  • The Use of Pollen Analysis in Extracting Archaeological Data

    widely-known of these techniques‚ possibly because of its attractive nature‚ is pollen analysis - a technique developed in the early years of the twentieth century by‚ like so many archaeological techniques‚ a geologist -- the Norwegian Lennart van Post. To understand the technique and the uses to which it may be put‚ we must first examine the biological nature of the material itself. Because of a hard outer shell - the exine - pollen is particularly resistant to chemical attack and will survive in most

  • Pollination

    anything in the world has and how it works. A process that is familiar is called pollination. Meaning pollen is transferred in plants; it enables fertilization and sexual reproduction (Russel et al‚ 2010). Pollen grains contain the male sperm‚ which are known as the gametes (sperm) to where the female gamest are carried in the carpel‚ which in this case the gymnosperms directly apply the pollen to the ovule itself (Russel et al‚ 2010). Pollination is a very important step in the history of reproduction

  • Important Facts about a Plant

    Botany Essay Questions 1.

Pollen grains are completely different and unique for each flower‚ they carry the male and female genetic information and it is split exactly 50/50. The transfer is carried out by pollinators‚ which include bees‚ wasps‚ flies‚ butterflies‚ moths‚ several species
