Wind in the corn field (the Pollination and the Wind)

Although the polinizadoras bees and the insects pollenizers are the most important pollenizers in the majority of the cultures, they are not the only people in charge of this work. They count on the collaboration of other agents, among them, the wind.

So that it is understood how this phenomenon works, we must begin to explain how the pollination process works. The pollination consists simply of the transport of pollen grains from anthers of a flower to the stigma of another one, which does that gametas masculine is able to find gametas feminine to obtain the fertilization. Simplifying: the pollination is the transport of pollen from a plant to another one. corn field

It is worth the pain to emphasize that, in the case of the plants pollinated by the insects, the aroma and the colors of the flowers much more they are accentuated. That is due to that the pollen that they receive travels patch to the body of these insects, that they prefer to visit the most colorful and aromatic flowers.

The plants that depend on the wind do not have so showy flowers, but they own more amount of pollen, in addition to stigmata able to receive more grains and longer and flexible anthers than, when oscillating, guarantee a greater dispersion of pollen. One of these plants is the maize, that it has around 50 million grains of pollen by each plant.
