Willow Tree Flowers And Why Bumblebees Like Them. - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What are willow tree flowers called?

    • A.

      Catnip

    • B.

      Caterpillar

    • C.

      Catkin

    • D.

      Catacomb

    Correct Answer
    C. Catkin
    Explanation
    Willow tree flowers are called catkins. Catkins are long, slim, cylindrical clusters of flowers that hang down from the branches of willow trees. They are typically covered in fine hairs and contain both male and female flowers. The term "catkin" is derived from the Dutch word "katteken," meaning "kitten," which refers to the resemblance of the flowers to a cat's tail.

  • 2. 

    What will the catkins turn into after the bee visits them?

    • A.

      Leaves

    • B.

      Twigs

    • C.

      Roots

    • D.

      Little black seeds with tiny fluffy parts to help them blow in the wind

    Correct Answer
    D. Little black seeds with tiny fluffy parts to help them blow in the wind
    Explanation
    After the bee visits the catkins, they will turn into little black seeds with tiny fluffy parts to help them blow in the wind. This is because the bee helps in the pollination process by transferring pollen from the male catkins to the female flowers, leading to the formation of seeds. The fluffy parts on the seeds help them disperse through the wind, allowing for potential growth in new locations.

    What eats the nectar in the flowers?

    • A.

      Pigeons

    • B.

      Adult Bumblebees and other pollinating insects

    • C.

      Mice

    • D.

      Willow warblers

    Correct Answer
    B. Adult Bumblebees and other pollinating insects
    Explanation
    Adult bumblebees and other pollinating insects eat the nectar in flowers. These insects play a vital role in pollination, as they transfer pollen from the male parts of a flower to the female parts, allowing the plant to reproduce. Nectar is a sugary liquid produced by flowers to attract pollinators, and it serves as a source of energy for these insects. Pigeons, mice, and willow warblers do not typically feed on nectar, making them incorrect choices for this question.

    What do adult bumblebees feed to their babies?

    • A.

      Cheerios

    • B.

      Milk

    • C.

      Pollen from the flowers

    • D.

      Honey

    Correct Answer
    C. Pollen from the flowers
    Explanation
    Adult bumblebees feed pollen from the flowers to their babies. Pollen is a rich source of protein and other nutrients, making it an ideal food for the developing larvae. Bumblebees collect pollen from flowers using their specialized mouthparts and transport it back to their nests. Once inside the nest, the adult bumblebees regurgitate the pollen and mix it with nectar to create a nutritious paste-like substance called "bee bread." This bee bread is then fed to the young bumblebee larvae, ensuring their proper growth and development.

  • 5. 

    What kind of habitat do willow trees like to grow in?

    • A.

      Very dry dusty places

    • B.

      Wet and damp ground, edges of rivers and lakes

    • C.

      Tops of mountains

    • D.

      At the low tide mark surrounded by seaweeds

    Correct Answer
    B. Wet and damp ground, edges of rivers and lakes
    Explanation
    Willow trees prefer to grow in wet and damp habitats, such as the edges of rivers and lakes. This is because willow trees have adapted to thrive in areas with high water availability. The wet and damp ground provides the necessary moisture for their roots, and the proximity to rivers and lakes ensures a constant water supply. Additionally, willow trees have a high tolerance for flooding, making them well-suited for these types of habitats.
