1. Leaf venation patterns: parallel veined leaves are characteristic of monocots; reticulate venation is characteristic of dicots.
2. Meristematic activity: dicot leaves show apical growth, followed by growth of the leaf margins and lamina. monocot leaves grow by intercalary growth which lasts longest at the base of the leaf blade
3. Most dicots have a palisade arrangement of mesophyll tissues. Monocots either have a uniform mesophyll or one in which the photosynthetic parenchyma are distributed like spokes on a wheel around the vascular bundles (Krantz anatomy).

State three ways in which the distribution of tissues in the transverse section of root differs from that of the stem.

1. a stem does not have a root cap.
2. a stem does not have root hairs
3. a root does not have lateral buds
