you a closer look at the flower and also show examples.

The pictures that I have for a gymnosperm are, a male and female pine cones, a seed, and an example of a gymnosperm plant. I used these photos to give a close look at the seed and examples of the plant and a part of the reproduction.

The photos I have are a monocot leaf, the roots of a monocot, and a monocot and dicot seed
