Some angiosperm flowers are capable of self pollination However when they are pollinated by bees plants receive a benefit they cannot achieve on their own What is this benefit?
When angiosperms are pollinated by bees, the pollen which they receive is usually from a different plant. By pollinating the flower with pollen from a different plant, the bees are increasing the genetic diversity of the offspring. If self-fertilisation in angiosperms does occur, the offspring will be clones of their parents.

Bees of all varieties pollenate flowers, but not all bees do so. This may seem a contradiction, but only the worker bees pollinate, not the queens or drones.
Bees are attracted to flowers by their bright colours and their desire to collect nectar. Nectar tends to be found close to the base of the petals and as the bee attempts to reach it the bee brushes against the male stamens of the flower, which deposit pollen on to its fur. When the bee flies to ano…ther flower the same process occurs and some of the pollen which was already present on its fur may brush against the female parts of this flower and then serve to fertilise it.

Bees are attracted to flowers because they supply them with nectar. During the process of gathering nectar the pollen of the flower sticks to the bee and is carried to other flowers so inducing pollination.
Cut of its Tips before it flowers or pollinate it yourself early on in the flowering cycle with the pollen from the plant you want to pollinate it with. PS. you are not god destroying the genetic integrity of plants (Hybridising) should only be done with thought and caution. And in a maintained cont…rolled environment for a good reason. Dont let it escape into the wild if it should not be there. "God" is your environment. (MORE)
When bees pollinate flowers when they visit a flower, pollen from that flower sticks to the bee. The bee flies to another flower of the same type and pollen that was stuck to the bee gets brushed onto the pistil of the flower. The flower is now pollinated and will begin to develop seeds and fruit.

Genetic diversity is promoted through cross pollination amongst theoffspring. The reason for sexual reproduction is to increase thenumber of offspring that are produced.
They pollinate all sorts of flowers especially the walnut tree. They like to feed off walnuts.
pollen from one flower or plant can fertilize the eggs of the same flower or the eggs of another flower on the same plant. another definition is both male and female reproductive structures.
because they need the nectar to make their honey...people say that they make the honey and we make the money.so that they can be rich.
Bees do not ' know' anything. They just fly from flower to flower gathering pollen and nectar to take back home and feed baby bees. In the process, bees accidentally leave a wee bit of that pollen on other flowers - just enough to pollinate them.
Night-flowering, other-pollinated, and wind-pollinated flowers are those which do not need to be pollinated by bees. For example, night-flowering plants may be pollinated by bats, beetles or flies whereas the wind takes responsibility for less bright-colored, less sweet-scented herbaceous flora.
the pollen of the flower combine with the stigma of the same flower or of another flower but in the same plant to make new generation
The benefit to the plant is that it is fertilized and can produce the seeds and fruit. Without pollination there would be no next generation of plant.
it is the transfer of pollen grains from the anthers to the stigma of the same flower
Yes they suck up the nectar from the flower and take it back to the hive and make honey.
that is like asking, "Why can't I fertilize myself?" Think about it, we don't alone have the right combination of... um... well, sperm. Can a guy and another male have a child? No, why? because man alone doesn't have the right combination of sperm in his body, the same way for a female and another f…emale... they can't have a baby. That is why there are men AND women.

Yes , a chili plant [ Capsicum spp] is pollinated by bees. But indoor gardeners needn't despair. The chili plant responds well to hand pollination.
The rose is a cross pollinating flower, with many animals collecting the pollen and going on to fertilise other flowers.
By having the pistils form a few days after the stamens do. . In some plants, a toxin called S-RNase poisons the pollen tube if the pollen and pistil are too closely related, thus preventing inbreeding.. Credit: Nicolle Rager Fuller, National Science Foundation
I need the answer from you'll ................ pleas give me an answer for this question........................................
no actually butterflys do it too. Moths do it. pretty much every insect or bug does, BUT only bees use it to make honey
Generally speaking cross-pollination (moving pollen from the flower of one plant to the flower of another plant) is considered better than self-pollination. Continual self-pollination of plants results in inbreeding (although sometimes a good thing) and very little genetic divergance. This means th…at populations of inbred plants are less likily to be able to adapt to climatic or environmental change than those which have a large gene pool. (MORE)
Getting nutrients and guaranteeing food sources are reasons why insects pollinate flowers and plants. For example, honeybees consume nectar while they move from flower to flower and simultaneously transport pollen between differently gendered plant (female, male).
Bees pollinate the majority of fruits, flowers and vegetables. Theywill not pollinate grains such as corn and wheat, firs or soybeans.
There are over 100 different plants that are pollinated by beeseach year. Some of these plants include bucket orchids, strawberrytrees, and arrowleaf clovers.
Bumble bees indeed do pollinate plants. In fact because they have a longer proboscis they can pollinate some plants that honey bees can't.
Plants do not have eggs, they have seeds, but yes, plants can pollinate their own seeds.
A bee visits a flower to get nectar from the nectaries. As it does so it brushes against the stamens and the pollen sticks to the hairs on the bee's body. When it visits the next flower some of the pollen is brushed off on to the flower's stigma, pollinating the flower.Bees will tend to keep visitin…g the same type of flower for as long as nectar is available, thus flowers are pollinated by their own species. (MORE)
In order to keep a plant from self-pollinating, you must remove part of its reproductive parts. Mendel did this when testing the genes of pea plants, and then he was able to mix a separate plant's pollen without worrying about self-pollination occurring.
Have no genetic means of variation, and must breed pure and identical to the parent.
That the plant will grow over an area wider than the immediate ground in which the plant grows and that natural hybridization may take place are among the benefits that a bee offers and that a self pollinating flowering plant can't achieve on its own. The reason lies in the bee carrying away poll…en particles when leaving the plant. The particles drop along the way to, and at, the bee's final destination. Or they may mix with pollen particles from other plants that the bee pollinates. The result may be stronger, more attractive flowering plants from the union of two different pollen particles. Answer In addition to the above answer, insect pollination on the one plant will be more thorough than simple wind pollination. (MORE)
Yes, honey bees can pollinate plants other than flowers. Forexample, in California, honey bees are absolutely essential topollinate the almond trees.
Self pollination is the transfer of pollen from the anther to the stigma of the same flower or another flower on the same plant.
The insects collect sweet nectar from the flowers. While they are drinking the nectar, pollen sticks to their bodies then when they land on other flowers to get more nectar the pollen fertilizes other flowers. Bees are good at pollinating flowers because they need lots nectar to make honey and they …have furry bodies which makes the pollen stick better. Butterflies have long tounges to help them collect nectar from flowers. (MORE)
Yes bees pollinate on all flowers but not all the time only the ones that they think are the safest to go to
Bees: special hairs on their legs and abdomen allow them to collectlarge amounts of pollen Plants: transfer pollen to other plants
You are probably thinking of gymnosperms. Gymnosperms still have pollen, but it is not protected by a flower like angiosperms. This pollen is transferred and fertilization occurs like any other plant.
Agriculture is highly dependent on plant pollination in order to produce the food we eat. Without adequate pollination less food (if any) will be produced, which means less food to feed more hungry mouths.
Many plants that have both female and male parts, will only have one operational at once (if that makes sense). They tend to have one dormant for a while and then they change statuses. this helps with preventing self pollination yeow
There are two types of pollination, cross pollination and self pollination. self pollination occur when male part (androecium) of the flower of one plant pollinated on the female part (gynoecium) of the same individual. usually plant with self pollination will have characteristics like: 1. the anthe…r and the stigma are matured at the same time - meaning the stigma are ready to receive the pollen grains at the same time as the anther mature to release it pollen grains. 2. the pollen grains and the stigma are compatible. (means stigma can accept the pollen grains-there is no rejection of pollen grains) (MORE)
Some flowers may pollinate by themselves in an action called self-pollination. For this to occur the flower must have both male and female parts and isn't adapted to prevent self-pollination.
An administrative division , subnational entity , or country subdivision is a portion of a country or other political division, established for the purpose of government. Administrative divisions are each granted a certain degree of autonomy, and are required to manage themselves through their o…wn local governments. Countries are divided up into these smaller units to make managing their land and the affairs of their people easier. For example, a country may be divided into provinces, which in turn are divided into counties, which in turn may be divided in whole or in part into municipalities. These are only a few of the names given to administrative subdivisions; more examples are provided below. (MORE)

bees have this special thing in them that helps them to pollinate them even though it just looks like their walking on the flower
Majority of plants prefer cross pollination but most of these can also self pollinate if there is no selfing barrier such as selfincompatibility or protogyny etc.
Self-pollination of a plant is where a plant's pollen (from the anthers) lands on the same plant's stigma, causing it to pollinate itself. This is contrasted with cross-pollination which is where one plant's pollen lands on another plant's stigma. Plants often do specific things to avoid self-pollin…ation if they can. (MORE)
The bee fertilizes the flowers ovules so that it can make seeds and reproduce. In return the bee is given food - nectar and pollen.,
Daffodils have two ways to reproduce: . Asexually by bulbs producing clones of the parent plant. Thisis the most efficient way to produce new plants. . Sexually through seeds producing new and interesting hybrids;however, it takes 5-7 years of growth before the flower appears onthese plants. The… daffodil can be self pollinated, but cross pollinating producesthe most genetic variability in the species or cross species.Generally growers will deadhead the daffodil to put more of thefood into the bulb for next year's blooms.

no actually, they land on a flower and pollinate it without even knowing what they did
The bee carries pollen from flower to flower thereby transferringthe pollen to instigate seed production.
