Episode 10: Pollen Facts #2 and Tulip Mania

 

This week Daniel shares part two of his two part series: Fun Facts About Pollen. It includes a discussion of the ways that pollen moves from anther to stigma and the various organisms that collect and consume pollen (including humans!).

Casey talks about tulips. She covers Tulip Mania, a mosaic virus that gives tulip petals their stripes, a very expensive tulip, and more.
