Over Easy: Flower power in the age of aggression - Press Herald
Fighting Fiddleheads of Lincoln County, or the Brunswick Begonias, or the Newcastle Nasturtiums.
Flowers have a calming effect on people. Back in 1967, young people were asked to wear flowers in their hair when visiting San Francisco for what was labeled the Summer of Love. That was flowers, not guns or blackjacks or any other kind of weapon.
If we adopt this idea, anger and violence may be reduced, because who wants to hit someone dressed like a begonia?
And then there’s the ritual holiday sporting events that mark some special day. For example, someday might we not be treated to our classic Thanksgiving turkey while on the television is the special holiday football game pitting the Lupins of Lincoln Academy against the Delphiniums of Morse. Who knows?

A tree in Brazil’s arid northeast rains nectar from its flowers - Science News
While the study details H.

of New Brunswick in Fredericton, Canada, suggests the team’s isolation of
individual, potentially bat-attracting compounds in nectar is the tip of the
“There are so few studies
that have tested nectar for scent that once we start looking there is likely to
be many more examples,” says Parachnowitsch. “Scents in nectar are probably
common, but we are a very long way from understanding their functional roles
and if there is any differences with various pollinators.”

For scores of wild bee species, females and males visit very different flowers for food—a discovery that could be important for conservation efforts, according to Rutgers-led research.
Indeed, the diets of female and male bees of the same species could be as different as the diets of different bee species, according to a study in the journal PLOS ONE.

Wild bee males and females like different flowers - Futurity: Research News

Five years ago, when Winfree Lab members were evaluating federally funded programs to create habitat for pollinators, Roswell noticed that some flowers were very popular with male bees and others with females. That spurred a study to test, for as many wild bee species as possible, whether males and females visit different kinds of flowers.

New Jersey is home to about 400 species of wild bees—not including Apis mellifera Linnaeus, the domesticated western honeybee whose males do not forage for food, Roswell notes.
The scientists collected 18,698 bees from 152 species in New Jersey. The bees visited 109 flower species in six semi-natural meadows with highly abundant and diverse flowers. The meadows were managed to promote mostly native flowers that attract pollinators.
Female bees build, maintain, collect food for and defend nests, while male bees primarily seek mates. Both sexes drink floral nectar for food, but only females collect pollen that serves as food for young bees, so they forage at greater rates than males.
From the flowers’ standpoint, both female and male bees are important pollinators—though female bees are more prolific because they spend more time foraging at flowers.
Before mating, the males of some species travel from the area where they were born. Targeting their preferences for flowers may help maintain genetically diverse bee populations...
