Example Question #1 : Understanding Plant Reproductive Structures
What is the female reproductive structure in angiosperms?
Angiosperms are flowering plants. They have both male and female reproductive organs.
The pistil is the female reproductive structure, and consists of three parts. The stigma is the sticky knob used to catch pollen. It is situated at the top of the style, while the ovary contains egg cells and is located below the style.
The stamen is the male reproductive structure, and consists of two parts. The anther produces pollen, and the filament helps in holding up the anther.
