112. PollinationOccurs when pollen has been transferred from the anther to the stigma. When the pollen grain germinates on the stigma it creates a burrow called the pollen tube as it travels toward the ovary
123.When the pollen grain reaches the ovule, fertilization occurs
134.Pollination must take place before fertilization can take place
145.The fertilized embryo will become a tiny new plant inside the seed
15PollinationTwo types of pollination are self-pollination and cross- pollination
