Pollination and Fertilization In plants, sperm and egg cells are produced from haploid cells via mitosis, not from diploid cells by meiosis as in animals. Plant sperm develop from multicellular pollen grains . Pollen grains have a protective coat and are carried to flowers by wind, water, or insects or other animals. In the process of pollination , the pollen grain interacts with the stigma , which is the top of the carpel. The carpel is the female reproductive structure containing the ovules. If the interaction is successful, a pollen tube begins to grow and extend down toward the egg cells in the ovules.

Figure 23-3a Pollen grains are microscopic but multicellular. This nucleus and cytoplasm (pink material) manage growth of the pollen tube This cell will divide to form sperm Tough coat There are two cells here, one inside the other: Pollen interacts with pistel/carpel (female part – stigma) through pollination by wind, etc – have species-specific interactions (similar to bindin-fertilizin interactions) (egg w/ sperm)

Pollination and Fertilization One sperm fuses with the egg to form the diploid zygote. The other fuses with the maternal cell with two haploid nuclei to form a triploid cell in an event known as double fertilization . The triploid cell divides repeatedly to form a nutritive tissue called endosperm . This tissue (like the yolk in animal eggs) stores nutrients inside the seed for embryonic development, seed germination, and early seedling growth.
