Thursday Night Nature: Pollinators and Pollination Strategies (Virtual Program)
Many plants depend on the assistance of a third party, usually an animal, to help them successfully achieve pollination. How do plants entice visitors to their flowers and manipulate them to carry pollen to another plant of the same species? We’ll learn about some of the many potential pollinators of native plants, including bees, flies, wasps, beetles and birds, and the strategies plants have evolved to achieve successful pollination by taking advantage of these flower visitors.
Presented By: Mary Anne Borge
