How Plants Reproduce
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Spring is a wonderful time of year. Flowers are everywhere. Blooming trees, bushes, and plants are beautiful. The air is filled with their sweet fragrances. Bees and butterflies fly from one bright bloom to another. Why do they do that?
 
2     You know, of course, that bees produce honey. They make it from nectar they gather from flowers. Nectar is a sweet and viscous liquid. It is located in plants' blossoms, leaves, and stems. Different living things use nectar as their food - bees, wasps, butterflies, moths, and even some birds and mammals! But they are not the only ones who benefit from it. Nectar-eating insects and birds also help flowering plants reproduce.
 
3     You may have observed tiny yellow grains inside some flowers. This is called pollen, and it is used by flowers to form seeds. Plants make the pollen in the saclike anthers of their flowers. The anthers are part of the stamen - the male reproductive part of flowers. The female part is called the pistil, and it includes the stigma and the ovary. The stigma receives the pollen and leads it to the ovary - the egg-bearing part of the plant. The process of moving pollen from anthers to stigma is called pollination.
