Experimental examination of pollinator-mediated selection in a sexually deceptive orchid

de Jager, Marinus L.; Peakall, Rod


Background and Aims Selection exerted by pollinators on flowers is predicted to occur along two distinct axes. While pollinator attraction to flowers is governed by pollinator preferences, pollen transfer efficiency is mediated by the mechanical fit of pollinators to flower morphology. Although pollinator attraction in sexually deceptive orchids is typically underpinned by floral odour, morphological traits are expected to play a vital role in mechanical fit during floral contact with...[Show more]
