The pollen Structure in monocots one furrow or pore while dicots have three. Flowering plants heterosporangiate (producing two types of reproductive spores). The pollen (male spores) and ovules (female spores) are produced in different organs, but the typical flower is a bisporangiate strobilus in that it contains both organs.
