Translation and elucidation of common terms in pollination biology

A list of common terms in pollination biology was compiled from a large body of literature. For terms with existing Chinese translation, we checked and polished their translation; for those yet without translation, we proposed rendition based on the principle of understandability from the appearance. For important terms and the terms prone to be misunderstood, we provided elucidation or explanation with examples.

Key words:pollination biology, term, Chinese translation, elucidation.
