Answer :

The arrangement of veins and the veinlets in the lamina of leaf is termed as venation.


When the veinlets form a network, the venation is termed as reticulate.


When the veins run parallel to each other within a lamina, the venation is termed as parallel.


Leaves of dicotyledonous plants generally possess reticulate venation, while parallel venation is the characteristic of most monocotyledons.


There are a few exceptions like Smilax and Discorea are monocots with reticulate venation and Calophyllum and Eryngium are dicots with parallel venation.
