Pollination is the act of transferring pollen grains from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma. Pollination is a very important part of the life cycle of plants. Insects, birds, bats and the wind take pollen between flowering plants, which means the plants can make seeds and reproduce.
Its significance is to carry the pollen grains to the stigma for the process of fertilisation. It is of two types selfpollination (from the anther to the stigma of the same flower) and cross pollination(anther to the stigma of another flower of a different plant of same species).
