    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!
