Default A Primer on Pollination

Susan Mahr has posted an excellent article about pollination on the Wisconsin Master Gardener website:
Welcome to the Wisconsin Master Gardener Program

The pdf file is available here:
http://www.hort.wisc.edu/mastergardener/Features/misc/pollination/pollination.pdf

It does a nice job of describing the basic pollination process, the importance of pollination and pollination vectors (pollinators). It's very well written and illustrated. If you are unfamiliar with pollination it's a nice easy way to familiarize yourself with this important process. If you are familiar with pollination it's a very nice review.
