  • Insect pollinators visit flowers with UV-reflecting colors, such as yellow and blue, most often.
  • Seeds are spread by animals through ingestion and subsequent deposition in a new location.
  • The feathery or hairy structures of seeds, such as pappi or coma, help them blow away in the wind.
  • Seeds with a larger surface area stay in the air longer due to increased air resistance.
  • The bright colors of the petals serve to attract pollinators, such as insects and animals.
  • Pollen is produced in the anther of a flower.
  • The male part of a flower is called the stamen.
  • During fertilization, the sperm fertilizes the egg cell inside the ovary, resulting in zygote formation.
  • The ovary of a flower becomes the fruit after fertilization.
