  • It is the male sex organ of the flower.
  • Composed of stamens.
  • Each stamen consists of a stalk or filament and an anther.
  • Each anther is usually bilobed and each lobe has two chambers, pollen sac.
  • Pollen grains are produced inside the pollen sacs.
  • A sterile stamen is called staminode.
  • Epipetalous: stamens attached to the petals. E.g. brinjal.
  • Epiphyllous: stamens attached to the perianth. E.g. lily.
  • Polyandrous: stamens are free.
  • Monoadelphous: stamens united into one bunch or one bundle e.g. China rose.
  • Diadelphous: stamens fused to form two bundles as in pea.
  • Polyadelphous: stamens fused to form more than two bundles as in citrus.
