Pollination is the process involving transfer of pollen grains from anthers to the stigmatic surface of gynoecium. Pollination is important to plants as the means by which the next generation is produced. The process of pollination requires a pollinator, which is the agent that moves pollen from the male anthers of a flower to the female stigma of a flower to accomplish fertilization or syngamy of the female gamete in the ovule of the flower by the male gamete from the pollen grain. The Pollenizer, which is different from the Pollinator is the plant that is a source of pollen for the pollination process.
