In this laboratory exercise, students will explore the diversity of flower and fruit adaptations that have evolved to accomplish pollination and seed dispersal and investigate the coevolution of angiosperms and their pollinators. In addition, students will be introduced to another “tool” that biologists use to study life… Natural History Collections.

    Are there instructor materials for this lab?  I am trying to develop a version to be used in remote learning and wondered if there are images of flowers/pollinators or a list of flowers to be used in part C on pollinators and pollination syndromes. There is also a statement in the Agave/bat section to "Look at the images provided of flowers from these three bat pollinated plants."  Are these images available?  I can, of course, find images on my own but wondered if this is available and I am somehow missing it on the website. Thanks!
