Kelsea Willenbrock photos 33-35

Style and stigma of a carpel: the stigma, the part at the very top, is the sticky surface on top of the pistil on which pollen sticks, and pollinators are attracted. The style, or the elongated part beneath the stigma carries and separates the stigma from the ovary of the flower.

Different types of carbohydrates: 
                               Simple: contain sugars and are easy to digest (maple syrup)
                               Complex: starched made from several linked sugars and contain some fibers (pasta)
                               Fibers: regulates blood glucose levels, cannot be completely broken down into sugars    (orange).

Pollen: tiny spores in seed plants that contain the male gametophyte. It's hard to see in this picture, but the pollen is stuck to the end of the stigma .
