What are cotyledons?

10 months ago

Cotyledons, or seed leaves, are structures formed by the embryo of angiosperms to absorb nutrients from the endosperm and to store and transfer these nutrients to the embryo. (Cotyledons are auxiliary embryonic structures).

Seeds of monocots have a single cotyledon. Seeds of dicots have two cotyledons.
