Overview

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 shape pollinatio n biology. They can be roughly classified into three main topics: poll en structure and constituents, pollen evolutionary ecology, and the po llen-pollinator interface. Floral rewards, such as pollen and nectar, are only one aspect of the multidimensional pollination kaleidoscope. Other aspects include the various mechanisms in distributing or collec ting pollen, the question of pollen longevity, or the convergence of e volution in angiosperm pollination.
