A plant whose seeds divide into two seed lobes, or cotyledons, in germinating.
( dye-cottle- ee-don) [Gk. di, double, two + kotyledon, a cup-shaped hollow] A member of the class of flowering plants having two seed leaves, or cotyledons, among other distinguishing features; often abbreviated as dicot.
A plant with two cotyledons or seed leaves, netted leaf venation, and branched tap roots. Floral parts occur in groups of 4 or 5.
a flowering plant whose embryo has two (rarely more) cotyledons (seed leaves). cf. monocotyledon.
Flowering plant with two 'seed leaves' on seedling plants
Also called dicot. An angiosperm which has two cotyledons (seed leaves). Mature dicotyledons develop leaves with a branching network of veins, in contrast to monocotyledons which normally have parallel veins. African Violets are dicotyledons.
A type of plant that has two embryonic leaves within the seed. More than three-quarters of all flowering plants are dicotyledons.
Major subdivision of the angiosperm containing the great majority of flowering plants, characterized by the presence of two seed leaves, or cotyledon in the embryo, which is usually surrounded by an endosperm. They generally have broad leaves with netlike veins.
plants with two seed leaves (usually broadleaf plants)
flowering plant with two cotyledons; the stem grows by deposit on its outside
The majority of flowering plants in which the leaf veins are typically branched.
Plant with two leaves at germination
Flowering plants are separated into two classes: Magnoliopsida (dicotyledons) and Liliopsida (monocotyledons). All "dicots" are in the class Magnoliopsida and generally have 2 cotyledons (seed leaves that provide nourishment to the developing seedling), netted veins and flower parts in 4 or 5s.
a plant of one of the two major groups of flowering plants (Angiosperms), characterised by a seed with two seed leaves (cotyledons)
A plant having two cotyledons or seed leaves. (dicotyledonous, adj.) Compare with monocotyledon.
A plant whose embryo has two cotyledons; a dicot.
One of the classes of flowering plants, characterized by the presence of two seed leaves in the young plant, and by net-veined, often broad leaves, in mature plants. Includes deciduous trees.
di kot i le don One of two great divisions of Angiosperms, having two seed leaves or cotyledons (Greek di- twice, and cotyledon)
A broad category of plant: those with two seedling Ivs; (all plants in this book apart from the monocots and ferns). Parent Term: Plant_types Difficulty Level
A member of one of the two classes of flowering plants, distinguished by having seedlings with usually a pair of seedling leaves (cotyledons) and commonly with floral parts in fours or fives, leaves with net venation and ability to form wood by secondary (cambial) cell division within the tissues.
Those flowering plants with a pair of first leaves or cotyledons at germination.
A subclass of the flowering plants ( Angiosperms). Named for having two seed leaves ( cotyledons) they tend to have broad leaves, netlike veins in the leaves, flower parts usually in fours or fives, a ring of primary vascular bundles in the stem, and a taproot system. Also known as Dicot. Most North Country flowering plants are dicots. See Monocotyledon.
Dicotyledons or "dicots" is a name for a group of flowering plants whose seed typically contains two embryonic leaves or cotyledons. There are around 199,350 species within this group http://www.redlist.org/info/tables/table1. Flowering plants that are not dicotyledons are monocotyledons, typically having one embryonic leaf.
