Pollination and Reproduction Biology,

Published: 04 Jun 2010

Edited By: Heinz Rennenberg and Theo Elzenga


Over the past few years a number of articles on floral biology (pollination, reproduction, seed development) have been published in Plant Biology. That this work has taken such an important place on the pages of our journal was mainly a matter of chance. The editors are, however, very glad that it happened and have taken the opportunity to bring these articles together in a special issue, emphasizing the importance of this field of research.
