Embryo of dicot seed

Post by Navin » Fri Oct 28, 2005 11:33 am

I know that the embryo of a seed includes the plumule and radicle. However does it also include the cotyledons?

Based on that, how would i answer this question:

Which parts which form the embryo of the seed develop into a new plant?

Are the cotyledons included in this case?

probably not, the cotyledons are shed.

Opultia is right
You should read the definition of embryal, from the heart shape, embryal contain the cotyledons
Good luck

ok, so now i know that cotyledons form part of the embryo but do not develop into the new plant.
Thanks.
