  • Pollination is the act of transporting pollen grains from the male anther of a flower (stamen) to the female stigma (pistil). The objective of every living organism, including plants, is to generate offspring for the next generation. One of the ways that plants can produce offspring is by making seeds.
  • 
  • HOWEVER, not all flowers have a stamen and not all flowers have pistil. Which is a huge dilemma.
  • And this is were Pollinators come into play. They are animal that moves pollen from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma of a flower. Which supports to bring about fertilization of the ovules in the flower by the male gametes from the pollen grains.
  • Can anyone tell me about the many type of pollinators out there???
  • Bees of course, they have tiny hairs on their legs that help gather pollen and naturally stick the the flowers.
  • Let’s also not forget about Bumble Bess. Their large body's can help expose flowers to the nectar and pollen out.
  • Butterflies are my favorite pollinators! They have tongue’s that are long and slim like a straw that helps them drink nectar from the flowers. Which helps them become significant in transferring pollen in many flowers.
  • Good choice! and mine is wasp. Although they are much smaller than a Bee, they can into any kind of flowers they see.
  •  Hummingbirds drink up to two times their body weight per day. They also add a splatter of color to our landscapes.
  • Bats are also very important pollinators in the tropical and desert climate.
