Plants use sunlight to produce sugar. Flowering plants make some of this sugar available to animals in the form of nectar (a sweet liquid found in flowers) and fruit . 1. Why do plants provide bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other animals with nectar? Plants provide these animals with nectar for food to eat as well as allowing them to collect pollen from the flower and transport it flower to flower for reproduction. 2. Why do plants provide animals with fruits such as strawberries, apples, and mangoes? Plants provide animals with fruit not only for food but for the transportation of seeds from after the animal eats and deposits the fruit. Gizmo Warm-up Plants don’t produce nectar and delicious fruit just to be nice. As you will learn, bees and other pollinators play a critical role in helping plants to reproduce. Fruits play a role in allowing plants to spread to new locations. The Pollination: Flower to Fruit Gizmo™ will take you through the reproductive cycle of flowering plants.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
