Anther and filament of stamen

 

The stamen is the pollen-producing organ of a flower. The stalk is known as the filament, and the tip is known as the anther. The anther contains the microsporangia. The anther can be attached to the filament in two ways: basifixed or versatile. Basifixed means the anther is attached at its base to the filament, while versatile means it is attached at its center to the filament.
