A Pollinator is a biotic agent that transfers pollen from the male anthers to the female stigma of a flower to achieve fertilization. Butterflies are sometimes known as pollinators. Right now this butterfly is trying to get pollen from this flower.

A spore, on some certain plants helps it reproduce. It is adapted for surviving extended periods of time in unfavorable conditions.  Spores are the units of asexual reproduction, because a single spore develops into a new organism. The spore on this plant has already asexually reproduced into a new organism.

A frond is a large, divided leaf. They usually have stalk called the petolia supporting a flattened blade. These leaves that I have found represent a frond. The two sides of the leaf is divided evenly through.

The ovary is a part of the female reproductive system. It is apart of the pistil, which holds the ovule and is located with the base of the petals and sepals. The flower that I have found has an ovary.

The cambium that I have found on my tree exists between the darker bark and the lighter wood, which the layer is a phloem tissue. The phloem tissue is a part of the trees plumbing system that transports the tree’s photosynthesized food from the leaves or to the growing buds of fruits.
