School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up A detailed description of the pollination process of flowers, concentrating on bees but including other insects and animals. The process of plant reproduction is carefully explained in clear language accompanied by detailed black-and-white close-up photographs. The life cycle of the social honey bee, the most important pollinator, is summarized, and close-up photographs show exactly how the female worker bee collects pollen and nectar. The roles of bats, moths, butterflies, solitary bees, hummingbirds, and other birds are described also. Flowers and their structures are treated to the same level of detail. The complex arrangements of their reproductive mechanisms which insure the creation of seeds by attracting pollen and nectar gatherers are described in text and photograph. Through stringent attention to scientific detail, this book reveals the intricate connection between plant and pollinator, and the dependence of life on earth to this complex and wondrous process.
