This new book presents topical research in the study of the mechanisms, ecology and agricultural advances of pollination. Topics discussed include pollination strategies; the pollination mechanisms in common and rare flowers of the Passiflora species; pollen tube growth and ovule abortion in Olea Europaea (Oleaceae); the application of airborne pollen data to agronomical research and orbicules in relation to pollination modes.
