Explore the who, what, when, where, why, and how of pollination at Pollination Investigation, a poster exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution, on display at Wright Library April 9-May 8. 

Nearly 90% of flowering plants rely on 200,000 species of animal pollinators for fertilization.  Learn more about a few of them—from butterflies and birds to bats and bugs—through pollinator profile posters at the exhibit.

Don't miss the accompanying hands-on arthropod specimens available in the Children's Room, too!

Pollination Investigation was created by Smithsonian Gardens in collaboration with the National Museum of Natural History and made available by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. It is funded in part by the Smithsonian Women's Committee.
