Monocotyledonae, or the longer name for monocot, refers to the number of cotyledons that monocots have, (the prefix “mono” means one), and monocots have embryos with single cotyledons. Monocots are the most popularly known classification of angiosperms. Monocot pollen has a single furrow or pore. In monocots, flower parts come in multiples of three. In the leaves, the veins are usually parallel through the length of the leaf. Vascular tissue (or vascular bundles) is arranged in a scattered appearance throughout the stem. In monocots, new roots arise from nodes in the stem. Secondary growth in monocots is absent.
