Anther and Filament of Stamen

Anther and Filament of Stamen

A stamen is the pollen-bearing organ of a flower and consists of the filament and the anther. The stamen is the male reproductive organ of a flower. The anther is the part of the stamen where the pollen is made. The filament is a small stem like structure that holds up the anther up higher so that there is a higher chance that a pollinator will come by and some pollen will rub on it so the pollinator can pollinate the next flower it visits or it will be blown away with the wind. In the center of this organism is the stamen where the reproductive process of pollination takes place.
