Compare and contrast basal dicots and eudicots?

Apr 27th, 2015

- single cotyledon 
-vascular bundles irregularly distributed in cross section of the stem 
-parallel veins in the leaves 
-flower parts in multiples of three. 
- lack of true secondary growth 
- in root vascular bundles arranged in a ring 
- Roots are adventitious (=the radicle aborts and new roots arise adventitiously from nodes in the stem) 

dicots: 
- two cotyledons 
- Flower parts in multiples of four or five 
- Major leaf veins reticulated 
-Stem vascular bundles in a ring 
-in root vascular bundles arranged in middle of the plant 
-Roots develop from radicle (=In most dicots the root develops from the lower end of the embryo, from a region known as the radicle. The radicle gives rise to an apical meristem which continues to produce root tissue for much of the plant's life.) 
-Secondary growth often present
