dc.description.abstract Pollination systems of cycads usually involve obligate mutualisms in which the cycad taxa depend on between one and three insect pollinators. Generally, the pollination periods of many cycad taxa are characterised by odour emissions in pollen shedding (male) and receptive (female) cones usually accompanied by heat production. The emission of cone odours and heat production coincide with periods of insect activity on the cones... en_ZA
