Pollination Hydrophilia (By Water)

What is the pollination hydrophilia? Concept and definition

The pollination hidrofilia is a class of crossed pollination produced by a abiotic factor: the water.

Pollination Hydrophilia

The water fulfills tasks within the process of the pollination. The pollenizers are divided in two great groups: the biotic agents, within whom the animal, insects and birds enter; and the abiotic ones, within that one is, for example, the water. It is through this resource that is realised a pollination hydrophilia.

This mechanism of pollination, considered €œnatural€, he is quite simple: pollen travels naturally in the water to find the feminine organ and to carry out the fertilization. In certain cases, the drops of rain can sprinkle and transfer grains towards the stigma of the own species. In others, the pollen of a flower can float until arriving at the feminine organ, or to move through water obstacles for would find with the stigmata.

Although it is not a form of very habitual reproduction, hidrofilia is used by some species angiospermaes hydrophilias as Potamogeton striatus (weeds food) and P. pusillus, marine Najas - a marine plant or pinito of water (Ceratophyllum demersum), all of them species that can be in moist soils of our country. Pollen, in these cases, is of flexible, sticky aspect and with filaments.

Other types of pollination

In addition to the pollination hydrophilia they exist a great variety of types of pollination, such as:

Crossed pollination

Abiotic pollination

Anemophilous pollination

Biotic pollination

Pollination entom³fila

Pollination ornit³fila

Pollination zo³fila
