WHAT DOES GYNAECIUM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Gynoecium

Gynoecium is most commonly used as a collective term for the structures of a flower that produce ovules and ultimately develop into the fruit and seeds. The basic unit of the gynoecium is the carpel which is interpreted as a modified leaf bearing ovules; the carpel is the site of the production of megaspores, which develops into the female gametophyte. Carpels are typically rolled and fused along their margins to produce an enclosing structure inside which the ovules develop. The gynoecium may consist of single carpels or multiple fused carpels, but in either case the structure looks similar and typically consists of an expanded basal portion called the ovaries, an elongated tube called a style and an apical structure that receives pollen called a stigma. The gynoecium is the inner most whorl of structures in a flower and is typically surrounded by the pollen-producing reproductive organs, collectively called the androecium. The androecium consists of stamens. The term gynoecium is also used by botanists to refer to a cluster of archegonia and any associated modified leaves or stems present on a gametophyte shoot in mosses, liverworts and hornworts.
