Symbiotic Relationships

Symbiotic Relationships
Bees and Flowers

Bees and flowers have a symbiotic relationship. Bees benefit flowers by helping them spread their pollen to reproduce, and flowers benefit bees by producing food for them. The pollen is transferred from anther to stigma, which results in reproduction. This process is called pollination. Pollination is important to us because we rely on it for agriculture. It is vital that we have plants for food, material items, and to keep our atmosphere healthy.


Without pollination plants would no longer be able to make seeds and they would eventually become extinct. If that were to happen many insects and other bugs would also face extinction, and small animals that survived off those bugs would starve. Soon larger animals that feasted on those smaller animals would lose their food source. In the long run, life as we know it would be no more.
