What is pollination?

All plants with flowers completely rely on two types of pollination for reproduction. Self-pollination is the primary type and occurs when pollen grains fall directly from the anther into the stigma within a single flower. Cross-pollination is the transfer of pollen grains from
one flower to another. Bees are important pollinators, but insects, moths, butterflies, beetles, wasps, ants, birds, bats also act as pollinators.
