Nectar is the most important reward offered by plants to pollinating animals. This book is a modern and interdisciplinary text on nectar and nectaries, prompted by the expansion of knowledge in ecological and molecular fields, and the strong recent interest in pollination biology. The topics covered vary widely: they include historical aspects, the structure and ultrastructure of nectaries and relationships to plant systematics, the dynamics of nectar secretion, nectar chemistry and the molecular biology of defence proteins, and more.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Nectaries and nectar is a welcome effort that provides a comprehensive review of the advances made in the last three decades in the study of nectary systematics, structure, and ultrastructure, as well as nectar production, presentation, chemistry, molecular biology, nectar consumers, and ecology. ... the big advantage of this book is that it is written by experts in the field. ... Overall there is much to recommend this book as a major reference text and resource for the many biologists ... ." (Lynn S. Adler, Ecology, Vol. 89 (4), 2008)
