Seed Structure and Function

  • The primary purpose of a seed is to allow a plant to reproduce and disperse its offspring.
  • Ovules are arranged in the ovaries of a plant, which are the female reproductive structures.
  • The micropyle is a small opening in an ovule that allows pollen to enter and fertilize the egg cell.
  • The kernel of a seed is defined as the embryo and its surrounding tissues, which are protected by the seed coat.
  • Seeds are classified according to their kernel into three main categories: albuminous (presence of endosperm), exalbuminous (absence of endosperm), and naked (seed coat directly surrounds the embryo).
