LaBare, Kelly M.; Broyles, Steven B.; Klotz, R. Lawrence
American Biology Teacher, v62 n4 p292-96 Apr 2000
Discusses the importance of studying nectar biology. Describes how to extract nectar from various flowers, measure nectar volume, determine sugar concentration, and determine caloric value per nectar sample. These data are then related to hummingbird energetics to determine how many flowers are required to supply the pollinator with its caloric needs. (SAH)
