How to use "Monocot genus" in context?
There are about 190 species of monocots, the largest and most diverse group of seed plants. Monocots are characterized by a single cotyledon, which is the first leaves to emerge from the seeds. Monocots evolved from grasses, which are the other large plant family. Monocots typically have narrower leaves and smaller flowers than other plants. Some well-known monocots include wheat, sorghum, and rice.
