Wind Pollination

Wind pollination does not rely on any animals.

It is a kind of plant pollination where wind is the distributor of the pollen.

Plants that rely on wind pollination don't need to grow big, attractive and colourful flowers or tasty fruits or nectar.

The pollen of those plants is smaller, lighter, and less sticky than the pollen of the plants that rely on animal pollination.

Wind takes care of both pollination and the spreading of the seeds. Plants that rely on this kind of polliation are typically grasses, cycads, conifers, also oaks, walnuts and chestnuts.
