In botany, a bract is a modified or specialized leaf, especially one associated with a reproductive structure such as a flower, inflorescence axis, or cone scale.
Presence of bract is called as Bracteate
Absence of bract is called as EBractetae

The flowers are developed from axils of the bract. These are leaves like structure. Bract protects the flower in the bud condition. If the bract is present, flower is called as bracteates. If the bract is absent then flower is called ‘ebracteate’. In bracteoles are also bract like structure present on pedicel of the flower between the bract and the flower. These are small and thin than the bract. It may be one or two in number. If bracteoles are present then flower is called bracteolate and if the bracteole id absent then flower is called ‘ebracteolate’.
