Introduction: The objective of this Angiosperm lab compare the life cycle of angiosperms to other phyla we have done in previous labs. We will also look to discuss the development of microspores and megaspores as well as what qualifies the angiosperms as the most advanced land plants. Another objective is to be able to describe the functions of leaves, stems, and roots as well as their internal and external structure. On the topic of growth we will look to distinguish primary and secondary growth from each other and try to explain what causes growth rings in trees. Angiosperms could most easily be described as flowering plants. Part of the seed or vascular group, they inhabit almost every environment on earth ( Pam Soltis, Doug Soltis, Christine Edwards). Amongst Angiosperms there is a huge variety in size, longevity, chemistry, and overall form. The are characterized by a flowering bud, double fertilization, and ovuals that are enclosed in a carpel ( Soltis et al). Monocots and Dicots are two types of seeds dispersed by vascular plants. One primary difference between the two is monocots contain only one cotyledon while a dicot contains two ( Vaughn and Godkin). Another difference is that while dicots contain a set of veins that intersect and form a network of sorts, monocots have veins that run
