A plant which has its seeds inclosed in a pericarp. Contrasted with gymnosperm.
The large taxonomic classification of flowering plants, including all the cereals.
a division of vascular plants with ovules and seeds enclosed in an ovary
Any seed plant whose seeds are surrounded by the mature ovary or fruit
(an´ jee oh spurm) [Gr. angion: vessel + sperma: seed] • One of the flowering plants; literally, one whose seed is carried in a "vessel," which is the fruit. (See fruit.)
Plant whose seeds are enclosed within an ovary. Flowering plants.
A division of the plant kingdom that includes all flowering plants, i.e. vascular plants in which double fertilization occurs resulting in development of fruit containing seeds. Divided into two major groups, monocotyledons and dicotyledons
Any of a class of vascular plants with the seeds in a closed ovary.
plants having seeds in a closed ovary
a seed-bearing plant whose seeds are borne in a mature ovary (fruit) and are divided into two broad classes based on the number of cotyledons or seed leaves that generally store or absorb food
A plant whose seeds are borne within an ovary (fruit).
The flowering plants, one of five phyla of seed plants.
Any plant that is a member of the class Angiospermae, in which the seeds are enclosed in an ovary. Each member of the class is either a monocotyledon (grasses, tulips) or a dicotyledon (apple, primrose).
Flowering plants (seeds enclosed in an ovary - flowering plant).
A flowering plant whose seeds are enclosed in an ovary that ripens into a fruit. Angiosperms are divided into: monocotyledons and dicotyledons. Compare angiosperm with gymnosperm.
Belonging to the class of plants having seeds enclosed in an overlay. Within this class, the subclass dicotyledons includes all hardwood trees. A.W.I. - Architectural Woodwork Institute 1952 Isaac Newton Square Reston, VA 20190
(pronounced AN-jee-oh-sperm) Angiosperms (meaning "covered seed") are flowering plants. They produce seeds enclosed in fruit (an ovary). They are the dominant type of plant today; there are over 250,000 species. Their flowers are used in reproduction. Angiosperms evolved about 145 million years ago, during the late Jurassic period, and were eaten by dinosaurs. They became the dominant land plants about 100 million years ago (edging out conifers, a type of gymnosperm). Angiosperms are divided into the monocots (like corn) and dicots (like beans).
AN-gee-o-sperm Flowering plant. 492
A flowering plant that has its seed enclosed in an ovary.
A vascular flowering plant in which seeds are enclosed inside protective ovaries, such as fruit or flowers. Angiosperms can be monocots or dicots.
plants that have an enclosed seed. Examples: all flowering plants, including many hardwood trees, such as maples and oaks.
a group of plants whose seeds are borne within a matured ovary
a seed-bearing plant whose ovules, and hence seeds, develop within an enclosed ovary. cf. gymnosperm.
A seed-bearing plant with ovules, and hence seeds, developing within an ovary. Parent Term: Plant_groups Plural: Angiospermae Synonyms: Flowering plant Difficulty Level
A flowering plant which has the capability of reproducing by seed.
Flowering plant producing a covered seed.
A plant that has true flowers and bears its seeds in fruits. In temperate zones, many angiosperms are deciduous trees, while in tropical zones, many are evergreen trees. Examples include oaks, willows, maples and birches.
The 'flowering plants', the most recent group of plants to evolve. These plants have reduced their alternation of generations to the production of pollen (male gametophyte) and ovules (female gametophyte retained by the parent plant). Pollen is released and is carried to the female either by the wind or a pollinator such as an insect. Flowers have evolved to aid in wind dispersal or to attract pollinators to collect and distribute pollen. Most of the plants we see around are angiosperms; their reproduction and adaptability have made them a huge success.
Flowering plant that reproduces sexually with seeds [LCOTE
a flowering plant which has its seeds enclosed within an ovary. gymnosperms hold their seed in cones.They originated during the Cretaceous.
n. A group of plants that produce seeds enclosed within an ovary, which may mature into a fruit; flowering plants.
A plant whose ovules are enclosed in an ovary; a flowering plant. cf. Gymnosperm nhydrous Without water, especially water of crystallization. nhydrous Ammonia A nitrogen fertiliser that is applied as a pressurised liquid into the soil where it combines with water to release the nitrogen. It needs special equipment and care in handling. See http://www.extension.umn.edu/distribution/cropsystems/DC2326.html
A flowering plant. The term refers to the fact that the seeds are enclosed within an ovary which matures into a fruit. The complement of gymnosperm.
