What is pollination in biology
Pollination is very important role in plants. A flowering plants have many parts which are very important in pollination. Pollination occurs in many ways.
The process by which plant pollen is transferred from the male reproductive organs to the female reproductive organs to form seeds. In flowering plants, pollen is transferred from the anther(the terminal part of a stamen consisting usually of two lobes each containing two sacs in which the pollen matures) to the stigma(the part of a pistil that receives the pollen), often by the wind or by insects. In cone-bearing plants, male cones release pollen that is usually borne by the wind to the ovules of female cones.What a reproduction process!No intercourse ,no attachment.What a creation of Nature!
The transfer of pollen grains from anther to the stigma of the same flower or of a different flower.
It is of several types depending on the agent that transfer the pollen.
Anemophily: Pollination by wind

Zoophily: Pollination by animals
Ornithophily- Pollination by birds.
