Class 10 Biology How Do Organisms Reproduce Pollination

Pollination

Transfer of pollen grains from anther to stigma is termed as Pollination. This transfer of pollen grains occurs with the help of pollinating agents like wind, water, insects, birds etc.

There are 2 types of pollination:

  • Self pollination
    • Transfer of pollen grains from anther to stigma of the same flower
  • Seen in leguminous plants like pea
  • Cross pollination
    • Transfer of pollen grains from anther of one plant to stigma of the another plant
    • Seen in large number of plants like onions, broccoli etc..
