1

apical meristem becomes

flower

2

angiosperms

monocots and dicots

3

4 sets of leaf primordia (4 whorls)

sepals
petal
stamen
pistil

4

sepals

leaf primordia modified for protecting inside (surround petals)

5

calyx

sepals together

6

petal

colored to attract pollinator

7

corolla

petals together

8

boy part
produce pollen which contains sperm
anther and filament

produces pollen

10

filament

support

11

androecium

stamen together

12

pistil

female parts
has eggs
ovary, style, and stigma

13

gynoecium

pistils together

14

ovary

where eggs are produced

15

style

support

16

stigma

bulb

17

perianth

sepals and petals together

18

plants have biochemical blocks (rejects its own pollen)
if its own pollen lands on it, it won't grow

30

pollination vectors
