Definition Of pollen

a fine powdery substance, typically yellow, consisting of microscopic grains discharged from the male part of a flower or from a male cone. Each grain contains a male gamete that can fertilize the female ovule, to which pollen is transported by the wind, insects, or other animals.

The stigmas were then pollinated with pollen from a flower whose anther had dehisced that day.

Example Of pollen

  • pollen count

  • Bees occasionally collect olive pollen , but wind is the primary pollination vector.

  • Each experiment was carried out on flower heads which had been protected from foreign pollen by bagging.

  • Females produced more pollen per anther than males, and pollen size was the same in both sexes.

  • Freshly harvested pollen was dusted onto a microscope slide with a brush to which four or five drops of stain were added.
