Difference between Anatomical Structures of Dicot stem and Monocot stem
- Multicellular stem hair present.
- The hypodermis is composed of collenchyma tissue.
- Cortex can be differentiated into extrasolar and interstellar regions.
- Extrastlar cortex again can be differentiated into hypodermis, general cortex and endodermis.
- Vascular bundle are, usually, fixed in number and are arranged in the ring
- Pericycle is present outside the vascular bundles.
- Bundle sheath is absent.
- Vascular bundles, conjoint collateral or collateral type.
- Medulla and medullary ray present.
- Stem hair absent.
- The hypodermis is composed of sclerenchyma tissue.
- Cortex can’t be differentiated into extrastelar and intrastelar regions.
- From below the hypodermis, cortex extends up to the centre.
- Vascular bundles are numerous and are scattered in ground tissue.
- Pericycic is absent.
- Bundle sheath is present and around the vascular ground tissue.
- Vascular bundles, conjoint collateral and dosed type
- Medullary ray is not distinguished from the ground tissue.
