High self-pollen transfer and low fruit set in buzz-pollinated Dianella revoluta (Phormiaceae)

Duncan, David; Nicotra, Adrienne; Cunningham, Saul

Description

We used pollinator observation, flower manipulation, controlled pollination and pollen-tube analysis to better understand the reproductive ecology of Dianella revoluta R.Br., a common species known to have depressed fruit set at fragmented sites. This buzz-pollinated species was found to receive large quantities of self-pollen even during a single pollinator visit, but is only partially self-compatible. This may be the first direct demonstration of pollinator-facilitated, autogamous self-pollen...[Show more]
