The internal structure of a monocot leaf differs from a dicot leaf's internal structure because monocot leaves are composed of one seed, and dicot leaves are based on a two-seed structure. For this reason, monocot seeds will produce single-leaf plants, and dicot seedlings will produce dual-leaf plants.

More Facts About Monocot and Dicot Leaves And Seeds

• When plants sprout and grow their leaves, new contrasts between the monocot and dicot leaves will become more apparent. For example, the flowers produced by monocot and dicot plants will have different petal counts and configurations. A typical dicot plant will grow four to five petals, while a typical monocot plant will grow only three petals.
• The veins evident in monocot and dicot leaves will also appear different from one another. For example, dicot-based leaf structures will have plenty of veins, attached to a central vein, whereas monocot leaf structures will have veins that are parallel with the leaf's total length.

Textbooks related to biology and botany will be excellent ways to learn more about the differences between monocot and dicot leaves and seedlings. In some cases, high school or earlier grade science classes will cover the leaf structure of monocot and dicot leaves in certain parts of the coursework.

Students may be asked to do expository experiments by collecting monocot and dicot leaves, and observing the differences. Then, students will need to determine whether the differences between monocot and dicot leaves are based on their cellular structure. The best science student will examine leaves under a magnifying glass to see vein structures and other important clues; these students will also consider the overall outer shape, and configuration, or plant leaves of the monocot or dicot variety.

The study of biology is the study of living organisms, and it begins on a cellular level. By knowing the cellular makeup of monocot and dicot plants, scientists can learn more about how plants grow, and how they are different from one another.

Following are some of the differences between Monocots and Dicots. First different is that monocots have single cotyledons in their embryos while dicots have double cotyledons. Secondly, Monocots have Pollens with single furrow or pore while dicots have Pollens with three furrows or pores. Thirdy, monocots have flower parts in multiples of three and dicots have flower parts in multiples of four or five. Fourthly, in monocots major leaf veins are parallel and in dicots major leaf veins are reticulated. Fifthly, Stem vacular bundles are scattered in monocots and Stem vascular bundles are in ring form in dicots. Another difference is that monocots have Roots which are adventitious while in dicots Roots develop from radicle. Moreover, Secondary growth is absent in monocots and secondary growth is often present in dicots.

In nature, we can leaf veins of the type of root and flower morphology to distinguish these two types of plants. In general, as apple trees, poplar, elm, locust, cotton, sunflower and other dicotyledonous plants, their leaves have net venation; while wheat, rice, bamboo, iris, etc. The leaves of monocotyledons or parallel venation arc pulse sequence, this feature can be observed with the naked eye, if the leaves look toward the sun, can be observed more clearly. Morphology in the root, main root dicotyledons generally well-developed root system it is mostly straight, such as cotton, evening primrose, elm, etc.; and monocotyledons generally developed taproot, adventitious root formation from the most to root, such as wheat, onions, rice, etc.. Dicotyledon flower base usually 5 or 4, calyx and corolla are many different forms, such as apple flower, rape, etc.; and monocotyledon flower base usually 3, and calyx and corolla are very similar and difficult to distinguish such as the lily, day lily flowers.
