The figures show the types of placentation. Placentation is the arrangement of the placenta or placentae in the ovary of a flower. The function of placentation is to transfer nutrients from maternal tissue to a growing embryo. A: Marginal placentation is found in monocarpellary ovary. In this ovary is unilocular and ovules arranged along margin of unilocular ovary. Examples - pea, Clitoria, groundnut. B: Axile placentation is found in bi- or multicarpellary and multilocular ovary. Ovules are arranged along the central axis of placenta and the number of chambers corresponds to the number of carpels. Examples - lemon, tomato, Hibiscus, cotton. C: Parietal placentation is found in bi- or multicarpellary ovary but unilocular. Ovules are arranged along periphery or the inner wall of the ovary and number of placentae corresponds to the number of carpels. Examples - Cucurbita, Argemone. D: Free central placentation is found in multicarpellary, syncarpous ovary. Ovules are borne along the central axis which is not connected with the ovary wall by septum. Example - Dianthus roam Primrose. E: Basal placentation is found in monocarpellary but unilocular. In this placentation, the placenta develops at the base of the ovary and a single ovule is attached to it. Examples - sunflower, marigold.
