What is pollen production?

Also to know is, where the pollen is produced?
Stamen: The pollen producing part of a flower, usually with a slender filament supporting the anther. Anther: The part of the stamen where pollen is produced. Pistil: The ovule producing part of a flower. The ovary often supports a long style, topped by a stigma.
Similarly, what flowers produce pollen? Angiosperms (flowering plants) and gymnosperms (mostly conifers) produce pollen. The pollen grain is the male gametophyte of plants and is analogous to sperm cells in animals; that is, it is needed for fertilization of the egg cell found in the female gametophyte of these plants.
In this way, what is the function of pollen?
Pollen in plants is used for transferring haploid male genetic material from the anther of a single flower to the stigma of another in cross-pollination. In a case of self-pollination, this process takes place from the anther of a flower to the stigma of the same flower.
Does pollen have DNA?
To do this for pollen, scientists sequence the DNA from a genetic region known to occur in all plants, but which varies from species to species. Pollen grains produce the male reproductive cells (sperm) of the plant. Each pollen grain has a tough outer layer called the exine, made of a protein called sporopollenin.
