flower structure and reproduction
plants that bear flowers and fruits
part of branch on which a flower forms
leaf like - surround/protect flower before it blooms, modified leaves, under ovary
colorful part to attract insects - even mice birds and bats
methods of pollination
carried by insects or animals, or wind
MALE: anther (produces pollen)
filiment (supports the anther)
FEMALE: fused together to form a pistil, which has three parts
sticky, where pollen attackes
long tube attaches stigma to ovary - sperm travels down it!
ovules stored here - until fertilized
can only fertilize same species - sepcial chemical to prevent it!
pollen from anther fertilizes eggs on same flower
pollen is transferred to the stigma of an entirely different plant
fertilized ovules - develop into fruit
any structure that encloses and protects a seed
petals fall off, ovary is left behid, develops into fruit
pollen - anther to stigma
