Abstract

Following the Darwinan elucidation of evolution by natural selection, many naturalists were inspired to consult nature for evidences of adaptation between flowers and their animal visitors. One result was the compilation or long lists of insects and other animals encountered on flowers (e.g., Miller 1883; Knuth, 1906-9; etc.) without very much attention being given to the effectiveness of the visitors in causing pollination. Then, with the decline of natural history, the lists ceased to be produced.
