About this book

Language: German

Flower ecology explores the relationships between flowers and their pollinators. While Volume 1 of this two-part series focused on the animal partner, the second volume examines the sexual life of plants. It asks the question of how sexuality in plants developed in the first place, how they coped with the change from water to land and how they found and shaped their mode of reproduction to reach their goal: the production of new offspring with new properties to meet the ever-changing demands of life. Something in which plants show incredible ingenuity: they attract and reward their pollinators with nectar and ambrosia, but they also secure the services of their animal partners through fraud and deceit.

Summary in German:
Die Blütenökologie erforscht die Beziehungen zwischen den Blüten und ihren Bestäubern. Während im ersten Band dieses Werks die tierischen Partner im Fokus standen, beleuchtet der zweite Band das Sexualleben der Pflanzen. Er geht der Frage nach, wie es überhaupt zur Sexualität bei den Pflanzen kam, wie sie den Wechsel aus dem Wasser ans Land bewältigt haben und wie sie ihre Liebesboten gefunden und geformt haben, um zum Ziel zu kommen: die Produktion neuer Nachkommen mit neuen Eigenschaften, um den ständig wechselnden Anforderungen des Lebens nachzukommen. Dabei zeigen sich die Pflanzen erstaunlich einfallsreich: Sie locken und belohnen ihre Bestäuber mit Nektar und Ambrosia, aber auch mit Betrug und Täuschung sichern sie sich die Dienste ihrer tierischen Partner.
