What kind of meristems do monocots and dicots have in common?

Merits and demerits of bentham and hooker system of classification?
this is a great natural system of classification of its own kind. this is highly suitable for practical purpose. polypetalae starts with Ranales consisting of well known Ranunculaceae and its allies. monocots have been derived from dicots. DEMERITS: this is not at all a phylogenetic system. it is mainly based on few artificial characters there fore closely related species are often widely separated. Monochlamydeae are grouped far apart from the polypetalae. musaceae and orchidaceae of monocots have been placed in the begining although they have several advanced features. the position of gymnosperms in between dicots and monocots is evidently anomalous.
Asked in Science
Monocots and dicots are what kind of green plants?
They are seed plants, and are angiosperms. (flowering seed plants) Monocots: They have one cotyledon (which they store food in), flowers parts in threes, leaves are parallel veins, have bundles ofvasular tissue that are scattered. They include grasses, orchids, onions, lilies, ad palms. Dicots: They have two cotyledons, flower parts in four or fives, leaves are with branching veins, have bundles of vascular tissue in a ring. They include roses, cactuses, sunflowers, peanut, and peas. Believe me, these are all from my science text book!!!!!!!!!!
Asked in Stem Cells
How are meristems in plants similar to and different from stem cells in animals?
Similarities: They both have 2 types of stem cells Differences: Apical meristem increases length and lateral increases width whereas in animals they become specialized cells to increase the efficiency of the systems in the body. in plants apical and lateral meristems can differentiate into any kind of cell whereas in animals only embryonic stem cells can do that not tissue stem cells.
