Seed and Flower Dissection Conclusion From Labs 10a and 10c The purpose of Labs 10a and 10c was to see first hand the differences and similarities in  structures of flowers and seeds to make inferences about them according to “form fits function.”  Flowers tested include a purple lily, a white rose, a yellow rose, an Impatient, and an African  Lilly. The dissections showed that not all plants have sepals, the leaf-like parts of plants that  protect the female and male organs before the plant blooms. This could be because some plants,  like the African lily can depend on their own petals for protection, therefore deeming sepals  unnecessary. Another variable characteristic among plants tested is the number petals. Roses  tended to have many petals, ranging from 20 to over 50, while both lilies had only 6 petals. This  is because Lily’s are monocots, and all monocots have petals in multiples of three. Another

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
