(b) Elephophily-Pollination affected by elephants

(c) Artificial pollination-Pollination affected by man through artificial means

Question 2.


(a) Pollination

(b) Herkogamy

(c) Cleistogamy

(d) Emasculation

(e) Fertilization


(a) Pollination: Pollination is the process of transfer of pollen grain from the anther to stigma.

(b) Herkogamy: Herkogamy is the condition of flower favouring cross pollination, in which a structural barrier around the stigma prevents self pollination.

(c) Cleistogamy: Cleistogamy is a condition favouring self pollination, in which the flower remains closed even at maturity of anther and stigma.

(d) Emasculation: Emasculation is the process of removal of anther in young flower for ensuring artificial pollination.

(e) Fertilization: The process of fusion or union of the nuclei of male and female gametes is called fertilisation.

(d) Stamens-Fall off

Question 4.

Mention any two contrivances in flowers which favour cross-pollination.


Contrivances in flowers which favour cross-pollination:
