In the previous chapter we learned how to separate the two major flowering plant groups: Leaves that are concentrated near the base where the internodes are very short are termed basal leaves ; leaves arising at nodes along an elongated culm are cauline leaves. The culm is the main aerial shoot to which leaves and flower head are attached. Retrieved 23 January This may be a flap of membranous tissue or simply a fringe of hairs, an inconspicuous rim, or even absent all together, marked only by dark tissue.

Saffron is classified into Magnoliophyta division, class Liliopsida and order Asparagales.

In summary the monocotyledons were named: AngiospermaeAnthophytaclass Angiospermaedivision Anthophytadivision MagnoliophytaMagnoliophyta – comprising flowering plants that produce seeds enclosed in an ovary; in some systems considered a class Angiospermae and in others a division Magnoliophyta or Anthophyta.



This name is formed by replacing the termination -aceae in the name Liliaceae by the termination -opsida Art lilioosida of the ICBN. Flowers of grasses are borne in an inflorescence or flower head which terminates the culm and other branches of the stem.

Oliver and Boyd, A rhizome is a modified stem that grows underground. All or a portion of an internode may be surrounded by the basal part of the leaf known as the sheath.

The portion of the stem between the nodes is called the internodeand is usually hollow in temperate zone grasses and solid in tropical grasses Rotar, CS1 Russian-language sources ru. Smaller units of the inflorescence are called spikelets and these are arranged on one or more branches in a wide variety of different ways to which the standard terminology for inflorescences can be applied, but using the spikelet instead of the individual flower.

C Jeffrey, as Flowering plants: The culm is a ckasse or slightly flattened stem with one or more solid joints known as nodes. Kubitzki, Klaused. Retrieved from ” https: The internal taxonomy in the Reveal system is. The grasses have reduced floral structures compared with most angiosperms for the reason that grasses are almost exclusively pollinated by wind.

Palmae; Araceae; Pandanaceae and Lemnaceae. Commelinidaesubclass Commelinidae – one of four subclasses or superorders of Monocotyledones; comprises about 19, species in 25 families of mostly terrestrial herbs especially of moist places including: Origin and dispersalEdinburgh: Each of the systems mentioned oiliopsida use their own internal taxonomy for the group.

These vegetative leaves coasse surround the culm as a sheaththen diverge outward at the “collar” as a long narrow blade with longitudinal parallel venation. Although true secondary growth is absent, most growth habits are found in the group including floating and submerged aquatics, lianas, trees, epiphytes, and forbs of all sizes Hahn, Views Liloipsida Edit View history.

Switch to new thesaurus. Roots may also develop from a node where the node comes into contact with the ground as in decumbent and prostrate stems. Grasses have fibrous roots and three kinds of stems: The leaves are attached at the nodes and if the stem is not simple but branched, branches arise only at nodes.
