Allioideae is a subfamily of monocot flowering plants in the family Amaryllidaceae, order Asparagales. It was formerly treated as a separate family, Alliaceae. The subfamily name is derived from the generic name of the type genus, Allium. It is composed of approximately eighteen genera.
Aloe is a genus of approx. three hundred plants, a few of which are traditionally used medicinally. Aloe vera is a species of the genus Aloe and is probably the widest known o … f the Aloes. Generally speaking, when a product contains "aloe" it is a reference to the juice or an extract from A. vera, although sometimes other plants may be used such as A. Arborenscens.
The Amaryllidaceae are a family of herbaceous, mainly perennial and bulbous (rarely rhizomatous) flowering plants in the monocot order Asparagales. The family takes its name from the genus Amaryllis and is commonly known as the amaryllis family.
In fact, the Grass Family is the most common monocot family in our backyards, but there are other important monocot families, including the Lily (False Garlic's family) Orchid, Amaryllis, Iris, Canna, Banana, Sedge, Rush, and Palm Families.
The boundaries of the Asparagales and of its families have undergone a series of changes in recent years; future research may lead to further changes and ultimately greater stability. In the APG circumscription, Asparagales is the largest order of monocots with 14 families, 1,122 genera, and about 36,000 species.
Asparagus is a large and varied genus, including many species with bisexual flowers, and some monoecious or dioecious species (e.g. A. officinalis). Breitenbach (1878) observed that in the same species, individuals with pistillate flowers always have rudimentary staminodes, while individuals with staminate flowers exhibit much variation in the reduction of the pistil, ranging from fully functional to rudimentary.
The Bromeliaceae (the bromeliads) are a family of monocot flowering plants of 51 genera and around 3475 known species native mainly to the tropical Americas, with a few species found in the American subtropics and one in tropical west Africa, Pitcairnia feliciana.
In plant taxonomy, commelinids (originally commelinoids) (plural, not capitalised) is a name used by the APG IV system for a clade within the monocots, which in its turn is a clade within the angiosperms. The commelinids are the only clade that the APG has informally named within the monocots. The remaining monocots are a paraphyletic unit.
Daffodils are poisonousfor all common household pets and livestock. However, the good news is that there is a chemical calledgalantamine that daffodils produce. This has been used to combatAlzheimer's disease. All Narcissus (daffodils included) contain an alkaloid poisoncalled lycorine.
Monocot is also known as monocotyledon. It is a type or a group of flowering plants that only have one seed-leaf. The word monocot comes from the other group of flowering plants which is known as the dicot or dicotyledon. There are actually a lot of different plants that can be classified as monocots and one of them is the daylily plant.
Many monocots are herbaceous and do not have the ability to increase the width of a stem (secondary growth) via the same kind of vascular cambium found in non-monocot woody plants. However, some monocots do have secondary growth, and because it does not arise from a single vascular cambium producing xylem inwards and phloem outwards, it is termed "anomalous secondary growth".
Dracaena (/ d r ə ˈ s iː n ə /, derived from the romanized form of the Ancient Greek δράκαινα – drakaina, "female dragon") is a genus of about 120 species of trees and succulent shrubs. In the APG IV classification system, it is placed in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Nolinoideae (formerly the family Ruscaceae).
The terms monocot and dicot are abbreviated forms of monocotyledon and dicotyledon. A cotyledon is the leaf-like structure that a flowering plant first produces when it germinates. At its root, the distinction between monocots and dicots is the number of cotyledons it produces upon germination: one cotyledon makes a plant a monocot, and two cotyledons makes a plant a dicot.
Members of Hydrocharitaceae are generally dioecious (individuals are either male or female) and produce radially symmetrical flowers. The female flowers have an inferior ovary (i.e., positioned below the attachment point of the sepals and petals), and the inflorescences are usually subtended by two bracts (modified leaves).
This plant is a dicot because of the venation of the leaves. Because this plant has a network of xylem shoots in the leaves this plant is a dicot. It would have linear venatio … n in the leaves if it was a monocot. Also it has 2 cotyledons that sprout after germination with also confirms that this plant is a dicot.
Still, all have other characteristics that make them monocots (other than just having a single 'cot'); top left is Alocasia cuprea 'green'; top right is the common decorator anthurium, Anthurium amnicola; next row left is Anthurium 'Obake', right is a lace-leaf anthurium, Anthurium podophyllum; 3rd row left is a common Philodendron solleum, right is a variegated Shell Ginger; and bottom row left is Monstera deliciosa and right is a Bat Plant (Tacca sp.).
At one time the Liliales was considered to be one of the largest groups of monocots. However, since the group has been redefined to exclude the Asparagales, Dioscoreales, and Iridales, a position which is supported by both molecular and morphological evidence, the Liliales is now a rather small group, with about 1200 species.
The leaves of Monocots have parallel veins that begin at the base of the leaf and end at the tip without any branching (Lily family). The Dicots' veins start at the bottom and branch out in an ordered network all over the leaf (as in a rose).
Alstroemeria (/ ˌ æ l s t r ɪ ˈ m ɪər i ə /), commonly called the Peruvian lily or lily of the Incas, is a genus of flowering plants in the family Alstroemeriaceae. They are all native to South America although some have become naturalized in the United States, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Madeira and the Canary Islands.
Secondary growth is found in dicots but absent in monocots. Secondary growth helps in the production of wood and bark in trees. Examples of Monocots and Dicots. There are about 65,000 species of monocots. Some examples include lilies, daffodils, grains, sugarcane, banana, palm, ginger, rice, coconut, corn and onions.
The Orchidales include the orchids and three smaller families. Together, they are one of the largest groups of plants, although they are not of particular ecological or economic importance. Vanilla is cultivated for the strong flavor of its fruits; the little black specks in vanilla ice cream are actually the seeds from the orchid.
Palm trees are members of Division Anthophyta of the plant kingdom. Division Anthophyta is composed of angiosperms, commonly called flowering plants. Angiosperms are divided into two classes: monocotyledons and dicotyledons, or monocots and dicots.
Philodendron is a large genus of flowering plants in the Araceae family. As of September 2015, the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families accepted 489 species; other sources accept different numbers. Regardless of number of species, the genus is the second-largest member of the Araceae family.
Often called pandanus palms, these plants are not closely related to palm trees. The species vary in size from small shrubs less than 1 m (3.3 ft) tall, to medium-sized trees 20 m (66 ft) tall, typically with a broad canopy, heavy fruit, and moderate growth rate.
Galanthus nivalis is the best-known and most widespread representative of the genus Galanthus. It is native to a large area of Europe, stretching from the Pyrenees in the west, through France and Germany to Poland in the north, Italy, northern Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, and European Turkey.
Parallel (Monocots): Grass, corn (husks from corn on the cob work), bamboo, Tradescantia plants (Wandering Jew, Spiderwort), Spider plants, Liriope (Monkey Grass) Net (Eudicots): Maple, Oak, Dogwood (shows parallel net), Hosta, Birch, Any hardwood tree, Holly, Dandelion Note: Cone bearing trees are neither monocots nor eudicots. They are gymnosperm and a separate group of plants. Ferns are also a separate group.
Yam is the common name for some plant species in the genus Dioscorea that form edible tubers. Yams are perennial herbaceous vines cultivated for the consumption of their starchy tubers in many temperate and subtropical world regions. The tubers themselves are also called "yams", having numerous cultivars and related species. In parts of the United States and Canada, "yam" is sometimes used to refer to varieties of the unrelated sweet potato.
Other economically important monocot crops include various palms , bananas and plantains , gingers and their relatives, turmeric and cardamom (Zingiberaceae), asparagus (Asparagaceae), pineapple (Bromeliaceae), water chestnut , and leeks, onion and garlic (Amaryllidaceae).
Wheat is not a gymnosperm: it has tiny flowers that are hidden from view - that makes it an angiosperm. I think (but am not sure) that it is a monocot. Initially only one lea … f emerges, enclosed in a hard casing called the coleoptile. If it only has one leaf initially, then it is monocot.
These form three grades, the alismatid monocots, lilioid monocots and the commelinid monocots by order of branching, from early to late. In the following cladogram numbers indicate crown group (most recent common ancestor of the sampled species of the clade of interest) divergence times in mya (million years ago).
