A carpel is the outer, often visible part of the female reproductive organ of a flower; the basic unit of the gynoecium.
The gynoecium, the collective term for all the carpels, is the innermost whorl of the parts of a flower, and in many flowers the other parts (sepals, petals, and stamens) are attached to the receptacle beneath the gynoecium.
An example of a simple carpel is that of a pea, bean or Arabidopsis: the fruit develops from the single carpel consisting of two rows of ovules aligned beside one another along the placental margin.

Reproductive competence of flowering plants requires proper development of the carpel, which is the female reproductive organ of the plant.
The carpel margin meristems (CMMs) provide an excellent system to study basic problems in developmental biology such as patterning, the regulation of cellular proliferation and the control of organ size and shape.
