cotyledon, in botany, a leaf of the embryo of a seed.
In some seeds the cotyledons are flat and leaflike; in others, such as the bean, the cotyledons store the seed's food reserve for germination and are fleshy.

 Daylily Dictionary: Cotyledon
Flowering plants, called angiosperms, have embryos within their seeds that form one or two cotyledons, also often referred to as "seed leaves".
Those with one cotyledon are known as monocotyledons or monocots.
When seeds germinate, the cotyledon/s may remain below the soil surface (known as "hypogeous" germination), or emerge above it (known as "epigeous" germination), depending on the type of plant.

Structure in the embryo of a seed plant that may form a ‘leaf’; after germination and is commonly known as a seed leaf.
The number of cotyledons present in an embryo is an important character in the classification of flowering plants (angiosperms).
In seeds that also contain endosperm (nutritive tissue), the cotyledons are thin, but where they are the primary food-storing tissue, as in peas and beans, they may be quite large.

Gymnosperm seedlings also have cotyledons, and these are often variable in number (multicotyledonous), with from 2 to 24 cotyledons forming a whorl at the top of the hypocotyl (the embryonic stem) surrounding the plumule.
Cotyledons may be either epigeal, expanding on the germination of the seed, throwing off the seed shell and become photosynthetic above the ground; or hypogeal, not expanding, remaining below ground and not becoming photosynthetic.
The latter is typically the case where the cotyledons act as a storage organ, as in many nuts and acorns.
