A specialized meristem found in woody plants, that produces the xylem and phloem of the stem. Specialized cell type of the vascular system which transport water through the plant and which lack cytoplasm and nuclei but have specialized cell walls. Reproduction In Plants Description Structure of the flower in which the male gametes, pollen grains, are formed and stored. Cells at the chalazal end of the embryo sac that may be important for nutrient uptake. A plant producing seed without undergoing fertilization. Reduced leaves that are formed by an inflorescence meristem. Parts of the flower containing the female gametes; originates from the innermost whorl 4. A cell at the center of the embryo sac with two nuclei. The end of the embryo sac farthest from the egg. The "seed leaves" of angiosperms, which nourish the embryo during...
