In what ways do monocots and dicots differ?
In fact, monocots differ from dicots in four structural features: their leaves, stems, roots and flowers. Within the seed lies the plant's embryo; it is here that the first difference between the two types can be seen. Whereas monocots have one cotyledon (vein), dicots have two.
Are trees monocots or dicots?
All dicots and monocots are flowering plants, and so are descended from flower-producing plants. However, the flowers are not always large and showy the way we expect flowers to be. Oaks, maples, and sycamore are all dicot trees, but they do not produce obvious flowers.
