The Flower And Its Value

God has created many things in this world that make people happy. If we talk about flowers, they have their own example. Flowers are also a beautiful blessing of Allah and this is the blessing that is visible in the house and place.

Flowers have their own distinct identity, character, and significance. Flowers are very delicate, and the colors are what attract someone. Whether it is a human or a bird. The scent of the flowers is something special.

Flowers in gardens also have their own characteristics. And the wind makes them happier as soon as people like to walk in the gardens. The silence of the gardens and the flowers calm the people.

And they are so beautiful that man forgets all his worries for a while, like rain, rain is the most important and beautiful blessing. Man is happy with the rainy season. The smell of rain is a different idea, but if we sit there for a while, we get rid of our usual worries. Flowers are not limited to houses and gardens but are also characteristic of flowers that are included in definitions. For example, when we
Apologize for someone's by heart, we use flowers. In books In poetry, flowers are also seen.

The flower doesn't say anything, but it says everything. They also give flowers as gifts. If we give a flower to someone, the person in front does not see what is in front of us, and how long we will keep it, but the flower tells him how generously and lovingly it is given. We use flowers to express happiness. Flowers come in handy when celebrating someone. Seeing the beauty of the flower, the anger of the person in front disappears.

Flowers

Flower, the characteristic reproductive structure of angiosperm. As popularly used, the term “flower” especially applies when part or all of the reproductive structure is distinctive in color and form.In their range of color, size, form, and anatomical arrangement, flowers present a seemingly endless variety of combinations. They range in size from minute blossoms to giant blooms. In some plants, such as , magnolia, tulip, and petunia, each flower is relatively large and showy and is produced singly, while in other plants, such as aster, snapdragon , and lilac, the individual flowers may be very small and are borne in a distinctive cluster known as an inflorescence . Regardless of their variety, all flowers have a uniform function, the reproduction of the species through the production of seed.

Form And Types

Basically, each flower consists of a floral axis upon which are borne the essential organs of reproduction (stamen and pistils) and usually accessory organs (sepals and petals); the latter may serve to both attract pollinating insects and protect the essential organs. The floral axis is a greatly modified stem; unlike vegetative stems, which bear leaves, it is usually contracted, so that the parts of the flower are crowded together on the stem tip, the receptacle. The flower parts are usually arrayed in whorls (or cycles) but may also be disposed spirally, especially if the axis is elongate. There are commonly four distinct whorls of flower parts:

(1) an outer calyx consisting of sepals; within it lies

(2) the corolla, consisting of petals;

(3) the Andrei's, or group of stamens; and in the center is

(4) the gymnasium, consisting of the pistils

Relation of Flowers And Humans

Humans love flowers! We admire their varied colors and shapes, enjoy the way they smell, and (especially on a day like today) give them to those we love.

But why has this affection for flowers evolved in us – given that flowers have certainly not evolved to impress us? In fact, we gain very little benefit (apart from joy) from them.

It is true that some flowers are edible, and that flowers may indicate where an edible part of a plant can be found, or help us distinguish an edible from a toxic plant – but these “uses” of flowers can hardly explain their universal appeal to our species.

One clue is that flowers stimulate the same sensory apparatus that humans use for assessing the quality of fruits. Fruits often have colors similar to flowers, and one theory suggests that romantic color vision in primates has evolved to better detect and evaluate edible fruits. From an olfactory perspective, floral volatile are chemically similar or even identical to those emitted by fruits, and thus smelling a flower may possibly bring to mind a ripe, sweet fruit.

But the allure of floral fragrances is also culturally embedded into human society, as the perfumes we daub or spray on our bodies are often derived from flowers. Indeed, the search for new fragrance compounds from flowers is carried out by specialist perfumers as a form of bio-prospecting. Roman Kaiser, one of the most famous and dedicated of these perfumers, has undertaken a number of epic journeys in search of new fragrances. One of these field trips involved sampling the scent of flowers in the canopy of a rain forest while suspended from a hot air balloon!

On the other extreme, some flowers have a repulsive smell when they imitate decaying matter, dung, or carrion. The flowers deploy these unpleasant smells to attract animals such as carrion flies and dung beetles which unwittingly disperse the pollen as they search for places to lay their eggs. Such flowers elicit repulsion in humans because they stimulate sensory perception that evolved to help us avoid rotten or toxic material. Interestingly, new research shows that fruit flies share our human aversion to fecal odors and use special receptors around their mouth to detect and avoid animal feces when searching for fruits on which to lay their eggs. The ultimate reason why humans and fruit flies stay clear of these odors is probably because decaying protein-rich organic material is often populated by harmful bacteria.

In general, flowers elicit sensory responses in us that have evolved in a different context, and that make us like (or, rarely, dislike) them. This biological concept is called “receiver bias”, and is applicable not only to humans enchanted by flowers but also to the pollinators which are the real targets of their alluring signals. The flowers of most plant species contain a food reward for their pollinators in order to encourage loyalty, but pollinators are also frequently tricked into believing that flowers are food sources when they are in fact completely unrewarding. This form of deception is particularly common among orchids. There are about 25,000 species in the orchid family and it has been estimated that around 40% of these species offer no rewards to their pollinators. Biologists have often puzzled over why plants would benefit from cheating rather than rewarding their pollinators. One suggestion is that the lack of rewards discourages pollinators from lingering for too long on any one plant, and thus promotes cross-pollination.

Flowers that don’t offer floral rewards, and even a few that do, often use various forms of mimicry to attract their pollinators. When asked to think of an example of mimicry in nature, most people will think of wing pattern mimicry in butterflies, a classical example of adaptation through natural selection that was discovered by the English naturalist Henry Walter Bates during his travels in South America in the mid-nineteenth century. Yet few are aware that there is also an abundance of examples of floral mimicry in plants. These elaborate natural hoaxes include flowers that attract their insect pollinators by posing as dead animals, or as receptive female wasps, or even as wounded bees.

In some of these cases, the flowers are pretending to offer food and thereby attract hungry pollinators. However, the greatest deception occurs when flowers emit certain signals, often chemical, that trick pollinators into believing that the flowers are mating partners, or sites to lay eggs. In some of these cases, hapless insects will even ejaculate or lay eggs on the flowers. The flower heads of one African daisy species are even decorated with raised dark spots, giving sex-starved male insects the impression that the flower heads are occupied by a whole bevy of resting female insects!

Floral mimicry exploits the powerful receiver biases of pollinators. It evolves because it increases the attractiveness of flowers to pollinators, thereby promoting the genes of the mimic through the additional seeds that are produced. Indeed, the tremendous diversity of flowers in plant families such as the orchids, arums, and milkweeds is in part due to the variety of different mimicry strategies that have evolved to deceive insect pollinators.

Nobel Prize winner Konrad Lorenz once said that it is the affection towards a living object that drives our scientific endeavor towards it. This is certainly true of our research on floral biology, so perhaps it’s fair to say that we were already biased towards flowers, and that it is due to this affection that some of their secrets have been uncovered.
