What is the difference between carpels and pistils?
What is a carpel?
Carpels are comprised of the stigma, style and ovary, the female parts of a flower. Flowers can have one or more carpels.
What is a pistil?
A pistil can either be the same as an individual carpel – comprised of the stigma, style and ovary, or a collection of carpels fused together. This means a pistil can have lots of carpels.
The Stig’s ma (stigma) stood over the carp barrel (carpel) and shot them with a pistol (pistil) so she could eat them. One pistol (pistil) can have lots of carp (carpels).
