Answer

Surya rao Sripathi

 

 

The arrangement of veins in a leaf is termed as venation. Venation may differ from one type of plant to another.

 

Parallel venation

Reticulate venation

Veins run parallel to one another from the base to the tip of the leaf.

Veins are arranged in a net-like pattern on both sides of the midrib.

This is a characteristic feature of monocot plants.

This is a characteristic feature of the dicot plants.

E.g. Banana, Bamboo.

E.g. Hibiscus, mango

Reticulate venation-veins are interconnected and form a web like network

Parrallel venation-A pattern in the veins of a leaf where the secondary veins run parallel to each other off of a central, perpendicular primary vein.

There are two types of venations :- parallel &reticulate

Rekha Sharma

Venation on a leaf in a net like manner is called reticulate venation. Whereas, arrangement of veins parallel to each other is called parallel venation

Anand Iyer

In parallel venation the veins are nearly parallel to each other. It is found in plants which have monocot seeds. Reticulate venation has veins form a complicated net like pattern. They are found in plants having dicot seeds.

Parallel venation Reticulate venation

This is a characteristic feature of monocot plants. This is a characteristic feature of the dicot plants.

Vanshi Dhaduk

Parallel venation-The veins are arranged in parallel rows within the leaf. For example,leaves of monocots ike grass,wheat and banana.
Reticulate venation-The veins and veinlets are irregularly distyrbed forming a network. For example the leaves of dicots like mango and guava.

Harsheel

In reticulate veniation veins are arranged in a net like pattern of the both sides of the midrib. In a parallel Venus the Venus run parallel to one another from the base to the tip of the leaf

Anmol

Vein of leaf run parallel to each other is called parallel venation but vein of leaf form a network on leaf is called reticular venation

Janice

The veins of a reticulate venation are net-like and the veins of the parallel venation are parallel to one another

Parallel Venation : Parallel Venation refers to the arrangement of veins in a parallel way from the base to the tip of th leave.Eg. Onion,banana.etc.... Retuculate Venation : This type of venation refers to the arrangement of ven in a net-like pattern in front and behinde of the leave.Eg. Peepul,Mango.etc....... I wish this nformation will help you Prachi!! :)

Reticulate venation                                 Parallel venation

Veins are arranged in a net like                              Veins run parallel to one another 
pattern on both sides of the midgrib.                       from the base to the tip of leaf.
