Summary
"A wide-ranging investigation into the extraordinary sex lives of flowering plants. Flowers have many intriguing adaptations for attracting pollinators, and these coevolved relationships are often unexpected and bizarre. Includes unusual bird and mammal pollinators, flowers that smell like rotting flesh, orchids that lure male wasps with the promise of sex, and much more." -- www.carolina.com
