Seed

Science / Biology / Seed: Structure produced by some plants in which the next generation sporophyte is surrounded by gametophyte nutritive tissues. An immature sporophyte in an arrested state of development, surrounded by a pr MORE

Flowers

Capsule

Science / Biology / Capsule: 1. Structure produced around certain bacteria; 2. Structure produced by the bryophyte sporophyte that contains spores produced by meiosis. MORE

Angiosperms

Science / Biology / Angiosperms: Flowering plants. First appearing at least 110 million years ago from an unknown gymnosperm ancestor, flowering planbts have risen to dominance in most of the worlds floras. The male gametophyte is 2- MORE
