About the book
The present investigation deals with 20 plant species (genera) of Angiosperms. Observation on reproductive biology, flowering phenology and morphology were documented on the basis throughout flowering periods that occurred during the study time. Phenology and flower anthesis was also recorded.Flower visitors and their behavior were recorded from morning at 8 O’ clock to evening 5 O’clock (9 hours) at the study period and observed the photograph of different visitor from high zoom (7.1 megapixel) cannon camera. The flower visitors and their mode of visiting were also observed for one year at different time’s interval. The floral studies like inflorescence per flower, number of stamen, pistil, and their size were study for the study of flowering phenology and pollination mechanism in each case.
