The Coevolution of Who Pollinates Whom

Lecture no. 13 from the course: Plant Science: An Introduction to Botany

The Coevolution of Who Pollinates Whom

Taught by Professor Catherine Kleier | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Which came first—the pollen or the pollinator?  Learn about the special evolutionary relationship between specific flowers and the insects, birds, and mammals that play a necessary role in plant reproduction.  The flowers’ morphology, color, and quality and quantity of scent are all related to “their” animals’ body shape, sense organs, method of movement, and more in this never-ending co-evolutionary tango.
