Angiosperms

'angiosperms'

[media:Any [[member of the more than 250,000 Species of flowering plants (division magnoliophyta) having roots, stems, leaves, and well-developed conductive tissues (xylem and phloem). Angiosperms are often differentiated from gymnosperms by their production of seeds within a closed chamber (the ovary). Example: Aplle trees and all fruit trees. The ovary wall is actually the fruit. The magnoliophyta division is composed of two classes, the monocotyledons (liliopsida) and dicotyledons (magnoliopsida).
