Dear friends,

I am preparing a general course on Entomology for undergraduates.
Perhaps one of you could suggest a book, book chapter or journal article
dealing with the connection between the rapid increase of angiosperm
diversity during the Lower Cretaceous and the concomitant advent of
coevolutionary relationships between plants and pollinating insects. I
need some material to illustrate the importance of insects in "shaping"
the modern floras.

Your assistance will be much appreciated.
