Vascular Plants of the Gila Wilderness-- Eudicots

Presented in Association with the
Western New Mexico University Department of Natural Sciences


Eudicots are one of the types of flowering plants, or angiosperms. The Eudicots have pollen with three pores or furrows. Eudicots have two initial leaves breaking the ground, reticulate veins in the leaves and flower parts in fours or fives. There are closed ovaries in which the seeds are found, not cones. Some evolutionarily more primitive plants previously included in the older "Dicot" classification, have been reordered into the Magnoliids.
