Eudicotyledons

Eudicotyledons

One of the two major types of flowering plants (angiosperms), characterized by possession of three apertures in their pollen; the other major type is magnoliids. Although this difference in pollen development and form has been known for a long time, it has become clear, as a result of several studies of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequences, that this difference is very significant. The high degree of coincidence of the genetic data with this pollen distinction means that it is more important to recognize this distinction than the number of seed leaves, as previously thought.

2007) that predominantly control monocotyledon species and some eudicotyledons.
For the viable herbicide prospects reported in this review to become registered, it would be necessary to direct the efforts of research institutions and/or rural extensions, associations and farmers cooperatives, combined with those of manufacturing companies, to register these selective herbicides (primarily latifolicides used to control eudicotyledons in castor bean crops).
Within the large group of dicotyledons angiosperms, two main clades were observed: the group of Eudicotyledons represented only by Ranunculus peruvianus and the Core Eudicots.
