    Secretion (from Latin secretus (“[having been] separated”)  is a term coming from biology and describes a process by which substances are produced and discharged from a cell, exocrine gland, or organ for a particular function in the organism. It’s the organic process of synthesizing and releasing substances in a liquid or semisolid state like saliva, sebum, blood, plasma, semen, urine or sweat, and serves different functions: thermoregulation, moistening, feeding, procreation, defense or intoxication.

    Specific to this process of secretion is the temporary activation and sudden gushing. The intervals of ejections depend on several factors: Nectar secretion for example increases as the flower is visited by pollinators. After pollination, the nectar is frequently reabsorbed into the plant. The amount of nectar in flowers at any given time is variable due to many factors, including flower age, plant location, and habitat management.
