Incorrect link[edit]

1.1.2: "carpel" is incorrectly linked to Carpelan. 161.130.179.63 (talk) 00:03, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

The aforementioned error still stands. As carpel is a redirect to gynoecium, which is already linked just above, please change [[Carpelan|carpel]] to simply carpel. 161.130.179.63 (talk) 20:28, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Flower And its Different Sizes[edit]

Flowers have many different shapes and sizes, and there are many variations in colour, number of flower parts and the arrangements of these parts. Flowers are the reproductive parts of plants which are responsible for the production of gametes (sex cells). After fusion of the male and female gametes a zygote is produced which develops into an embryo within the seed. This seed gives rise to a new flowering plant of the same kind.

Generally, a flower consists of four whorls, which are a ring of leaves, viz.

the calyx on the outside

the corolla lying inside the calyx

the stamens enclosed by the corolla, and

the pistil in the center of the flower
