What does the female reproductive part consist of?

The rod like section that supports the stigma
Contains the female gametes inside ovules
The transfer of pollen from an anther to a stigma, so that the male gametes can fertilise the female gametes in sexual reproduction

Scented flowers and nectaries
Big, sticky pollen grains
How are plants adapted for wind pollination?
Small, dull petals
No nectaries or strong scents
Lots of pollen grains (they are small and light)
