Gynoecium (from Ancient Greek , gyne, meaning woman, and , oikos, meaning house) is most commonly used as a collective term for all carpels in a flower. In many cases it may also include other parts of the flower. Traditionally a carpel is defined as an appendage that bears and encloses ovules. Carpels are thought to be phylogenetically derived from ovule-bearing leaves or leaf homologues (megasporophylls), which evolved to form a closed structure containing the ovules. They do this by folding and fusing at their edges to form a chamber in which the ovules develop. In many flowers, several to many carpels are thought to be "fused" into a structure that sometimes may resemble a single carpel. The term gynoecium is useful because it refers to the ovule-producing structure in a flower, whether it is a single carpel, multiple unfused carpels or multiple "fused" carpels. In many flowers, the gynoecium is the innermost whorl of structures and is surrounded by the androecium (stamens) and then by the perianth (all the petals and sepals). In imperfect or incomplete flowers the androecium and perianth, respectively, may be absent. The gynoecium is often referred to as female because it gives rise to female (egg-producing) gametophytes, however, strictly speaking sporophytes do not have sex, only gametophytes do. Flowers that bear a gynoecium but no androecium are called carpellate. Flowers lacking a gynoecium are called staminate.

Ver el carpelo (hoja femenina) de gimnospermas en: Gymnospermae
Los carpelos son hojas modificadas que forman la parte reproductiva femenina de la flor de las plantas angiospermas, el conjunto de todos los carpelos se llama gineceo, el gineceo puede estar conformado por uno o más pistilos. Por su carácter de hojas portadoras de megásporas (o macrósporas, o esporas femeninas), las células por cuya multiplicación se forma el gametofito femenino (el saco embrional), los carpelos son megasporófilos (o macrosporófilos).
