MCQs on Plant Morphology

Plant morphology is the study of structural features of the plant. It is useful for the visual identification of the plants. It observes both the vegetative as well reproductive features of the plants. It deals with plant growth habit and the overall architecture of the plant. It examines the development pattern, and the process of origination and maturation of plants. These morphological differences are used to classify the plants.
