Lecture 13: POLLINATION:  Lecture 13: POLLINATION Remember exam is on Thursday March 18 Review session: Wed. at 5:00 pm, 0226 HJP Today…. Value of sexual reproduction Pollination and fertilization Coevolution Pollen Types of pollinators Rewards and attractants for pollinators Awesome video! What is pollination?:  What is pollination? Pollination: The transfer of pollen from the male anther to the female stigma Why is pollination important?:  Why is pollination important? Sexual reproduction is important for evolution: Sexual reproduction produces variable offspring, creating diversity and variation among populations (shuffling of genes) You need variation for Natural Selection to occur Sexual reproduction is advantageous to an organism only if it happens with someone other than itself! Outbreeding = good! (inbreeding = bad…) Sexual reproduction:  Sexual reproduction In animals: It’s easy because you have separate male and female individuals. In flowering plants: Not so easy, because most flowers have both male and female parts in them, called perfect flowers. So flowering plants have evolved special ways to insure outbreeding/outcrossing – and to prevent inbreeding. Function of flower:  Function of flower To attract pollinators with colorful petals, scent, nectar and pollen Carpel/ Overview of floral organs:  Overview of floral organs Reproductive floral organs: female:  Reproductive floral organs: female Carpel or pistil – female reproductive organs; contains: Stigma – is where pollen sticks to Style – is the long tube that connects stigma to ovary Ovary – enlarged structure at the base of carpel/pistil where the ovules are located; it will become the fruit. Ovules – contains female gametophyte, becomes the seed Plants have style! carpel or pistil ovary Reproductive floral organs: male:  Reproductive floral organs: male Stamen – male floral organ, consists of: Anther – part of the stamen that produces pollen Filament – stalk-like structure that holds anther Pollen – immature male gametophyte Non-reproductive floral organs:  Non-reproductive floral organs Petals – whorl of flower organs that are often brightly colored to attract pollinators Corolla – whorl of petals in a flower Sepals – whorl of leaf-like organs outside the corolla; help protect the unopened flower bud. Calyx – whorl of sepals in a flower Tepals – when sepals and petals look the same Pollination and Fertilization:  Pollination and Fertilization Pollen contains TWO nuclei: a sperm nucleus and tube nucleus Sperm nucleus is protected in gametophyte tissue (pollen can travel in the air) Pollination and Fertilization:  Pollination and Fertilization For pollen sperm to successfully fertilize the egg, there must be pollination: a method to get the pollen from the male anther to the stigma. Pollen sticks to the stigma, starts growing a pollen tube Fertilization begins when tube begins to grow toward the egg Double Fertilization:  Double Fertilization Double fertilization occurs: One sperm nucleus (1n) fertilizes the egg, producing a zygote (2n)  which becomes the plant embryo inside the seed Another sperm nucleus fuses with the polar nuclei, resulting in a triploid endosperm (3n) Endosperm is a source of food for the young embryo. Endosperm Strategies to avoid self-pollination:  Strategies to avoid self-pollination Perfect flowers have both male and female organs, so plants have strategies to avoid self-pollination: 1. Timing – male and female structures mature at different times 2. Morphological – structure of male and female organs prevents self-pollination (imperfect flower) 3. Biochemical – chemical on surface of pollen and stigma/style that prevent pollen tube germination on the same flower (incompatible) How do plants get pollen from one plant to another?:  How do plants get pollen from one plant to another? Because plants are rooted in the ground, they must use different strategies: WIND POLLINATION: Gymnosperms and some flowering plants (grasses, trees) use wind pollination. Flowers are small, grouped together Not a very efficient method (too chancy and wasteful) ANIMALS:  ANIMALS Many flowering plants rely on animals for cross-pollination: Insects – bees, wasps, flies, butterflies, moths Birds – hummingbirds, honey creepers Mammals – bats, mice, monkeys Even some reptiles and amphibians! Coevolution:  Coevolution Coevolution – interactions between two different species as selective forces on each other, resulting in adaptations that increase their interdependency. Animal-flowering plant interaction is a classic example of coevolution: 1. Plants evolve elaborate methods to attract animal pollinators 2. Animals evolved specialized body parts and behaviors that aid plant pollination A word about pollen…:  A word about pollen… The shape and form of pollen is related to its method of pollination… Insect-pollinated species have sticky of barbed pollen grains Wind-pollinated species is lightweight, small and smooth (corn pollen) Palynology: the study of pollen:  Palynology: the study of pollen Palynology is useful in many fields: Petroleum geology – fossil pollen can determine if a field will have oil-rich deposits Archeology – studying ancient pollen samples, archeologists can determine agricultural practices, diet, etc. Anthropology – uses of pollen in rituals Criminology – to determine the whereabouts of an individual, examine pollen clinging to clothes Aerobiology – to determine what plants cause hay fever and allergic reactions – in landscaping Animal pollinators: Bees:  Animal pollinators: Bees Bees – are the most important group of flower pollinators They live on the nectar and feed larvae, also eat the pollen. Bees are guided by sight and smell See yellow and blue colors, also ultraviolet light (not red) Flowers have “honey guides” and bee landing platforms.. Butterflies and moths:  Butterflies and moths Also guided by sight and smell Butterflies can see red and orange flowers Usually shaped as a long tube because of insect’s proboscis – to get nectar Moth-pollinated flowers are usually white or pale, with sweet, strong odor – for night pollination. Flies and beetles:  Flies and beetles Flies like flowers that smell like dung or rotten meat. Lay their eggs there, but larvae die due to lack of food Beetles pollinate flowers that are dull in color, but have very strong odor Birds:  Birds Birds have a good sense of color, they like yellow or red flowers… But birds do not have a good sense of smell, so bird-pollinated flowers usually have little odor. Flowers provide fluid nectar in greater quantities than insects Hummingbird-pollinated flowers usually have long, tubular corolla Pollen is large and sticky Mammals: bats and mice:  Mammals: bats and mice Bats pollinate at night, so flowers are white Mouse-pollinated flowers are usually inconspicuous, they open at night Why do animals pollinate plants?:  Why do animals pollinate plants? They get a REWARD: food! In exchange for moving their pollen to another flower Nectar – a sugary solution produced in special flower glands called nectaries Nectar concentration matches energy requirements of the pollinator: bird- and bee-pollinated flowers have different sugar conc. Pollen – is high in protein, some bees and beetles eat it. Flowers can produce two kinds of pollen: a normal and a sterile, but tasty, kind, for the insect. Getting the pollinator’s attention:  Getting the pollinator’s attention Plants advertise their pollen and nectar rewards with Colors – bees see blue, yellow, UV; while birds see red. Bats don’t see well, so flowers are white. Nectar or honey guides – a visual guide for pollinator to locate the reward (pansy flower) Aromas – for insects, nectar. Can also be carrion or dung smell Plant Mimicry:  Plant Mimicry Some plants take advantage of the sex drive of certain insects… Certain orchids look like female wasps, and even smell like them! Males try to mate with them, and in the process they pollinate the plant The orchid gets pollinated, but the male wasp only gets frustrated! Watch video, take notes, questions:  Watch video, take notes, questions What causes “hay fever”? __________________ What carries pollen released by grasses (corn)? ________ A flower with both male/female structures is a ___flower What increases genetic variability in a population?____ What color flowers do birds pollinate? Bees? Moths? Why are bird-pollinated flowers usually odorless?______ What time of the day do bats pollinate?______________ What two rewards do insects get from flowers?________ Flies and butterflies reach the nectar using a long ______ Flies pollinate flowers that smell like rotting __________ Why do some orchids look and smell like wasps?______
