How does pollinators occur in gymnosperms?
Gymnosperms do not produce flowers (as opposed to angiosperms), so there is nothing to attract pollinating insects. As a result, they depend on the wind to blow the pollen from the male to the female cones. Pollination can also occur if the male cones are present at the same time and situated above the female cones. In this case self-pollination can occur when the pollen simply falls or blows downward.

No, because pollen is required for a pollen tube to be created for the sperm cells to move into the ovary and connect with egg cells (the process of fertilization). Because t…hen the one of the pollen's cells will divide, forming two haploid sperm. When the pollen tube reaches the ovule in the ovary, it enters the embryo sac and releases both sperm cells. Then, two fertilizations (also called double-fertilization) take place.
Insects typically pollinate flowers as they move from plant to plant searching for food. Many flowers produce nectar, a sugary liquid that many insects eat. When an insect lan…ds on a flower to feed, pollen grains stick to its body. As the insect moves to another flower of the same species, these pollen grains are transferred to the flower's stigma and pollination occurs. Perhaps the most well-known pollinator insects are bees and butterflies, but wasps, moths, flies and beetles can be pollinators as well.
Gymnosperms pollination occurs after the micro spores are released from the male cone. They travel by wind until they get stuck to a female cone due to a sticky resin. Once st…uck a pollen tube is grown and pollination occurs
In the ovary of the flower
Gymnosperms means Naked Seed. Gymnosperms are seed-bearing plants that do not produce flowers. Essentially they are trees and shrubs whose seeds are borne on the scales of co…nes (rather than encased in a fruit or pod), such as the pine tree and the spruce tree. group of seed-producing plants
Wind will carry pollen from the male cones to the female cones. The pollen the sticks to the sticky substance that each ovule makes.
wind, water or insect pollination
they are seed plants
Wind and Insects.
Fruit nor Flowers.
Bumble bees move the pollen around to different plants.
so that plants can reproduce and survive and don't get extinct
Butterflies, visit flowers that are orange, yellow, blue or pink. They like to have a large landing pad. Examples of butterfly flowers are zinnias, SUNFLOWERS, and hollyhocks.… Thankyou........Hope you found what you wanted!
Gymnosperms are any of a group of vascular plants that produce naked seeds (not enclosed in an ovary or fruit). They were formerly considered a class (Gymnospermae) of seed pl…ants, but are now considered polyphyletic in origin and divided into several divisions, four with surviving members typified by the cycadophytes, conifers, ginkgo, and ephedras. fern
After pollination, fertilisation takes place. 1. In plants it is a double fertilisation in which two sperm cells fertilize cells in the plant ovary. 2. The process… begins when a pollen grain sticks to the stigma of the pistil which germinates, and grows a long pollentube. This cell divides by mitosis into two haploid sperm cells. 3. As the pollen tube grows, it makes its way from the stigma, down the style and into the ovary. One sperm makes its way to fertilize the egg cell, producing a diploid (2n) zygote. The second sperm cell fuses with two cell nuclei, producing a triploid (3n) cell. 4. The ovary develops into a fruit and the ovule develops into seed.
