Schult., Calotropis procera (Willd.) R. Br. I. c., Periploca aphylla Dcne., Eremostachys vicaryi Benth. ex Hook. f., In Jacq., Salvia moorcroftiana Wall. ex Bth. Pongamia pinnata (L.) Pierre, and Viola stocksii Boiss. were studied. Macrophotography of plants were done in field by using Sony Digital Camera whereas microphotography of pollen was done in EM laboratory Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad.
