can you give an example for  staminode.?

Dear Student,

Though Rajiv has given the correct answer, I would like to add that the rudimentary, sterile or abortive stamen is referred to as the staminode. The most common example of staminode is banana. The flower of banana contains five stamens that are reduced to staminodes.

Hope this helps,

@Rajiv, Good answer, keep it up!!
