Describe the development of a eudicot during germination.
If the two cotyledons of the seed are parted, the rudimentary plant with immature leaves are exposed. As it starts to form, the root emerges first, the shoot is hook shaped to protect the immature leaves. The cotyledons provide the new seedlings enough energy for the stem to straighten and leaves to grow. As the mature leaves of the plant begin photosynthesizing the cotyledons shrivel up.
