What Are the Common Forms of Plant Reproduction?

Plant fertilization or reproduction is the union of male and female reproductive cells to produce a fertilized egg (zygote). Reproduction in plants is a petty straight forward process that is similar for flowering plants and seed-bearing plants. Here is a breakdown of four generalized steps. Step 1: Pollination - Normally, pollen contains male gametes. The pollen deposits on a plant's stigma that becomes part of the pistil. This process is called pollination. Step 2: Germination - Within just a few minutes, the pollen tubes start growing toward the egg cell. The tubes provide a path for the sperm carried in the pollen to reach the egg. Step 3: Penetration of the Ovule - Pollen tubes penetrate the ovule that contains the female gametes. Step 4: Fertilization - Sperm travels down the pollen tubes and fertilize the egg. Most angiosperms experience double fertilization, where both an egg and the polar nuclei in the embryonic sac is fertilized.


Match the words with their meanings. We look at the common plant parts that are responsible for reproduction.
