Hi Kelly,

I'm just referring to anything that transports pollen from one flower to 
another in a manner that results in pollination of the recipient flower, so 
I use "vector" in the broadest sense.  It had not occurred to me before 
that there might be a methodology involved in establishing that a 
particular bug was a true natural pollinator of a given plant species.
