Cognitive Ecology of Pollination: Animal Behaviour and by Lars Chittka,James D. Thomson

By Lars Chittka,James D. Thomson

very important breakthroughs have lately been made in our knowing of the cognitive and sensory skills of pollinators: how pollinators understand, memorise and react to floral signs and rewards; how they paintings flora, circulation between inflorescences and delivery pollen. those new findings have noticeable implications for the evolution of floral reveal and variety, yet such a lot current courses are scattered throughout a variety of journals in very various examine traditions. This booklet brings jointly for the 1st time extraordinary students from many alternative fields of pollination biology, integrating the paintings of neuroethologists and evolutionary ecologists to offer a multi-disciplinary procedure. geared toward graduates and researchers of behavioural and pollination ecology, plant evolutionary biology and neuroethology, it is going to even be an invaluable resource of knowledge for someone drawn to a contemporary view of cognitive and sensory ecology, pollination and floral evolution.
