  17. Pollination • Pollen germination • Pollen tube growth • Double fertilization

  18. Angiosperm Seeds • Zygote  Embryo • Triploid cell  Endosperm (food supply) • Integuments  Seed coat

  19. Corn Seeds

  20. Bean Seeds Question: Where is the endosperm?

  21. Cotyledon stays within kernel  nutrients from endosperm to seedling

  22. Evolution

  23. Basal Angiosperms

  24. Monocots

  25. Magnoliids

  26. Eudicots Photo Credits: ACC Field Biology Student, 2005
