The interaction between flowers and animal pollinators has given rise to some of the most striking examples of adaptive evolution. Buzz pollination is a type of pollination in which bees use high frequency vibrations to extract pollen from flowers. Most buzz-pollinated flowers keep pollen tightly locked inside their anthers and the only efficient way to extract it is through animal vibrations. Buzz pollination has been known for more than a century, yet we still know relatively little about it. Here I will present recent work from my lab addressing basic questions on buzz pollination including: How do you build a buzz-pollinated flower? Can bees learn to buzz pollinate? Do all bees produce similar types of vibrations? What are the biomechanical properties of bees and flowers? And, ultimately, why does buzz pollination evolve?
