There is a fun activity that works well in intro level courses. It is a polyclave key to pollinators, which is rather easy to use and serves to point out the characteristics of the different pollination syndromes. The reference is:

  Plant ed,

Can anyone suggest a short paper or interesting website on pollination 
biology that would be appropriate for an introductory biology class?
