Votre note
Important breakthroughs have recently been made in our understanding of the cognitive and sensory abilities of pollinators : how pollinators perceive, memorize and react to floral signals and rewards ; how they work flowers, move among inflorescences, and transport pollen. These new findings have obvious implications for the evolution of floral display and diversity, but most existing publications are scattered across a wide range of journals in very different research traditions. This book brings together for the first time outstanding scholars from many different fields of pollination biology, integrating the work of neuroethologists and evolutionary ecologists to present a multidisciplinary approach. Aimed at graduates and researchers of behavioral and pollination ecology, plant evolutionary biology, and neuroethology, it will also be a useful source of information for anyone interested in a modern view of cognitive and sensoryecology, pollination, and floral evolution.
    • The effect of variation among floral traits on the flower constancy of pollinators
    • Behavioral and neural mechanisms of learning and memory as determinants of flower constancy
    • Subjective evaluation and choice behavior by nectar-and pollen-collecting bees
    • Honeybee vision and floral displays : from detection to close-up recognition
    • Floral scent, olfaction, and scent-driven foraging behavior
    • Adaptation, constraint, and chance in the evolution of flower color and pollinator color vision
    • Foraging and spatial learning in hummingbirds
    • Bats as pollinators : foraging energetics and floral adaptations
    • Vision and learning in some neglected pollinators : beetles, flies, moths, and butterflies
    • Pollinator individually : when does it matter ? Effects of predation risk on pollinators and plants
    • Pollinator preference, frequency dependence, and floral evolution
    • Pollinator-mediated assortative mating : causes and consequences
    • Behavioral responses of pollinators to variation in floral display size and their influences on the evolution of floral traits
    • The effects of floral design and display on pollinator, economics and pollen dispersal
    • Pollinator behavior and plant speciation : looking beyond the "ethnological isolation" paradigm.

James D. Thomson is Professor and Chair of the Department of Zoology at the University of Toronto, Canada, where he specializes in linking pollinator foraging strategies with floral evolution. He is currently Editor of the Quarterly Review of Biology and President of the American Society of Naturalists. Lars Chittka is Associate Professor at the University of Würzburg, Germany. His research interests focus on the ecology and evolution of insect sensory and cognitive capacities.
