Seed plants have evolved a vast array of pollination mechanisms, some involving fascinating interactions between animal vectors and highly specialized flowers, others essentially abiotic, utilizing either wind or water as a dispersal agent. Among the gymnosperms wind pollination is primary, although biotic systems have evolved in a number of groups. In contrast, anemophily has evolved secondarily in the angiosperms; the primitive angiosperms and their immediate ancestors were zoogamous… CONTINUE READING
