Difference between polleny-pollen and pollen
- the fine spores that contain male gametes and that are borne by an anther in a flowering plant
The foraging bee, if alive after its visit to the beautiful white flowers of almonds, for example, laden with invisible spheres of asphyxiating gas, would be bringing back to its home pollen and nectar mixed with parathion.
The dominant ones were tree rings, and ice cores, but others like varves, pollen, lichens, historic soil temperatures, sea level (eustasy), land levels (isostasy) require similar audits.
Pollen is dust gathered by bees from stamens and collected from the hives as tiny pellets.
