Adaptations of wind pollinated flowers are as follows:
- Both the stigmas and anthers are exserted.
- Pollen grains are dry, very small sized, non-sticky and unwettable, so that they can be carried by wind to long distances.
- Stigmas is hairy, feathery (grasses) or branched to catch the wind borne pollens.
Pollination by insects is called entomophily, adaptations for insect pollinated flowers are as follows:
- Insect pollinated flowers produce nectar, which attracts the pollinators for feeding.
- Some flowers produce edible pollen grains.
- Flowers are fragrant and emit scent and odour.
- Flowers are bright coloured.
