Bat as pollinator

Bats play an important role in the pollination of many wild plants and crops. Bats and plants that they pollinate have been engaged in coevolutionary processes for millions of years, which resulted in the most impressive morphological, physiological, and behavioural adaptations in the world.

Pollinators and their importances

In nature, there are about 352,000 species of flowering plants that rely on pollinators to reproduce. About 75% of plant species globally have increased yield and quality when pollinated by animals. In the wild, there are not only insects and birds that pollinate plants, but also bats, reptiles, and even primates.
