Plant-pollinator interactions : from specialization to generalization

Author: Nickolas Merritt Waser; Jeff Ollerton
Publisher: Chicago : University of Chicago Press, ©2006.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Just as flowering plants depend on their pollinators, many birds, insects, and bats rely on plants for energy and nutrients. This plant-pollinator relationship is essential to the survival of natural and agricultural ecosystems. Plant-Pollinator Interactions portrays the intimate relationships of pollination over time and space and reveals patterns of interactions from individual to community levels, showing how  Read more...
