A recent survey has revealed that only a small percentage of the population of the world understands the process of Pollination or the diversity of beneficial animals involved in the process. For most humans, the world pollen means allergies and bees mean STING. Well for their knowledge, every one out of the three bites you eat, you should be thankful to the very pests you shoo away or kill-the bee, the bat, insects and animals otherwise known as pollinators. Pollination is a natural process which involves the transfer of pollen grains from the anthers (male part of a flower) to the Stigma (female part).There are two types of Pollination depending on their method by which they were pollinated. They are self-Pollination and cross-Pollination. Self-Pollination is within the same plant, whether biotic or abiotic. Cross-Pollination is between different plants of same species. Unlike Self-Pollination, Cross-Pollination alters genes producing healthier individuals. Pollinators are the biotic agents which transfer the pollen from anthers to stigma of plants of same species to achieve fertilisation. The study of Pollinators is Ant ecology. The most common and recognised type of pollinators are Bees. They are simply adapted to it. They carry electrostatic charge which helps in pollination. In bees as well Honey bees…show more content…
It has also brought about fear in the world. The decline of pollinators adversely affects various aspects of the economy of the world such as biodiversity. The potential of the decline of pollinators is very serious. Plants as we all know form the crux of our existence and the existence of the ecosystem. The disruption in pollination caused by the decline of pollinators will lead to the rapid decline in certain plant species which only cross pollinate. Thus, knocking – on its effects to the animals and birds depending on them and thereby resulting in the complete destruction of
