The 16 papers in this volume consider the functional ecology of pollen in relation to its structure and constituents as a framework towards a better understanding of evolutionary processes that mold pollination biology. "Special edition of Plant Systematics and Evolution, Vol 222, Nos 1-4, 2000"
... It is a book that has much to offer all students of plant/animal interactions. Bulletin of the British Ecological Society 2001
