monocot
Monocotyledons , commonly referred to as monocots, are flowering plants whose seeds typically contain only one embryonic leaf, or cotyledon
flowers
A flower, sometimes known as a bloom or blossom, is the reproductive structure found in plants that are floral
thigmotropism
Thigmotropism is a directional growth movement of curvature which occurs in response to stimulus of contact
epidermis
The epidermis is the outer of the two layers that make up the skin , the inner layer being the dermis
pressure flow hypothesis
The Pressure Flow Hypothesis, also known as the Mass Flow Hypothesis, is the best-supported theory to explain the movement of sap through the phloem
dicot
The dicotyledons, also known as dicots , were one of the two groups into which all the flowering plants or angiosperms were formerly divided
cuticle
A cuticle /ˈkjuË?tɪkÉ™l/, or cuticula, is any of a variety of tough but flexible, non-mineral outer coverings of an organism, or parts of an organism, that provide protection
shoot system
In botany, shoots consist of stems including their appendages, the leaves and lateral buds, flowering stems and flower buds
budding
Budding is a form of asexual reproduction in which a new organism develops from an outgrowth or bud due to cell division at one particular site
fragmentation
Fragmentation or clonal fragmentation in multicellular or colonial organisms is a form of asexual reproduction or cloning in which an organism is split into fragments
ovary
The ovary is an ovum-producing reproductive organ, often found in pairs in the female as part of the vertebrate female reproductive system
pollen grains
Pollen is a fine to coarse powdery substance comprising pollen grains which are male microgametophytes of seed plants, which produce male gametes
dermal tissue system
The epidermis is a single layer of cells that covers the leaves, flowers, roots and stems of plants
