Primary Consumers: Definition & Examples

1. Primary Consumers: Definition & Examples

Learn all about primary consumers and become familiar with some examples of them. After reading the lesson, the quiz will test your knowledge of primary consumers and your ability to recognize examples.

Pollen Tube: Growth, Function & Formation

2. Pollen Tube: Growth, Function & Formation

During the fertilization process, some plants utilize a pollen tube. In this lesson, we'll explore how a pollen tube forms, how it functions and how it grows.

Male Reproductive Organs in Plants: Structure & Function

3. Male Reproductive Organs in Plants: Structure & Function

When you look at the flowers in your garden, the last thing that comes to mind is their sex-life, but it should! This lesson will focus on the male reproductive organs in plants and then will go over plant reproduction to show how it all works.

An Angiosperm Life Cycle: Flowering Plant Reproduction

4. An Angiosperm Life Cycle: Flowering Plant Reproduction

When you think of how plants reproduce, you probably think of flowers. We will look at how flowering plants use specialized reproductive structures to complete an alternation of generations life cycle.

Double Fertilization in Angiosperms: Definition & Process

5. Double Fertilization in Angiosperms: Definition & Process

You may already know that fertilization is when an egg and sperm cell fuse to create a new individual, but do you know what double fertilization is? It is a process that is unique to angiosperms, and you can learn about it in this lesson.

What Is Pollination in Plants? - Definition & Types

6. What Is Pollination in Plants? - Definition & Types

This lesson will focus on the important process of pollination in plants. The lesson will also explain the types of pollination and how the environment and animals are involved in pollination.

Pollination Process: Male & Female Flower Components

7. Pollination Process: Male & Female Flower Components

In this lesson, we'll learn about the pollination process and the components in plants that make this possible. We'll also learn about the various forms of pollination and how they work.

Asexual Reproduction in Plants: Advantages, Disadvantages & Types

8. Asexual Reproduction in Plants: Advantages, Disadvantages & Types

Plants are successful because they have evolved to have a variety of ways to reproduce. In this lesson, we will examine asexual reproduction in plants to learn the types, as well as the pros and cons of this means of reproduction.

Insect Resistance in Crops: Morphologic, Biochemical & Physical Characteristics

9. Insect Resistance in Crops: Morphologic, Biochemical & Physical Characteristics

In this lesson, we'll be looking at the adaptations that make many plants naturally resistant to insect attacks. Here, we'll describe the morphologic, biochemical, and physical characteristics of crop plants that help them resist insects.
