Mismatch in the distribution of floral ecotypes and pollinators: insights into the evolution of sexually deceptive orchids

Phillips, R. D; Bohman, B; Anthony, J. M; Krauss, S. L; Dixon, Kingsley; Peakall, R

Description

Plants are predicted to show floral adaptation to geographic variation in the most effective pollinator, potentially leading to reproductive isolation and genetic divergence. Many sexually deceptive orchids attract just a single pollinator species, limiting opportunities to experimentally investigate pollinator switching. Here, we investigate Drakaea concolor, which attracts two pollinator species. Using pollinator choice tests, we detected two morphologically similar ecotypes within D....[Show more]
