- Stefan Vogel pioneered the study of floral scent in his 1963 book, “Duftdrüsen im Dienste der Bestäubung”.
- Vogel used histological staining to argue for the metabolic costs - and likely importance - of floral scent, referring to over 200 case studies.
- Many of Vogel's predictions about scent, as well as thermogenesis, have been confirmed by subsequent studies.
Here we celebrate the life of the eminent botanist, Stefan Vogel, by outlining the influence of his pioneering work on floral scent, published in his 1963 book, “Duftdrüsen im Dienste der Bestäubung”. This book, written before the advent of capillary GC-MS, explored scent production in diverse flowering plants through histological staining of complex floral “scent glands”. The expenditure of stored starch granules provided a metabolic cost for scent production, suggesting that scent is not a trivial by-product. Vogel also anticipated the importance of floral heat production (thermogenesis) in pollination, both in terms of its direct energetic effects on pollinators and its physiological impact on scent biosynthesis and emission.
