Needs better explanation of technical details[edit]

I rewrote the article a little bit. I hope it's clearer now. - tameeria 20:52, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

-- Would it be incorrect to say something like: "An ovule, if fertilized, develops into a seed"? I think adding this in the introduction would help give some context for non-botanists. Tomatokate (talk) 19:37, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

--Uni-tegmic and bi-tegmic. The language of botanical flowers has always been Greek so should be Mono-tegmic and Di-tegmic. The language of leaves is Latin by convention and Uni- and Bi- are used for that purpose. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:38, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Micropyle of animal eggs[edit]

The pacific hering, clupea pallasi, has eggs with micropyles. Is the morphology of the egg comparable to what is described here for plant ovules? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:06, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
