About this book

A fully updated edition of this classic New Naturalist first published in 1973 as The Pollination of Flowers. The methods of pollination, by which pollen reaches the female flower, enabling fertilisation and seed production to take place, are some of the most varied and fascinating mechanisms in the natural world. This book describes all the ways in which pollination is effected: by wind, water, birds, bats, but most of all, by insects.
