"all researchers in the field of flower biology will find something to interest them in these thought-provoking reviews and syntheses". * Systematic Biology * "This comprehensive book is dedicated to the late David G. Lloyd, whose conceptual synthesis laid the foundation for modern plant reproductive biology. The chapters draw from an international slate of experts and, like Lloyd's work itself, integrate mathematical theory and empiricism. This book provides a state-of-the-art view of reproductive biology today." Bioscience, October 2007 'An excellent buy for £37.50.' Bulletin of the British Ecological Society, 2007 38:2
