Pollen: The Hidden Sexuality of Flowers

"The most ravishing biology lessons we've ever seen."-- Chicago Tribune
The publication of the first edition of Pollen broke new ground by melding art and science in a beautiful yet authoritative examination of the design and function of pollen. This new edition contains 20 additional, equally spectacular, photographs published here for the first time. The book also contains a fully updated chapter about the Millennium Seed Bank Project and its recent acquisitions.
Special light and scanning electron microscopy were used to obtain astonishing microphotographic images of pollen grains. These images are accompanied by exquisite photographs of the parent plants. Concise text describes the role of pollen in the reproduction of a variety of plants, ranging from tulips and lilies to orchids and palms. Literary references and early botanical illustrations round out the text.
The first edition of Pollen received rave reviews for its original approach and stunning presentation. Now, with new pictures and updated text, it will maintain its place as one of the most remarkable publications on the topic.

Orange Pop Pollen Burst

Orange Pop Pollen Burst

Upon a mission to vacuum our house
the other day I was distracted by a vase of bright orange lilies sitting in our bedroom
(I had bought them for my husband when he was feeling sick last week and despite them being a $5.99 purchase they've been extremely resilient and gorgeous! Every bloom opened up:).

The flowers were practically glowing seeing as how all the curtains were closed except for one slant of light illuminating the vase.

My photography skills weren't grand enough to get an interesting shot of just the lilies by themselves (though I tried, fruitlessly, but I'm still a numb-nuts with the aperture setting),
So I put myself in the shot and ended up getting pollen all over my face (like a true dork)...but it ended up being cool because I had (oddly enough) worn bright orange eyeshadow that day you can see...matched the lilies.

Also...the house didn't
end up vacuumed that day.

Pine Flowers

Pine Flowers

Male flowers (pollen cones) of a loblolly pine tree. Not very pretty, but flowers just the same. Pollen disseminated by the wind, not insects; thus no need for colorful flowers.
