An understanding of the biochemical foundation for plant-pollinator interactions

Author(s): Rakesh Das, Madhumita Bhuiya, NU Visakh, Amit Layek and Kaushik Pramanik
Abstract: Pollination is an ecosystem service performed by many of entities, majorly are animals like insects, birds, bats etc. This is mutually beneficial for both the organisms where some get their foods as rewards, while others benefited by reproduction. The majority of pollinators that routinely visit flowers to acquire nectar, pollen, and other things accidentally pollinate them, which leads to fruit set and reproduction of blooming plants. In their environment, plants emit a variety of chemical cues that have an impact on how animals interact with them while visiting. For example, pollinators' attractiveness to plant sources is influenced by factors like flower colour, floral perfume, pollen quality, and nectar nutritional value. This review article explores the chemical perspective of mutualism between plants and pollinators.
