Magnoliopsida is the group of flowering plants traditionally classified as dicotyledons. The dicots produce a pair of seed leaves that push through the soil when they germinate as against the single leaf produced by monocots. About four fifths of the flowering plants are dicots, about 200,000 species, and they include oaks, potatoes, daisies, cabbages, roses, cacti, buttercups, chestnut trees, heathers, mints and beans. The dicots are listed under their family names.
