A plant is a multicellular organism that is one of the five kingdoms. They can make their own food by photosynthesis unlike animals. Another difference between plants and animals is the presence of a cell wall - this plants have (with cellulose in) but animals do not.


Flowering plants[edit | edit source]

There are two types of flowering plants; monocotyledons and dicotyledons.

Monocotyledons[edit | edit source]

  • Seed with one Cotyledon (or part of the embryo)
  • Narrow leaves have parallel veins
  • Flower parts arranged in threes
  • E.g. tulips, daffodils, grass and such cereals as wheat or maize

Dicotyledons[edit | edit source]

  • broad leaves
  • leaf veins dendritic
  • two cotyledons (food source)
  • flower parts in fives
  • vascular bundles in a ring in the stem
