Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

  • Cycads
They are palm like plants that mostly grow in the tropical regions, bearing large male or female cones. They were abundant during the Triassic and Jurassic eras, but have since been in decline.

  • Ginkgoes
It is a deciduous Chinese tree related to the conifers, that has fan-shaped leaves and yellow flowers. It has a number of primitive features and is similar to some Jurassic fossils.

  • Angiosperms
This is a plant that has flowers and that produces seeds enclosed within a carpel. The angiosperms are a large group and include herbaceous plants, shrubs, grasses, and most trees.

  • Monocots
They are plants whose seeds typically contain only one embryonic leaf, or cotyledon

  • Eudicots
It is an angiosperm having two cotyledons in the seed, it's leaves have a network of veins radiating from a central main vein, flower parts in multiples of four or five, and a ring of vascular cambium in the stem. In contrast to most monocotyledons, eudicotyledons undergo secondary growth

  • Receptacle
This is an enlarged area at the apex of a stem that bears the organs of a flower or the florets of a flower head
