    its seeds. The rhizomes that are found at the roots of these flowers, and the foliage contain a reddish juice. Over time the plants often form vegetative colonies, these colonies self-pollinate to reproduce. The reproductive system of the bloodroot is one that contain several strategies. The bloodroot limits self-pollination, hoping that the pollinator landing on it will bring pollen from another to bloodroot to cross-pollinate them. This happens when the stigma which is the middle of the flower and

    Honeybees are important pollinator in the ecosystem, which provide pollination to crop. Most of the crops are relied on the pollination of honeybee for reproduction. However the colonies of the honeybees are affected by a syndrome, which causes the population of honey bee decrease rapidly in winter. Honey bee undergoes a serious pressure from Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), which is a mysterious problem. It causes a dead colony occurs with no adult bees or dead bee bodies can with the queen,

    Oliver, 2002). In a generic mutualistic relationship, both organisms gain fitness benefits from the interaction, but are not dependent on each other for survival. In the yucca plant-yucca moth interaction, the yucca moth provides essential cross-pollination services to the yucca plant, and the yucca plant provides a predator-free location for the yucca moth to lay its eggs, as well as providing nutrition for the larvae in the form of some of its seeds (Moisett, n.d.). Since the interaction between

    An Analysis on Bees, Pollination, and Their Importance Abstract: This paper explores the roles of bees in their hives and dissecting their extremely sophisticated colonies, with a focus on how they pollinate and why pollination is detrimental to agriculture. In my research I discuss the causes of their declination, and what kind of preventative actions we can take as inhibitors and consumers to support them. This analysis draws upon primary and secondary sources including online journals. What

    evolutionary consequence of deception?” was written by Salvatore Cozzollino and Alex Widmer. In this article they discuss two types of deceptions in orchids: food deception and sexual deception. These methods of deception, which are used for pollination, have proved successful where there are pollinator limitations. However, where there are successes there are also consequences. Some factors that orchid deception effects are: mating systems, the evolution of reproductive isolation, and the evolution

    and pollination will be explained in this paper including their predation, prey and other economic factors. Honeybees play a major role in some land ecosystems where there is green vegetation which are covered for 3 to 4 months a year. Many plants and animals would not survive in certain temperatures, deciduous woodlands, and tropical forests if bees were not existent. This is due to their crucial manufacture of fruits, seeds, berries and nuts which are very reliant on insect pollination and Honeybees

    flying insects that are distinguished by their capacity to produce and store honey. Bees live off of nectar and pollen. They fly approximately a few tenths of a mile to gather nectar. Without bees, pollination would be difficult and time consuming. One-third of world's crops are dependant for bee pollination. Introduction: Honey bees are some of the hardest working creatures on this planet, and although we owe many thanks to them, they are often highly unappreciated. There are around 25,000 different
