Abstract

In this chapter, I shall discuss only some pollinatory aspects of the flower biology of some tropical trees and lianes, leaving seed production and dispersal matters in the capable hands of Dr. Janzen. Floral features important in pollination biology are (1) the attractants that bring pollinatorily useful visitors to the flowers, (2) the rewards these visitors receive from the flowers, and (3) the deterrents that may prevent overexploitation of the flora l resources by visitors.
