Insects are the most important pollinators of flowering plants (Angiosperms). They are very valuable for humans, pollinating more than on third of the plants used for food, most of the medicinal plants and timber trees (specially in the tropics). Of course, pollinators are also incredibly valuable for flowering plants on the wild, where many species depends totally or at least partially on insects for their reproduction.
