      4. Pollination, the transfer of pollen from the male anther to the female stigma, must occur before seed plants can reproduce sexually. A primary function of flowers is to attract pollinators with colorful petals, scent, nectar, and pollen. II. Pollination & fertilization.

Buchmann and Barbara Gemmill}, year={} }. In angiosperms, pollination is defined as the placement or transfer of pollen from the anther to the stigma of the same flower or another flower. In gymnosperms, pollination involves pollen transfer from the male cone to the female cone. Upon transfer, the pollen germinates to form the pollen tube and the sperm for fertilizing the egg.

A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Scent glands, or osmophores, are predominantly floral secretory structures that secrete volatile substances during anthesis, and therefore act in interactions with pollinators.

Scent glands, or osmophores, are predominantly floral secretory structures that secrete volatile substances during anthesis, and therefore act in interactions with pollinators. The Leguminosae family, despite being the third largest angiosperm family, with a wide geographical distribution and diversity of habits, morphology and pollinators, has.

Ants are considered to be classical nectar thieves. In recent years, however, limited evidence has suggested that flower-visiting ants can contribute to pollination.

In this chapter, we review why pollination by ants is rare and under what circumstances it may occur. Furthermore, we elaborate on the role of floral scents for foraging ants.

The sheer wealth of facts it assembled ( species, mostly Araceae and orchids, are discussed), the excellent drawings and photographs of floral morphology and anatomy, and Vogel’s ingenious use of simple analytical methods, assure that this book will remain an important.

The pollination biology of four species of passionflower was studied in south-eastern Brazil, specifically the importance of chemical features of floral nectar, pigments and odours.

All species required pollinators to produce fruits P. alata was pollinated by bees, P. speciosa by hummingbirds, and P. galbana and P. mucronata by bats. Wind and Water Pollination. Many flowers are pollinated without the aid of animals (insect, bird, or mammal).

Some are pollinated as the currents of wind or water act as vectors. These flowers do not generally attract animal pollinators. Wind Pollination. Wind pollinator flowers may be small, no petals, and no special colors, odors, or nectar. The flowers of G.

amherstiae possess a complex system of floral glands that are crucial for the success of the pollination mechanism. The osmophore on the external surface of the lip produces the scent that attracts effective pollinators to the flowers (Mickeliunas et al., ).

This chapter presents the diversity of morphologies and substances produced by the floral glands and how they improve the pollinator’s attraction. We also describe how some angiosperms and floral visitors may have coevolved leading to specific pollination systems in some groups of plants.

pollination mutualism. • Here, headspace collection and GC-MS were used to identify and quantify the volatile organic compounds emitted by the globeflower. • Scents are produced in three different floral parts by four structures: secretory glands and flat epidermis. Skunk, (family Mephitidae), also called polecat, black-and-white mammal, found primarily in the Western Hemisphere, that uses extremely well-developed scent glands to release a noxious odour in defense.

The term skunk, however, refers to more than just the well-known striped skunk (Mephitis mephitis).The skunk family is composed of 11 species, 9 of which are found in the Western Hemisphere. Unlike the typical insect-pollinated flowers, flowers adapted to pollination by wind do not produce nectar or scent.

In wind-pollinated species, the microsporangia hang out of the flower, and, as the wind blows, the lightweight pollen is carried with it (Figure ). The role of scent glands in pollination.

The identification of anatomical features designated as “scent glands” by staining with stains that have affinity to aliphatic compounds (Curry, ) is also problematic, because this methodology again does not involve the actual measurement of scent emission from such anatomical features (nor from any other part of the flower).

The best. The Smell of Love Why do some people smell better to you? A look at how human body odor influences sexual attraction. By F. Bryant Furlow, published March 1, - last reviewed on June 9,   Scent plays a major role in cases where the pollination agents are deceived.

The deception involves mainly reproduction hues like pheromones and reproduction substrates or sites [ 3 ]. Different plants produce flowers of different colors.Many butterflies produce scents that attract the opposite sex. Many of these scents often smell like the flowers that they are attracted to and visit.

The scent of these butterfly-pollinated flowers might have evolved as an adaptation that made use of the existing attractiveness of these scents.
