Description

A completely revised and rewritten edition of this comprehensive survey of the botanical problems of pollination ecology approached from both a theoretical and a practical viewpoint. Examples are drawn from all geographical areas where pollination has been studied and general principles are illustrated by a number of concrete examples. Introductory chapters survey the technical problems and draw comparisons with spore dissemination in cryptogams and pollination in gymnosperms. The following chapters deal with angiosperm pollination and are divided into three parts: organs involved in pollination, flower types and pollinator activities
