describe the stages in embryo development in dicot plant
Mostly the zygote develops only after certain amount of endosperm is formed to ensure that nutrition will be provided for the developing embryo.
the embryo develops at the micropylar end of the ovule.
Dicot plants have 2 cotyledons and an embryoal axis.
the portion above the cotyledons is called the epicotyl it terminates with the plumule
the portion below the cotyledons is called the hypocotyl and terminates with the radicle and root cap
note: after the embryo develops the root grows towards the micropylar end while the plumule grows towards the chalazal end
