In the sporophyte, tissue containing the megaspore mother cell, and a surrounding nucellus and integuments. It later contains the egg cell, and, following fertilization and development forms the seed.
There may be only one or there may be hundreds of ovules in a single ovary. An ovule is an immature seed.
A minute structure which, after fertilization, becomes a plant seed. The immature seeds before fertilization.

The body within the ovary of the flower that becomes the seed after fertilization and development.
The structure that contains the female sex-cell in plants which, after fertilisation, develops into the seed.
Structures in ovaries that contain eggs and when fertilized by pollen, develop into seeds.
(diminutive of L. ovum: egg) n. A structure in seed plants, the part of the female reproductive organs that consists of the megasporangium (nucellus), megaspore (embryo sac), and integuments (food store and coat) and develops into a seed after fertilization. The ovules of gymnosperms are situated on ovuliferous scales of the female cones while those of angiosperms are enclosed in the carpel.
Structure in seed plants comprised of the female gametophyte, the sporangium, one or two, rarely three, integuments, and a funiculus (stalk); after fertilization, it develops into the seed (Figs. 4.16, 4.17, 4.39).
Structure that contains the female gametophyte and gametes; after fertilization, develops into a seed.
An immature seed which develops into a seed after fertilisation.
The part of the plant that, after fertilisation, develops into the seed. It is composed of the embryo sac, the nucellus, the integuments and the funiculus
Structure in flowering plants containing the female sex cell (egg) that develops into a seed after fertilization. [GT
a small body that contains the female germ cell of a plant; develops into a seed after fertilization
a small or immature ovum
a Megasporangium with a covering Integument
a Megasporangium with a skin or Integument
a saclike structure that produces the megaspores and is enclosed by layers of cells
An outgrowth of the ovary of a seed plant that encloses an embryo.
A structure in a seed plant containing the female gametophyte with egg cell and surrounded by one or two integuments.
a plant's egg; found within the calyx, it contains all the female genes; When fertilized, an ovule will grow into a seed.
the female gamete.
The basil part of the flower which contains the seeds.
The embryonic seed that only develops into an embryo after fertilization by a pollen grain.
OV-yul In flowering plants, a megasporangium that contains a megaspore mother cell. 563
Structure that, when fertilized, develops into a seed.
unfertilized seed; the ovule contains the megasporangium with the megagametophyte, surrounded by one or two integuments integument
An immature female germ cell, which develops into a seed.
the organ of a seed-plant borne on the placenta that develops into a seed after fertilisation
that which develops into a seed, after fertilization.
Seed plants: A megasporangium covered by an integument. A single spore within the megasporangium develops into the megagametophyte, which ultimately produces one or more egg cells. Upon fertilization of the egg, the ovule becomes a seed.
A structure found in higher plants that contains an egg cell and develops into a seed after fertilization.
In seed plants, a protective structure in which the female gametophyte develops, fertilization occurs, and seeds develop; contained within the ovary. Structures inside the ovary of the flower within which the female gametophyte develops after megasporogenesis has produced a megaspore inside each ovule. PICTURE
the structure in a seed plant that develops into a seed after fertilization.
The structure that, after fertilization, becomes the seed; the egg containing unit of the ovary.
a structure in a seed plant within which one or more megaspores are formed and which develops into a seed after fertilisation.
(OH-vuhl) -- A small protuberance in the ovary, capable of forming a seed when fertilized.
This is the female organ of a plant containing the egg cell that will after pollination turn into a seed.
Structure containing an egg; a seed prior to fertilization.
female sex cell of the ovary. When fertilized by the pollen will form an embryo (an eventual seed).
The immature seed before fertilization
In seed plants, the structure which gives rise to the seed.
The structure within the ovary that will become the seed after fertilization.
The "little eggs" inside a flower's ovary. The ovules contain an 'egg' to be fertilised by one sperm from a pollen tube forming a zygote.
The body that when fertilized becomes the seed.
An ovule is the female reproductive cell of flowering plants and cone-bearing plants. After the ovule is fertilized by the male pollen, the ovule becomes a seed.
Gamete of a flowering plant, similar to egg cells in mammalian organisms.
An ovule is a structure found in seed plants that develops into a seed after fertilization. In Angiosperms, (the flowering plants, meaning enclosed seed), the ovule is found within part of the carpel known as the ovary, which ultimately becomes the fruit. In conifers and similar plants known as Gymnosperms (meaning naked seed), the ovules are borne unenclosed on the surface of an ovuliferous (ovule-bearing) scale, usually within a cone.
