Pollination is the transfer of pollen from the stamens to the stigma.

There are two types of pollination:

  • animal pollination
  • and wind pollination.


Plants with colourful petals attract animals.
Animals are attracted to the flower to drink the nectar.

Pollen from the stamens stick to the animal’s body.
When the animal travels to another plant, some pollen is transferred.

This is called animal pollination.


Trees and grasses don’t have colourful petals to attract animals.
Trees and grasses use wind pollination to reproduce.

The wind blows pollen from the staments to the stigma.
This is called wind pollination.
