 what is the function of stigma, style and ovary?

Asked by Bharat Khandelw...(student), on 6/12/11


stigma--is covered in a sticky substance that the pollen grains will adhere to

style--the style raises the stigma away from ovary to decrease the livelihood of pollen contamination. it varries in length.

ovary--this protects the ovule and once fertilisation has taken place it will become the fruit.

@Seema: You can refer to the answer given by your friend. 

Stigma − receptacle for pollen grains

 Style − connects stigma to the ovary 

Ovary − enlarged basal part on which style lies
