How Do Flowers Help Plants Reproduce?

A flower is the reproductive part of plants. It contains the male part-stamen –male part of the flower and pistil – female part of the flower, which is involved in the reproduction process in all flowering plants of the kingdom Plantae.

The process of reproduction in plants is carried out in three stages.

  1. Pollination: The reproduction in plants begins from the process of pollination. In this process, the pollen grains are transferred between the anther and stigma of the same flower or of another plant. There are different types of pollinating agents including birds, insects, animals, wind, and water.

  2. Formation of Zygote: The second stage of reproduction is carried on with the zygote formation by the fusion of male and female gametes.

  3. Formation of Fruits: Fertilization is the final stage of reproduction in which the embryo is developed from the zygote develops into an embryo, which later swells up and develops into a fruit.
