Do you know your stigma from your anther?
Plant reproduction is often seen as dull and boring compared to animal reproduction but it’s actually incredibly interesting. The lastest video to be uploaded to my YouTube channel shows me dissecting a flower to help you learn about it’s anatomy and how the two processes of pollination and fertilisation occur.
If you’d like to learn more about the life cycle of a plant including seed growth and dispersal, why don’t you click here and work your way through the great animations and activities available. You could also test your knowledge of flower anatomy by trying this quick quiz.
It’s important to remember that pollination is not just carried out by bees, watch this amazing video on YouTube about ‘The Beauty of Pollination’. There is some fantastic footage of insects and birds collecting pollen from anthers.
