Since I was just discussing pollination...

Okay, it was a few posts back. But I thought I'd pass on this:

Insect Pollination of Cultivated Crop Plants by S.F. McGregor

It's the entire book, continuously updated. Very impressive. I must confess to a relative ignorance when it comes to insect pollination. Bee sting allergy pretty much headed off any thoughts of bee-keeping (though Lady Evil Fruit has dreams of few hives if we can settle on a large enough chunk of land).

It is amazing how insects play a roll in plants. The whole eco-system seems to work like clockwork.

Bees are well worth the trouble. They don't bite you when you have lots of smoke :)
