Some flies feed on nectar and pollen as adults (particularly bee flies and hoverflies). The flowers they visit often have a strong scent, and tend to be purple, violet, blue, and white. On the other hand, male fruit flies are attracted to some wild orchids which do not produce nectar. Instead, they produce a precursor of the fly's sex pheromone. Explore thousands of old and rare books, including illuminated manuscripts, fine press editions, illustrated books, incunabula, limited editions and miniature books. Whether you're a budding rare book collector or a bibliophile with an evniable collection, discover an amazing selection of rare and collectible books from booksellers around the.

Many flies, however, as the hover or Syrphid flies, visit the same flowers as do bees, so far as they are accessible to them. Bird-flowers are few in number in this country; but in South America they are very abundant and are pollinated by humming-birds, of which there are more than species described. Here, we present a variety of floras and wildflower books by geographical area that our botanists and non-botanists frequently use. Some are technical, such as the major regional or state Floras directed at the advanced or professional student; and, some are colorful picture-rich field guides aimed at the general wildflower viewer.
