Germination of seeds

25 May

Seeds consists of three main parts: (1) the seed coat, (2) the embryo, and (3) the endosperm. The seed coat, or outer skin, protects the embryo, which contains all the parts needed to form a new plant. The endosperm nourishes the embryo until it can make its own food. The endosperm of a monocot contains one cotyledon, and that of a dicot has two cotyledons.
