POLLINATION

WHAT IS IT?

Like all living organisms, plants have a single purpose: to transmit their genetic information and to create the next generation! To do this, pollination is a necessary process 

 

Pollination is the process of transporting pollen produced by the anther (the male part of a flower) to the stigma (the female part of the flower) of a plant of the same species. After the pollen grain lands in the stigma, it is then led to the ovary. The pollen then fertilizes the female flower, resulting in the production of seed, fruit and the next generation of plants.

WHO ARE POLLINATORS?

Birds, bats, butterflies and some others mammals are  pollinators. Insects are the main culprits for most of the pollination that affects our daily lives.

Among these insect pollinators are  the 20,000 species of bees worldwide, many species of butterflies, flies, wasps and beetles.

Pollinators don't provide this magnificent service on purpose. The opposite. They visit the flowers to feed on their nectar or pollen and thus transfer pollen grains from  one flower to another.
