They produce what we would call fruits and vegetables through pollination of their flowers. Angiosperms are divided into two different classes; monocots and dicots. Monocots do not have true vascular cambium, which would normally move water efficiently throughout the plant. They have one cotyledon per embryo which is the reason for the name “mono” cot. Monocots have leaf organization in threes; the leaves also have parallel venation. In the stem of the plant the vascular bundles are scattered, and the roots have a fibrous system. Dicots have two cotyledons per embryo, thus the prefix “di”. Unlike the monocots, dicots have a true vascular cambium and flower in multiples of four or five. The leaves of a dicot have netted venation, and the vascular bundles are arranged in a ring in the stem of the plant. All dicots are tap roots which makes them easy to classify. Angiosperms have a life cycle like many plants. There is a haploid and diploid stage, the
