A plant with only one cotyledon, or seed lobe; a member of the Monocotyledonae.
(adj.) A plant having a single cotyledon or seed leaf in the embryo. It includes palms, lilies, and orchids. (monocotyledonous, adj.) Compare with dicotyledon.
A seed with only one cotyledon
Seedling of flowering plant which only one leaf when it first germinates
A class of plants with embryos that have one cotyledon, such as maize and wheat.
a class of angiosperms whose seeds have a single cotyledon; the term is commonly abgbreviated to monocot. Most grasses are monocots.
Angiosperm with a single seed leaf, parallel-veined leaves, no cambian layer, and floral parts usually in threes.
plants with one seed leaf and parallel veined leaves
a monocotyledonous flowering plant; the stem grows by deposits on its inside

Monocot ( mó´-ne-kòt´l-êd´-n, mó´-ne-kòt) - Having one seed leaf.
A subclass of the flowering plants ( Angiosperms). Named for having only one seed leaf ( cotyledon) they tend to have narrow leaves, parallel veins in the leaves, flower parts usually in multiples of three, a scattered arrangement of primary vascular bundles in the stem, and fibrous root systems. Also known as Monocot. Common North Country monocots include the grasses and sedges, and the Blue Flag Iris ( Iris versicolor). See Dicotyledon.
The Monocotyledons or monocots are a group of flowering plants, dominating great parts of the earth. Monocots comprise the majority of agricultural plants in terms of biomass produced.
