|Title:||Floral Morphology, Phenology and Pollination in the Wet Tropics||Contributor(s):||Boulter, Sarah, L. (author); Kitching, Roger, L.

Ultimately these are expressed in the form of flower morphology, flowering phenology and the attraction of associated flower visitors. A plant's fitness depends upon its reproductive success, particularly in allogamous matings; thus pollination becomes of paramount importance within the wider field of floral biology.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Living in a Dynamic Tropical Forest Landscape, p. 224-239||Publisher:||Blackwell Publishing||Place of Publication:||Oxford, UK||ISBN:||9781405156431||Field of Research (FOR):||059999 Environmental Sciences not elsewhere classified||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://au.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-1405156430.html
