parts of a flower

The male reproductive part of a flower is known as the stamen. It comprises a long tube, the filament, and has a pollen-producing structure towards the terminal. This oval-shaped structure is called the anther. The anther comprises sac-like structures known as microsporangia which produce pollen for the process of pollination to occur. Hence, Microsporangia is the site of production of the immature male gametophytes of seed plants – pollen grains.
