Pollination

Barbara J. Feldman

Pollination is the act of plant fertilization that occurs when pollen is moved from flower to
flower. Pollination can be done by the wind, insects, birds or even by people. Pollination is
important to our environment because beautiful flowers rely on it, but also because so much of our food comes from plants that require pollination to produce fruit. Bees and butterflies are famous pollinators, but all sorts of creatures also help out.
