Pollination

Pollination process occurs when pollen grains from the male part of one flower (anther) are transferred to the female part (stigma) of another flower. Once pollination occurs, the fertilized flowers produce seeds, which enable the associated plant to reproduce and/or form fruit.

Pollination is important because it leads to the production of fruits we can eat, and seeds that will create more plants. … Pollination is the transfer of pollen grains from one flower to another. Many insects help move pollen between flowers and act as “pollinators”.

Plants depend on pollination. Nearly ninety per cent of wild flowering plants need pollinators like bees to transfer pollen for successful sexual reproduction. … Pollinators consequently play a key role in regulating ecosystem services supporting food production, habitats and natural resources.
