Cross-pollination

Two types of pollination occur in nature: cross-pollination and self-pollination. In the second case the pollen passes directly from the male to the female parts of the same flower (autogamous plants).
Cross-pollination instead requires carriers, such as insects, reptiles, birds or the wind, to carry pollen from flower to flower (allogamous plants).
