What is Pollination? The transfer of pollen from the anther to the stigma.Table of Contents
Pollination Process Plant grows and eventually flowers Bee/Butterfly visits flower and is dusted in pollen Bee/Butterfly visits another flower and the pollen rubs onto the stigma Flower dies and seed pod develops. Some plants develop fruit around the seed ex. Blackberry Seed dispersal A seed germinatesTable of Contents
What is Fertilization? The joining of pollen with an ovule to form a seedTable of Contents
Fertilization Process Pollen lands on stigma Pollen goes down the style and enters the ovary Fertilizes ovules Ovary swells as seed ripens Table of Contents
Seed dispersal Plants need to disperse their seeds away from themselves to stop overcrowding and to create new colonies. Nearly all seeds are produced within “fruits”. These fruits enable seeds to be dispersed Table of Contents in a variety of ways.

Vocabulary (Female Organs) Stigma- the sticky part of the pistil that pollen sticks to Style- is long outgrowth of the ovary that collects pollen from the stamens Ovary- the base part of the pistil that holds the ovules Ovules- the unfertilized seeds of the plantTable of Contents
Vocab. cont’ Pistil (carpel) - the female part of the flower that contains the stigma, ovary, style, and ovules Anther- the part of the flower that holds theMale Organs pollen Filament- the long thread-like part of the flower that holds the anthers out so insects can get to the pollen Table of
Vocab. cont’ Petal- the colorful part of the flower that attracts insects and other pollinators Receptacle- the top of the flower stalk that bears the flower parts Sepal- the part that covers the outside of a flower bud to protect the flower before it opens Germinate- to develop into a plant or individual, as a seed, spore, or bulb.Table of Contents
