Terraforming: Changing the Atmosphere of a Planet

Terraforming is a theory about the hypothetical possibility of changing the climatic conditions on space bodies: moons, asteroids and stars. But first of all, of course, we are talking about planets. It is assumed that it is possible to make the climate, atmosphere and environmental conditions suitable for the comfortable life of humans, land animals… Continue reading Terraforming: Changing the Atmosphere of a Planet

Where Do the Pollen Grains of Flowering Plants Develop?

The place of production of the pollen grain differs according to the plant: In gymnosperms (seed-producing plants), the pollen grain is produced in strobiles. While in angiosperms (flowering plants), the pollen grain is produced in flowers, specifically in the anther (the part of the stamen where pollen is produced). The anther is a kind of tissue-covered pouch that… Continue reading Where Do the Pollen Grains of Flowering Plants Develop?

How do plants ‘know’ when to flower and what triggers plants to bloom?

How do plants know when it’s time to flower? Like animals, plants also have an internal clock that prepares the internal cellular mechanisms in anticipation of upcoming environmental changes. This ensures that plants only perform specific tasks at the most appropriate time. For example, during the day, they perform photosynthesis, extracting energy from sunlight. However,… Continue reading How do plants ‘know’ when to flower and what triggers plants to bloom?
