WHAT DOES MEGASPOROPHYLL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

megasporophyll

Sporophyll

A sporophyll is a leaf that bears sporangia. Both microphylls and megaphylls can be sporophylls. In heterosporous plants, sporophylls bear either megasporangia, or microsporangia. The overlap of the prefixes and roots makes these terms a particularly confusing subset of botanical nomenclature. Sporophylls vary greatly in appearance and structure, and may or may not look similar to sterile leaves. Plants that produce sporophylls include: Alaria esculenta a brown alga shows sporophylls attached near the base of the alga. Lycophytes, where sporophylls may be aggregated into strobili or distributed singly among sterile leaves. Sporangia are distinctively borne in the axil or on the adaxial surface of the sporophyll. In heterosporous members, megasporophylls and microsporophylls may be intermixed or separated in a variety of patterns. Ferns, which may produce sporophylls that are similar to sterile fronds or that appear very different from sterile fronds. These may be non-photosynthetic and lack typical pinnae Cycads produce strobili, both pollen-producing and seed-producing, that are composed of sporophylls.
