2 Plant ReproductionReproduction is how organisms make new individuals of the same kind.Plants (and many other organisms) can reproduce asexually and sexually.
3 FLOWERS Flowers on plants are the structures for sexual reproduction. Flowering plants are called Angiosperms.Rafflesia
4 Flower StructurePetals: Brightly colored parts of a flower. Attract animal pollinators.Sepals: Leaf like parts that surround the petals. Protect the developing flower.
5 Male Plant StructureStamen: Male reproductive part. Consists of an anther at the tip of a filament.Pollen: Male reproductive cell in plants (sperm).
6 Male Plant Structure Anther: structure that produces pollen Filament: Thin stalk topped by an anther.
7 Female Plant Structure Pistil: The female reproductive organ in the flower. Consists of an ovary, style and stigma.Stigma: Tip of the pistil where pollen collects.Style: The long tube of the pistil that transfers pollen from the stigma to the ovary.
8 Female Plant Structure Ovary: Lower part of the pistil that produces eggs inside ovules. After fertilization, it will then develop into the fruit on a plant.Ovule: Each ovule contains an egg. This will develop into a seed.
13 FertilizationInside the ovary, the sperm enters the ovule which contains an egg.The sperm fertilizes the egg.The fertilized egg develops into a seed.The structure of a seed contains a tiny plant embryo.
14 Seed Dispersal Seed are spread in many ways. Wind blown Attached to animals or passed through an animal’s digestive tractCarried by waterEjected from seed pod
15 GerminationThe seed absorbs water and prepares to sprout.The tiny embryo sprouts from the seed and continues to grow.Roots grow, followed by stems and leaves
