What is a conifer?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What is a conifer?       
What is a conifer? Conifers produce their seeds without the aid of flowers, whereas deciduous trees are actually flowering plants. Conifers produce cones, which are whorls of papery scales packed tightly together to protect the seeds developing inside them.

Male and female cones are produced separately, and pollen shed from the male cones fertilizes the egg cells and leads to the production of seeds.

The seeds, which are usually winged, are released in dry weather when the scales of the cone open up and release them. Most conifers keep their needle-like leaves throughout the winter, although a few types are deciduous.
