First leaves developed in the embryo of a seed.
A leaf of the embryo of a seed plant, which upon germination either remains in the seed or emerges, enlarges and becomes green. Also called seed leaf.
The cotyledons are the leaf-like structures in the seed. In a dicot seed, there are two halves to the seed as in a bean. These two halves are the seed leaves of the bean seed. In the corn seed, there is only one seed leaf, thus the seed is not divided into two halves. DIAGRAMS: Cotyledons / Acorn PHOTOS
The cotyledons are the first leaves of a plant after germination. They are usually quite different from the leaves that will grow later and can be typical for a plant or a group of plants. Among conifers, their number is highly variable between the genera and even between the species (example : Pinus), from 2 (some Cupressus, Araucaria [sometimes 3], Cephalotaxus, Juniperus) to 24 cotyledons ( Pinus maximartinezii - highest number of all plants).

The one (monocot) or two (dicot) seed leaves of an angiosperm embryo.
The first leaves that are produced from the seed
The first or second-leaves of plants.
The embryo leaf or leaves of seed plants that usually stores or absorbs food in a young seedling; in angiosperms (flowering plants) the following distinction is made with respect to the cotyledons: dicots have two cotyledons and monocots have one cotyledon.
