0

Parts of the carpel

Stigma, style, ovary

1

Parts of the stamen

Anther, filament

2

Function of the petal

Attracts insects

3

Function of the nectary

Produces nectar for insects

4

Function of the sepal

Protects flower bud

5

Function of the anther

Holds pollen (make sex cells)

6

Function of the ovary

Where the egg is kept

7

Function of the style

The pollen travels down the style to the ovary

8

Function of the stigma

Catches pollen

9

Is the carpel male or female?

Female

10

Is the stamen male or female?

Male

11

Function of the filament

To support the anther

12

Process of making a new plant?

Pollination
Fertilisation
Formation (fruit + seed developement)
Dispersal (dispersing fruit + seed)
Germination
(Pretty flowers for dis girl)

13

Explain Pollination

Transfer of pollen from anther to stigma

14

2 types of pollination?

Wind and insect

15

Explain Fertilisation

Pollen lands on stigma, grows down through style, the male and female sex cells (gametes) fuse into a zygote

16

Explain Seed formation

The zygote becomes the seed embryo, the ovary becomes the seed coat
Sometimes the ovary swells to become soft a fleshy (the fruit)

17

Explain Dispersal

Seed is brought away from plant by wind, water, animal, or self dispersal

18

Explain Germination

When seed lands in good conditions, it will develop into a plant
