A hermaphrodite is a flower that has both male and female parts for pollonation.
A few ways plants can get pollinated are by insects, such as bees. Another way plants can get polinated is by hand, using special techniques. Plants can also be pollinated naturally, from elements such as wind. A final way that plants can become polinated is actually if they are hermaphrodites, meaning that they are able to self polinate.
DNA technology has influenced the way that we breed crops, because we are able to breed plants to be able to form a resistance to certain diseases.
