Pollination

All about flowers
  • Flowers are vital to the reproduction of flowering plants.
  • Flowers are made up of several different parts.
  • Each part is important in it’s own special way.

a little information about pollination
A little information about Pollination
  • In order to produce a new plant many flowering plants need to be pollinated.
  • Let’s learn the parts of the flower – then we can find out more about pollination.

Now we are going to look more closely at the flower. Click the arrows to find the names.

About pollination

petal
Petal
  • The petal attracts insects to visit the flower.
  • The colours that we see in the flower petals are quite different to those seen by insects, with their specialised eyes.

stigma
Stigma
  • The stigma receives the pollen from visiting insects.

stigma

  • It is one of the female parts of a flower. The others are the styleand the ovary.

style
Style
  • The style leads down to ovary.

style

  • It is another of the female parts of a flower.

ovary
Ovary
  • The ovary is located at the base of the flower
  • The three female parts of a flower are, together, called the pistil or the carpel.
  • The female parts of a flower make the seeds.

filament
Filament
  • The filament is one of the male parts of a flower.
  • The other male part is called the anther.
  • Together they are called the stamen.

anther
Anther
  • The anther is one of the male parts of a flower.
  • The shape and size of the anther will attract the correct insects.
  • The anther and filament make the pollen. Together, they are called the stamen.

sepal
Sepal
  • The sepal is usually green.
  • It is the part of the flower that protects the bud.
  • It is not part of the pollination process.

pollination
Pollination
  • In order to produce a new plant many flowering plants need to be pollinated.
  • This means that pollen, produced by the stamen, needs to reach the stigma.
slide16

The pollen must land on another plant of the same type.

  • Many plants cannot be pollinated by their own pollen.
  • This is called cross pollination.
  • Let’s find out some more!
slide17

Insects pollinate many flowering plants.

  • The flower attracts the insect by using it’s colours and smells.

The insect arrives at a flower to collect the nectar, which is a sweet liquid.

While the insect is collecting the nectar, the male parts of the flower brush it with pollen.

slide18

The insect then travels to another flower where the pollen brushes off onto the female parts of that flower.

  • If the pollen is from the same type of flower then it pollinates the visited flower.
slide19

The pollen from the first flower sticks to the sticky stigma.

  • Part of the pollen called the male cell travels down the style.
  • The male cell then enters the ovary.
  • Within the ovary the male cell joins with the ovule.
  • The plant has then been fertilised.
  • After fertilisation the seeds start to grow.
  • The ovary of the flower becomes the fruit containing the seeds.
slide20

Pollen grains land on the stigma

The male cell travels down the tube

The male cell fertilises the ovule

Now the seeds start to develop and grow.
