I have been reading a lot more about the actual botany of plant and have some questions: Are the carpel and gynoecium used interchangeably (basically the same thing correct?) Which is Stigma, Style, Ovary correct? Is this also the Pistil? If not what am I missing from it? Also I am having trouble defining the difference between Gymnosperm and Angiosperms? I know Angiosperms are flowering plants and Gymnosperm are conifers but that is really it any differences or similarities would be appreciated. A conifers flower is it's cone whether male or female correct? Thank you for helping me clear this up.
