Characteristics of
HummingbirdPollinated Flowers

thinner longer stigma


open like a spike
offers nectar
Honey eater will have pollen at the back of

Brown, pointed downwards and in the


evening releases a yeasty smell
At night, bush mouse will be attracted to
the flower
Bush mouse will carry the pollen on its
nose

Protea humiflora
-

Durian tree

Flower structure
Male and female open at different times to
prevent self pollination
Stamens curl back and release stamen
Petals are advertisements to animals to
carry pollen from one flower to another

blooms at night
and tended by food bats

Fig trees

produces flowers in sprays


sprout between the leaves
stiff structures
to reach the nectar, has to be strong
Lemurs have a lot of strenth
Black lemur (male)
Longer tongues and enable them to drink
from the palms deep nectar
Lemurs move great distance and bring the
nectar along
Only when they drink from a seconf
travellers palm, then the deed is done.
contruct flowers with nectar embedded
deep in the flower
arriving bee will brush the stamen with its
back
when all pollen is gone, the stamen is
loosen and the messenger will knock it off
stigma is exposed and has collected many
pollen grain trasferred by the bees
white arrows on petals
hover flies are the only tongue that can
reach the nectar
longest feeding implement in the animal
kingdom
marking is important for the tongue

releases pollen lavishly


lives in the hills
butterfly has a liking to the color of red
like birds

relationship with the wasp


fig tree carries flowers in small knobs

Orchids
-

Corpse Plant,
Helicodiceros
muscivorus

Flowers reproduce very closely


Male wasp into thinking it is a female
wasp
Female wasp gives out a sweet smell as
just like the orchid
Pollen from the orchid gets stuck on the
male wasp
Male wasp flies off and deposits the pollen
on another orchid
Hairs on the orchids are downwards
Pollen will get stuck on the male wasp at
the rear, as he mates
Orchids mimicry attracts male wasps who
wants to mate
Flies and ants help to pollinate
Bogus corpse
Foul smell
Flies are attracted
Within are full of flowers
Above, male and below, female flowers,
between are spikes
Flies are carrying cargos of pollen as the
have visited other plants of the same kind
Pollen brushes off them onto the stigmas
The spike discourage them from getting
out as flies dont fly at night
At night, the male flowers shed their
pollen and the spikes of the barricade
shrivel
By morning, flies are free to go and each
takes pollen from the load of flowers
