However, these patterns expense of producing much more pollen than is actually cannot be viewed as an adaptation to wind pollination used. Because the potential hazards pollen grains are because the spiral arrangement occurs in a number of subject to as they are transported over long distances are non-wind-pollinated plant lineages and is regarded as a enormous, wind-pollinated plants have, in the view above, characteristic of vascular plants, of which conifers are compensated for the ensuing loss of pollen through only one kind, as a whole. Therefore, the spiral happenstance by virtue of producing an amount of pollen arrangement is not likely to be the result of a direct that is one to three orders of magnitude greater than the adaptation to wind pollination. amount produced by species pollinated by insects.

of wind-pollinated plants reduce pollen waste. For
