The chapter 'Anatomy of Flowering Plants' deals with higher plants' functional organization and internal structure. In simple words, the analysis of the internal structure of plants is referred to as Anatomy. Here, it is explained that plants are composed of cells as their primary unit, which is further organized into tissues that are arranged into various parts of the plant.
The monocots and dicots inside an angiosperm are said to be anatomically different. Even the internal structures of a plant easily adapt to diverse environments. Other topics introduced in this chapter are the Tissues, The Tissue System, Secondary Growth, Anatomy of Monocotyledonous and Dicotyledonous Plants, and a few more. A gist of all the above topics is given below.
In biological terms, a detailed study of a living entity's internal structure is called anatomy. And, in this chapter, the internal structure of the flowering plant will be studied. To study the anatomy of plants, the study of histology is a prerequisite. The study of the tissue structure and the organization structure is called histology. From this chapter, the students are enriched with knowledge about different types of tissues plants have.
Plant tissues are broadly classified into permanent and meristematic tissues. Transportation of minerals & water, offering mechanical support, photosynthesis, assimilation of food materials, and proper storage are essential operations of plants carried out by the tissues. Each part of the flowering plant's anatomical characteristics has been thoroughly explained in this chapter that includes the seeds, various parts of a dicot and monocot seeds, how they are different from each other, and their different zones, and more.
