Chemical ecology and pollination biology of the Australian cycad macrozamia communis

Wallenius, Thomas Christopher


Cycad pollination typically involves an obligate interaction, in which a specialised insect herbivore feeds, oviposits and pollinates during a short period of cone pollen-shed and receptivity. Two key traits of cycad reproductive biology, cone thermogenesis and emission of volatile organic compounds, are thought to mediate dispersal and colonisation behaviours of the insect pollinators. However, the variation of these two cone traits and the physiological responses of pollinators to them have...[Show more]
