Plant organs

Plant organs

Plant parts having rather distinct form, structure, and function. Organs, however, are interrelated through both evolution and development and are similar in many ways.

Roots, stems, and leaves are vegetative, or asexual, plant organs. They do not produce sex cells or play a direct role in sexual reproduction. In many species, nevertheless, these organs or parts of them (cuttings), may produce new plants asexually (vegetative reproduction). Sex organs are formed during the reproductive stage of plant development. In flowering plants, sex cells are produced in certain floral organs. The flower as a whole is sometimes called an organ, although it is more appropriate to consider it an assemblage of organs. See Flower, Fruit, Leaf, Reproduction (plant), Root (botany), Stem
