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.
