How eudicots (true dicots) differ from monocots Animation




Most flowering plants are either monocots or eudicots. They have the same tissues, but slightly different features. Monocot seeds have a single cotyledon, or seed leaf. Eudicot seeds have two cotyledons. Monocot flowers usually have petals and other floral parts in multiples of three. Flowers of true dicots have four or five floral parts, or multiples thereof. Monocot leaves usually have veins oriented in a parallel array. Veins of eudicots are branching and netlike. Monocot pollen grains have a single pore or furrow. A grain of eudicot pollen has three pores or furrows. In a monocot stem, vascular bundles are distributed throughout the ground tissue. In a eudicot stem, the vascular bundles are arranged in a ring around the ground tissue. In Summary, Monocots have a single cotyledon and vascular tissues that are distributed through the ground tissue. Eudicots have pollen with three pores or furrows, floral parts in multiples of four or five, and branching leaf veins.
