  7. 7. Characteristics of Dicots
  8. 8. Comparison of Plants  Monocot is on the left – Oat plant  Dicot is on the right – Bean plant  Notice the difference in the two plants
  9. 9. Vascular Bundle ofMonocots  In monocots, the vascular bundles in the stem cross section are usually scattered or more complex of an arrangement as compared to dicots.
  10. 10. Vascular Bundle ofDicots  The vascular bundles in the stem cross section of dicots are arranged in a circle, or ring.
