What is Flower symmetry class 11?

Flower symmetry can be grouped into three categories- **radial symmetry (actinomorphic), bilateral symmetry (zygomorphic), and asymmetry**. In radial symmetry, the flower can be divided into two equal parts in any radial plane. Examples: datura, hibiscus, rose, etc.

## What is the symmetry of a flower?

Flowers have two kinds of symmetry. Symmetries are classified into two types: **radial and bilateral**. Actinomorphic flowers have radial symmetry and can be separated into two equal halves on any radial plane located at the center. The actinomorphic flowers include the lily and the buttercup.

## What kind of symmetry is flower?

Flowers have two kinds of symmetry. Symmetries are classified into two types: **radial and bilateral**. Actinomorphic flowers have radial symmetry and can be separated into two equal halves on any radial plane located at the center. The actinomorphic flowers include the lily and the buttercup.

## What type of symmetry is flower?

Flowers have two kinds of symmetry. Symmetries are classified into two types: **radial and bilateral**. Actinomorphic flowers have radial symmetry and can be separated into two equal halves on any radial plane located at the center. The actinomorphic flowers include the lily and the buttercup.

## Do flowers have bilateral symmetry?

**When a flower can be divided by a single plane into two equal parts, it is zygomorphic, or bilaterally symmetrical**, as in the snapdragon, orchid, and sweet pea.

## What is meant by flower symmetry?

Floral symmetry **describes whether, and how, a flower, in particular its perianth, can be divided into two or more identical or mirror-image parts**.

## Why do flowers have symmetry?

Some flowers have evolved symmetry **as a way to attract pollinators**. Several genes are responsible for the symmetry found in flowers. Scientists found that when they disabled these genes, the flowers became asymmetrical and weren't as attractive to pollinators.Nov 23, 2020

## What is the most symmetrical flower?

**Sunflowers** are interesting because they contain both radial and bilateral symmetry. The outer ring of a Sunflower known as ray florets are bilaterally symmetrical whereas the dark inner ring is a cluster of radially symmetrical disk florets.

## What is meant by asymmetric flower?

**When the flower cannot be divided into two equal halves in any plane**, it is called an asymmetrical flower.

## Does a flower have symmetry?

**Most flowers are either bilaterally symmetrical (i.e., zygomorphic) and have a single plane of symmetry or radially symmetrical (i.e., actinomorphic) and have several planes of symmetry** (1).
