(redirected from Eudicot)


 (yo͞o′dī-kŏt′l-ēd′n) or eu·di·cot (yo͞o-dī′kŏt′)
Any of numerous flowering plants having two cotyledons in the seed, pollen grains with three pores, and usually the capacity for secondary growth, leaves with reticulate venation, and flower parts that are in multiples of four or five.

[eu-, true (since the eudicotyledons form a clade excluding certain other dicotyledonous groups, such as the magnoliids) + dicotyledon.]


(Plants) any plant belonging to one of the two major groups of flowering plants, comprising over 60 per cent of all plants, normally having net-veined leaves and two cotyledons in the seed

The plant lineage that includes the sacred lotus forms a separate branch of the eudicot family tree, and so lacks a signature triplication of the genome seen in most other members of this family, said University of Illinois plant biology and Institute for Genomic Biology professor Ray Ming, who led the analysis with Jane Shen-Miller, a plant and biology professor at the University of California at Los Angeles (who germinated a 1,300-year-old sacred lotus seed); and Shaohua Li, director of the Wuhan Botanical Garden at the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
