Reviews

Plant-Pollinator Interactions covers an important theme in evolutionary ecology with far-reaching applications in conservation and agriculture. This book will find an eager audience in specialists studying pollination and other mutualisms, as well as with biologists who are interested in ecological, evolutionary, and behavioral aspects of the specialization and generalization of species.--Ethology "Ecology & Evolution"

"Plant-Pollinator Interactions is a multifaceted exploration of the specialization-generalization continuum in pollination; however, it goes well beyond pollination to draw novel connections with other interspecific interactions. Conceptually framed, highly synthetic, and up-to-date, this impressive edited volume should appeal to a broad cross-section of ecologists and evolutionary biologists."--Judith Bronstein, University of Arizona

"This is an excellent book that masterfully covers the field of pollination biology at different scales, from populations through communities to landscapes, and from both basic and applied viewpoints. It represents a balanced mix of largely conceptual and empirical chapters. Empirical work employs the three mainstays of ecological research-- careful observation, planned experimentation, and comparative analysis with phylogenetic control. This book would be an ideal starting point for students interested in studying plant-pollinator interactions but also, more broadly, for anyone interested in interspecific interactions and coevolution."--Jacqui Shykoff, Laboratoire d'Ecologie, Systematique et Evolution, CNRS-Universite Paris-Sud

A masterful overview of a rich field in a stage of dynamic ferment....Plant-Pollinator Interactions will define much of the debate on the central issue of specialization and generalization in pollination biology. I recommend it to all students of pollination, as well as to those interested in broader issues of plant and animal interactions.--Henry F. Howe "BioScience" (1/1/2007 12:00:00 AM)
In Plant-Pollinator Interactions, Waser and Ollerton bring together experts from different regions of the world to address how patterns of specialization and generalization in pollination systems vary across spatial and temporal scales. . . . An important contribution to our understanding of plant-pollinator interactions. . . . By reading this book . . . one will conclude that pollination biology is undergoing a renaissance that will ultimately provide us with a deeper understanding of the evolutionary and ecological processes involved in this fascinating interaction.--Shuang-Quan Huang "Trends in Ecology and Evolution"
