This is Daffodil Pollen Under a Microscope! Palynology - Pollination

in plants •  last month

The daffodil pollen grains are surrounded by a hard shell to protect its nucleus and DNA.
Pollen is made from the male plants and trees in order to fertilize a female plant or tree.
The pollen grains are actually whole male organisms that will produce sperm cells to fertilize the females.
It is the plant's way of reproducing, not too unlike the reproductive process of humans and animals.

Flowers often use bright colors and scents to attract insects with the single purpose of getting help with transferring pollen.
When the female plant is fertilized by the pollen, they produce seeds or fruits (which are basically their offspring.)

This video is recorded through our phase contrast microscope.
