Changes in the composition and behaviour of a pollinator guild with plant population size and the consequences for plant fecundity

Phillips, Ryan; Steinmeyer, Felix; Menz, Myles H.M.; Erickson, Todd E.; Dixon, Kingsley

Description

Summary: Small population size in plants is often associated with decreased fruit set through lower pollinator visitation and reduced offspring fitness as a result of inbreeding. Whether the potentially negative impacts of small population size are realized may be potentially influenced by the behaviour and ecology of pollinators. Here, we investigate changes in both guild composition and pollinator behaviour with plant population size in the bird-pollinated Anigozanthos flavidus...[Show more]
