Pollination Syndromes

Last updated 10 days ago

Learn the language of flowers! What you see (and smell) can tell you what kind of organism (if any) a flower is using for pollination. Pollination syndromes are sets of traits common to flowers using particular types of pollinators. A pollination syndrome is the result of natural selection favoring traits that work best to attract, reward, or achieve pollination via a specific pollinator.
