1. MATHEMATICAL INTERPRETATION OF AESTHETIC VALUE OF FLORAL STRUCTURE AND MODE OF POLLINATION IN SOME ANGIOSPERM PLANTS by SNEHA BALAKRISHNAN1, SREELAKSHMI KUTTIKOD1, SURESH KUMAR K.A.2 AND PRASANTH G. NARASIMHA-SHEN
The beauty of the flower can be quantified through golden ratio analysis. Objects with shape which is in golden ratio seem to be more attractive. Compared to anemophilous flowers, entomophilous flowers are more attractive to perform the function of inviting the pollinators. If length to breadth ratio of petals in a flower is very much nearer to the golden ratio, then that flower will be more attractive and vice-versa and sample survey studies have been substantiated this fact. It was found that the ``closeness'' of length to breadth ratio of petals to golden ratio is an indication of the range of beauty of flowers.
