Abstract

Pollen presenters are floral structures, other than anthers, from which pollen is distributed for cross fertilization between flowers. Found in 5 families of monocots and 20 families of dicots. All taxa in the largest plant family (Asteraceae) have them. Most are associated with the gynoecium. Likely selective advantages include greater accuracy in pollen transfer.
