2 Flowering Plants A flowering plant has both male and female parts. The female part is called the pistil.The male part is called the stamen.
3 Stamen: The male reproductive structure of a flowering plant
4 Anther: the structure located on top of the stamen and carries the pollen
5 PollenPollen is the male sex cell that donates half of the DNA to make a seed.It is a powdery substance, usually orange or yellow in color, that gets carried by pollinators.
6 Filament: a thread-like part that holds up the anther
7 Pistil: the female reproductive structure of a flowering plant
8 Stigma: the sticky surface on the top of the pistil; it traps and holds the pollen
9 Style: the tube-like structure that holds up the stigma
10 Ovary: the plant part at the bottom of the flower that has ovules inside (this turns into the fruit and seeds we eat)
11 Ovules: the female sex cells inside the ovary that donate half the DNA to become the seed (They become the seeds when pollinated or fertilized by the pollen.)A baby seed!
12 Petal: the colorful flower parts that surround the reproductive structures
13 Sepal: the green petal-like parts at the base of the flower; they help protect the bud when it develops
14 Perfect: flowers that have both male and female parts (ex Perfect: flowers that have both male and female parts (ex. Roses, lilies, and pea plants)
15 Imperfect: flowers with male or female parts (ex- cucumbers, pumpkins, and melons)
16 Pollination: when pollen moves from the male parts to the female parts Pollination is the step before fertilisation in plants. Fertilisation is when the male and female gametes join to form an embryo.
