A closer look at the cells and tissues involved in reproduction can help us to understand this vital process.
Comparing the flower structure of different angiosperms
Study the detailed anatomy of flowers by dissection and the general form by studying images of flowers. Deduce mechanisms of pollination.
Observing the growth of pollen tubes
Observe the germination of pollen grains from a range of flowers in sucrose solutions with differing concentrations of mineral salts medium.
