The ovule stands for the structure that is found inside the seed plants, this later develops in to the seed after the process of fertilization. Flowering plants with enclosed seeds (also known as Angiosperms) the ovule is located inside the part of the carpel, this part is known as the ovary. The ovary later on ultimately becomes the fruit.

In conifers and similar plants (also known as Gymnosperms- with naked seeds), the ovules are found open on the surface of an ovule bearing scale. This ovule scale is usually inside a cone. Before the phase of fertilization the ovule comprises of female gametophytes, integuments and the nucleus.

The structures of ovule in Gymnosperms are not all the same in structures. The unique Angiosperms exhibit double fertilization.
