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).
