- Pollen : Fine to coarse powder consisting of microgametophytes, which produce the male gametes of seed plants.
- Pollination management : Horticultural practices that accomplish or enhance pollination of a crop, to improve yield or quality, by understanding of the particular crop's pollination needs, and by knowledgeable management of pollenizers, pollinators, and pollination conditions.
- Pollination : Process by which pollen is transferred in plants from the male reproductive organ (stamen or staminate cone) to the female reproductive organ (pistil or pistillate cone), thereby enabling fertilisation and sexual reproduction.
- Pollinator decline : The reduction in abundance of pollinators in many ecosystems worldwide.
- Protein : A polymer of amino acids; basic building block of living systems.
