and travel down to reach the ovule.

What are some examples of pollinators?
Previous word: Sepal- The outer parts of the flower that surround the growing bud. (often green and leaf-like.)
Importance of Pollinators
Worldwide, approximately 1,000 plants grown for food, beverages, fibers, spices, and
medicines need to be pollinated by animals in order to produce the goods on which
we depend.
...INCLUDING CHOCOLATE!!!
Seed Dispersal-
When seeds are moved away from the parent plant.
Pollen lands on the stigma of a flower of the same species.
Pollen travels down into the ovary.
The pollen fertilizes the ovule.
The ovule becomes a seed and the ovary can form a fruit.
What are some ways seeds are dispersed?
Wind, water, gravity, and animals!
Seed dispersal by:
Pollination
When pollen is moved from plant to plant to produce more plants or fruits.
Why is it important for seeds to be moved from the parent plant?
Parent plants are already using the area they are growing in. They are using that space, the nutrients, the water, and are shading the area around them. It would be hard for sunlight to get to the new seeds.
Angiosperm-
A flowering plant.
