Many plants depend on bees for pollination, and without bees, we may not have a lot of fruits, vegetables and nuts!

So how do bees pollinate flowers?
When a bee collects nectar and pollen from the flower of a plant, some pollen from the stamens (the male reproductive organ of the flower) sticks to the hairs of her body. When she visits the next flower, some of this pollen is rubbed off onto the stigma, or tip of the pistil (the female reproductive organ of the flower. When this happens, fertilisation is possible, and a fruit, carrying seeds, can develop.
