From each ovary an oviduct (fig.
The sole difference is therefore that in Eudrilus the ovarian sac gives rise to a tube which bifurcates, one branch meeting a corresponding branch of the other ovary of the pair, while the second branch reaches the exterior.
The ovary bears a sessile stigma and is more or less completely two-celled, with two erect ovules in each cell.
The seed is enclosed when ripe in the fruit, a development of the ovary as a result of fertilization of the egg-cell.
Whitish to 3, Ovary cut lengthwise.
The ovary is an organ which in shape and size somewhat resembles a large almond, though its appearance varies considerably in different individuals, and at different times of life.
Dissepi:ments extend to the centre or axis, the ovary is divided into cavities or cells, and it may be bilocular, trilocular (fig.
The ovary is three-celled, and lies at the bottom of this tube.
The petaloid perianth consists of two series, each with three members, which are joined below into a longer or shorter tube, followed by one whorl of three stamens; the inferior ovary is three-celled and contains numerous ovules on an axile placenta; the style is branched and the branches are often petaloid.
In Casuarina, Juglans and the order Corylaceae, the pollen-tube does not enter by means of the micropyle, but passing down the ovary wall and through the placenta, enters at the chalazal end of the ovule.
