Describe the gynoecium of a typical flower.

The gynoecium is the female reproductive part of a typical flower. It is made of one or more carpels.

A carpel consists of the following three parts:

1. Ovary: It is the enlarged basal part of the flower.

Each ovary bears one or more ovules attached to the placenta.

2. Style: The style is a tube-like structure which connects the ovary to the stigma.

3. Stigma: It is the receptive surface for pollen grains.

If the carpels are free from one another, then they are called apocarpous. If they are fused, then they are called syncarpous.NA
