Pollen

Posted by Carlos Palma (San Juan, Philippines) on 13 July 2009 in Plant & Nature.

Pollen is a fine to coarse powder consisting of microgametophytes (pollen grains), which produce the male gametes (sperm cells) of seed plants. A hard coat covering the pollen grain protects the sperm cells during the process of their movement between the stamens of the flower to the pistil of the next flower.
